As creatives, I feel like our job is to document, recreate, view and react to the beauty, darkness, suffering, joy, pain and ecstasy that surrounds us at all times. I often feel like I’m an anthropologist studying the world as my father did before me. My output method is just slightly different. On this, the anniversary of his passing, I dedicate this post to him and the beauty in the world around us.
Sorry to get all hippie dippy.

Why we made this film:
The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world…
…so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it’s unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.
