I stumbled into the Small House Movement by accident of location- my parents live within miles of the tiny house poster boy Jay Shafer and his 89 square foot home-, but within a couple of years I had become a part of it as one of the few, and perhaps only, videographers documenting small shelters on a regular basis. When I first interviewed Shafer, he was one of just a handful of "Tiny House People" visible to the press. In the past 3 years I've helped turn a handful of inhabitants of small shelters into micro-celebrities (currently, 5 of my tiny home videos have over 1 million views; a couple have more than 3 million).

After filming hundreds of hours of tape, I am now telling my version on the tiny house story in the forth-coming documentary We the Tiny House People (Release date: April 23, 2012). I'm reluctant to claim there's some sort of magic in small abodes- I'm sure some people are watching simply for the "house porn" (as Shafer describes it)-, but it's obvious these stripped-down shelters reveal for us the essence of home, and for many, make it a bit easier to "suck the marrow out of life".
