We had the idea of producing a story about the concept of mindfulness; the art of focusing on the moment. An important skill to keeping in your lane in life and accomplishing one’s goals in life by being able to harness all the energy for the present moment.
The intention was always to produce a great original short story to be featured on “Super Soul Sundays” on The Oprah Winfrey Show Network (OWN). We believe that this program has key principles in life that are building blocks for a successful attitude, which can then lead to a productive and efficient lifestyle.
In terms of the project, we traveled to the island of Koh Samui in Thailand to share an adventure towards mindfulness with George Anthony who loves being in nature and most importantly embraces the present moment. Being in the present state is where he strives to be, harnessing the power of “now”, to be aware of his environment and to enjoy the wonderful grandness of life! George is passionate about serving others.
This project was shot over 8 days at various locations on the island. We wanted to capture the journey of finding that quiet time to discover the grandness of life and the spiritual awakening that comes with it.
