WARNING: This film is themed on a potentially challenging subject. Some may find it's message highly challenging or even upsetting. If you find yourself in a 'fragile' frame of mind at this time - this may not be the right time for you to watch this film. Please reconsider. And please don't watch it if films about mortality and the ephemeral nature of life may upset you?
It is NOT the intention of the artists in this film to anger, threaten, or upset anyone.
The film is intended entirely as an inspirational piece of art. Apologies if you find the content inappropriate or upsetting.
Now, about the film: There's a lot of interest at the moment on the subject of bucket-lists. This could be considered a 'bucket-list' type film? Or maybe just a film about life and living. Some have called it a 'how-to' film about life.
I asked 100 people ONE question; the same question. Some thought it was a deep question; others thought it was obvious. Many didn't know or hadn't given it any thought. Some thought about it a lot and almost suggested they lived their lives with it in mind.
It seems such a simple question. Basic. Even fundamental?
But I've been surprised by the answers I get.
And the last statement in the film is a result of a few of the answers, that inspired me to make this film. A film of the actual interviews will follow (soon - I hope)...
ONE thing is a film that tries to begin to explore concepts such as "Who am I?"; "What is real?"; and most of all "What matters most to me?".
WIPfilmz is interested in each person's personal development and so, ultimately, the evolution of humanity as a species.
If this were a "how to" film it would be a "how to" about life, freedom, emancipation, true expression and the fundamentals of being human. Or rather, maybe a "how to film" about "how to" find that out for yourself...
The film of the actual interviews - I hope to follow with that soon. It'll appear here too (on this channel)
I also want to do the highlights of some of the responses I got. Some could be a whole film in themselves....?
More to come... is what I'm trying to say. Given a bit of time.
