GM is the man. Always an inspiration.
“Insist upon yourself. In the early 1900s, outdoor pioneer Millican Dalton quit his conventional 9-5 routine in London to pursue a life in the open in Borrowdale Valley, in the English Lake District. He lived life in his own way, chasing romance and freedom from his cave on Castle Crag. Millican Dalton chose experience over material gain and inspired us to do the same. We are a small team, based on a farm in the English Lake District National Park and we make bags with a difference. We made this film to share the story that changed our journey for good.” – http://www.homeofmillican.com

Virginia Wolf has long been one of my fave writers, and as a big fan of ‘The School of Life’, I was pretty stoked to see them feature her in this engaging video portrait! “Virginia Woolf captured the intimate moments of the 20th century like no one else. She opens our eyes to the neglected value of daily experiences”. – The School of Life
Adore this project!
“Harold’s Planet started as a part-time project in London in 1996. Because we believed in Harold, we decided to give up our jobs and see if we could make it work full-time. We moved to a pin-prick Indian Ocean island in the Seychelles (becoming its 53rd and 54th inhabitants), Ile au Cerf, a thousand miles off the coast of Kenya. It was there, in a ramshackle house, open to the elements, that Harold came to life; Bobbly-nosed, soft-footed, gentle and curious. Up mountains that scratched the clouds, through a sea of faces, via London, Paris, Cape Town, the Kalahari, Maui and Northern California, (red wine, fires and wind being the common threads) Harold has led us. Since our first steps into the unknown with Harold ninetten years ago, he has become known to millions of people. Through cards, books, weekly newspaper appearances, on TV and of course via the internet and daily e-mailouts, Harold has touched people’s hearts all over the world. Come and visit Harold’s Planet – you don’t need a visa. You might need a toaster. If you’re lucky you might spot some flying grannies, see the Grisbium Dawn chorus, or even a Snerd drifting through the moonlight.” – Lisa Swerling & Ralph Lazar, Marin County, California, 2015

“Ben Moon is a Portland, Oregon-based photographer and cinematographer who enjoys working with a diverse range of adventurers, athletes and musicians. Surviving cancer earlier in life inspired a greater connection and appreciation for others and the natural world. Ben finds human emotion to be a source of constant fascination, and is just as comfortable hanging from a rock face or swimming through heavy surf, as he is filming a musician in the studio or on-stage.”
