What if you had an extra day?  What would you do?  What would you do if you had an extra hour in the day?  FB reminded me of this video from a year ago.  I tried to find it on this blog.  Love videos that make you think like this one.

What would you do?  Would you do more?  Would you do less on that day?  Would you spend it alone or would you try and connect with people you don’t talk to or keep it for the people really close to you?

Very interesting little film.

Sometime in 2012, I discovered a passion for filmmaking after watching Casey Neistat’s ‘Make It Count.’ In the summer of 2013, tired of my current path, I went out to pursue that passion. Not having any experience or any idea of where to begin, I naturally had a lot of questions. These would serve as the basis for my first documentary.

This was my first serious attempt at filmmaking. A friend mentioned Kickstarter to me, so I launched one (kickstarter.com/projects/1407449306/makedo-documentary) and it got funded—then it began.

On July 1, 2013 I packed up the car with my camera gear and spent the next 3 months driving around the U.S. as a one-man crew, interviewing all sorts of creative people. Some were friends, some were family, and many were strangers. The doc road trip took me from San Diego to New Orleans, from NYC to Missoula, from Seattle to LA, and everywhere in between.

Initially, I wanted to get a concrete answer to questions like, “What do people need to do to make it as a professional creative?” In post-production, the story & direction changed a bit, but ultimately, I found the answer—we just need to start. Whatever it is we want to do, just find a way to start doing it asap. Since there are many ways to do things, the path we start on may look unorthodox, but it doesn’t matter as long as we move in the direction of what we want.

A huge thanks to all my Kickstarter backers, friends & family, and of course, everyone who shared their stories with me. So many people opened up their homes and lives to me without ever meeting me beforehand. It was truly a great feeling to experience such a genuine connection with people I met for the first time.

 

 

From me…

I need to get a better camera, laptop and something like “final cut pro” and start documenting more and making films… or just simply documenting life.  Right now it’s with a iPod and iMovie that is inside the iPod.

Love Casey.  This is a cool little doc.
