This is for the doers, the children, the community; the people who silence dogma and endure the path of least resistance.

This is Viewfinder.

Viewfinder is a series of conversational interviews that dismisses the monologued nature of interviews, and instead injects genuine curiosity into an engaging dialogue.

These interviews are a lens into the lives of people who endured through adversity and followed their dreams. Their stories aren't polished, censored, or fabricated. They're real, personal, and motivated with the intent to encourage creativity.
