I’m fine, thanks

I was recently featured in a documentary called I’m Fine, Thanks. Fueled by a successful Kickstarter project, Adam, Grant, and their team hit the road on a journey across America to film the stories of a few people with stories to tell.

It’s hard to grasp how much was filmed, edited, and shipped on time, but the final render of the film was exported at 3pm on the day of its initial screening in Portland at WDS. I was fortunate enough to be there for the screening, and I’m incredibly proud to have been involved in such a powerful project.

What’s it about?

I’m Fine, Thanks is a new, feature-length documentary about complacency. It’s a collection of stories about life, the choices we all make, and the paths we ultimately decide to follow.

We examine the factors that motivate and drive our major life choices. And, most importantly, whether or not the path we follow through life – and the habits we form based on that path – are truly connected with who we really are as individuals.

This is a movie about the moment people realize the life they’re living is not the life that’s true to their heart… and, as a result, what they decide to do about it!

To me, it represents the story of my generation: a falling away of dated advice about careers, and the emergence of a new order. The story is one that needs to be told, and it’s a topic that’s close to my heart.

The video will be available soon (this month) and available for a few bucks. I hope you’ll take a look.
