Getting Yourself Out There

I have met a lot of great people. Many of them, while being truly brilliant at something, have a hard time understanding their potential. It is sad to see them just drift away wherever life takes them and not take a step of their own. Are you like that? Do you ever stop yourself from going out, meeting people, starting photography or videography projects? While no one can change that but you, I think a little bit of inspiration can go a long way.

This is a short film by three student, who, as they say, did not care about nature, and then decided to do something about it. And they did. While the attention this project received is quite amazing – their website has been visited by over 900 thousand people already – it’s not even the idea that I found most inspiring. This film was made by three students, and while I am quite certain they did not have a million dollar budget, they sure found a way to unleash their creativity, something we all have an unlimited amount of. Do you still think there is something you cannot do?

Get out there. Take your camera and shoot. Make a film. Stop drifting, stop wasting your time. Stop thinking you can’t. Not tomorrow, not in a year – now, whatever it is, whatever you dream about.

There is no better way of doing what you love than simply doing what you love.

      I find it that it’s often very hard to make a person really think about something important without stating it in a very strong way. We change because of strong emotions and experience, to the better or the worse. I’m quite sure this short film has changed a few people to the better. I really hope so.

      You are very welcome. I’ve got something else, now that you mention age. :) Don’t ever think about how old you are. Ever. By all means, it’s a good thing.

      Amazing quality but truthfully, as someone who has always been active in the outdoors and lived in the Western US, in rural areas…I couldn’t get past why you would paint spots on a elk calf and expect me to believe it’s a young spotted whitetail deer. Just sayin’…
