I am so excited to share this studio news with you. Like, SO, so, so excited. Over the past few days , my studio has been full of giant cameras, sliders, microphones, tripods, lighting… and it has been pretty darn exciting!
Matt Ayers & Sam Windell, two insanely talented videographers and storytellers, devoted their time and creativity to telling my story and I could not be more honored. They are part of the The Traveling Storytellers; a highly skilled creative team.
It can be so hard to see “your story” while you are living within it. The beauty in the every-day happenings becomes quickly muddled by the pressures, stress, disorder, and general hussle of life. When I began thinking about this video, I felt as if I had little to show and even less to say, …and yet, so much that I wanted to convey. Life can feel so humble and mundane at times. But it’s not, is it? It’s life! It’s full and vibrant and, when you stop to notice, it is brimming over with meaningful and beautiful moments.
It was overwhelmingly wonderful to see my day-to-day life from Sam & Matt’s point of view. The way they crafted and wove my story left tears in my eyes and so much joy in my heart.
Seeing this video in it’s completion taught me to focus on the meaningful things in life and to fade out the rest. It reminded me, again, that you must work very, very hard to create something beautiful. And that beauty is incredibly powerful and worth fighting for.
Thank you, Matt & Sam, for telling this little bit of my story.
You’ll be hearing a little more from these guys in a couple of weeks (it’s time someone told their story – doncha think!?) but in the meantime, check out the The Traveling Storytellers. Their work will totally inspire you.
And if you need someone to tell your story, they are totally your guys.
