Logan Smalley was born in Ithaca, New York, and grew up in Athens, Georgia. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia in 2006 with a degree in Special Education. Darius Goes West: The
Roll of His Life is his first feature film. At 13, Logan was volunteering at Project REACH, a summer camp for children with special needs, when
he first met Darius Weems. At the time, Darius was still fully mobile—”shooting baskets with a pretty good lay-up for a five-year-old.” Since then, the two have kept in close touch, going to movies, playing video
games and watching TV together.
In fact, it was while watching the MTV’s automotive makeover show, “Pimp My Ride,” that Logan came up with an idea: If they could spruce up old vans and beat-up cars, why not Darius’s wheelchair? During Logan’s 8-year affiliation with Project REACH and while serving as a long-term substitute teacher at Clarke Central High School, he created and directed several video vignettes involving children with special needs. In 2004, Logan completed a 12-week study abroad program through the University of Georgia at the Cannes Film Festival. Logan plays piano, harmonica and the musical saw. He composed the music for Darius Goes West: The Roll of His Life.
