Write of Passage Spotlight Film Winner

Every so often, somebody comes along in your internet experience and simply creates a magical sort of idea that you find is resonating with you. And so it is with this short movie.

The 168 Film Festival showcases films that have been created start to finish in 168 hours, or 1 week. That is not a lot of time and the producers have to really move along smartly so to speak in order to get any kid of quality at all. it is quite a feat. Those long movies that are the subjects of all those award shows take years to create. All the movies for this festival were made in a single week.

And while I can't speak for all of them, this year's winner in the Write of Passage Spotlight Film category is pretty amazing. The producer is Doug Braddock, the director is Steve Murray. The film is shot in Auckland, New Zealand and only runs about 11 minutes long. But its an intense 11 minutes.

Take a few minutes to watch the movie, it is well worth it. It has a theme consistent with what we talk about here on A Life of Light. Which is cool.

      Hi Marty,

      It is a very cool movie. I rarely watch videos online either, but this one I was really called to to watch, and I really enjoyed it. The idea of seeing yourself as you really are is very, very powerful. :-)

    Wonderful inspiring movie! This movie shows the phase that each one of us pass through in our lives. It makes us come face to face to the reality that “WE” ourselves can change our lives or can destroy it. Motivational quotes do help but such videos inspire you to take a step to change your life right NOW!

      It is a great movie and brings home that point about being the person we really are in a very effective way in only 11 minutes. I am glad you liked it. :-)

      This is a great little movie. It was one of those things that just worked out. The director/producer used to be in our group and I watched his movie and realized it would be perfect for featuring on ALifeOfLight. The transformation process is just so simple and so easy if we just let it be that way.

      Most of our troubles with transforming come not so much from from wanting to be different but with the perceived need we have to hold onto what we already are. Once we can see that it is OK to let go of things that do not serve us, it is amazing how light and easy our changes and our growth become. :-)

    I’m a bit older and waited for a long time to have my children – my two young daughters. Before kids, I used to go to the movies at least two times a week. Now, I almost never head out to the theater to catch a first-run movie. I do, however, get to attend a couple of film festivals each year.

    And it’s actually OK because I wouldn’t trade my life with my girls for anything. I do find that I like watching some movies online now, and that has been a great boon for me. Kind of like the best of both worlds.

      Hi Kristie,

      This film was a pretty good one. I like shorts and actually live in Palm Springs where they hold a big short festival each year. This little film I enjoyed online. :-)
