About “Along the Way” a short film by Garrett King

Along the Way documents and follows the lives of four filmmakers and photographers as they venture through Norway, discovering the country’s breathtaking landscapes while rediscovering life’s purpose and moments that matter.

A story of friendship that brings to light conversations around vulnerability, connection and finding balance. Along the Way poses the question “are we doing enough?”, while finding answers through deep conversation about fulfillment and leaning on the relationships that matter most.


For the last 10 years, Garrett King, aka “shortstache” has taken his unique approach to storytelling, and passion for color theory, design, and photography to build a highly engaged global audience and formidable personal brand.

In his first feature short film, he invites audiences to join in on a journey of connection, importance of friendship, and navigating life’s ups, downs, and everything in between. This film not only celebrates a prominent adventure for Garrett, but an exciting new achievement in his film career, signifying what is to come for the shortstache brand.

Garrett is joined by his friends and prominent filmmakers + creators, RJ Bruni, Cas Sheridan, and Adrian Narvaez. Together, this crew and their individual expertise bring a special creative perspective to the film, and most importantly, outlook on life and noteworthy moments along the way.
