The Story Behind This Video

I have been thinking a lot about storytelling lately. This is a skill that I want to actively work to improve upon for the rest of my life. It is a uniquely human skill and the tool I want to use to leave a legacy.

I am working on this goal in two mediums, writing and video. Luckily, writing is what provides the power behind video so these two endeavors have a lot of overlap. The immediate plan is to take some of my favorite blog posts and convert them into short videos like the one above. Eventually, I want to get me out of the videos and highlight other people’s amazing stories.

I have a vision for how I want to share life list stories. This blog is part of that but ultimately I want to tell stories through episodic videos. The video above is the closest I have gotten to achieving this vision thus far. It is still too amateurish and really only 1% of what I am trying to create but it is progress nonetheless. As such, I’d love to get all of your feedback.

What do you think of this approach?

What can I do better?


P.S. For those wondering about my six pack status, so far, so good! I have been following my diet and exercise routine without issue for three weeks now. I will give a more comprehensive view next week.
