40th Birthday poem/time-lapse film - how I have achieved this great life I live now?

in dtube •  2 years ago  (edited)

A mix of time-lapse, drone, video diary, underwater footage & poetry.

► Watch on DTube
► Watch Source (IPFS)

This is a film I felt inspired to make from the footage I shot on the day of my 40th birthday.


The poem came to me when I was sungazing in the morning.

Editing it was simple, fast and instinctive.


Hope you enjoy!

It is a very special film for me at an important turning point in my life.

Here it is on YouTube if you don't fancy clicking over to DTube.

Awesome poem and brilliant video. Thanks for sharing @samstonehilltube. I love it how you present the poem in the form of a video. It adds so much more to it. Please do more.

I also happen to agree with everything in the poem which is great as well. There certainly is a better way than the hustle and bustle of living the 9 to 5, well actually probably more like 8 to 6 plus lots of travelling on crowded buses and trains.


Thanks so much for your super supportive words. They really mean a lot to me :)

The way we live now is pretty special. Currently in Bali. Off to Kuala Lumpur today. Thailand next month...

Happy days! ;)

That was quite a beauty! 😍


Thanks very much! Appreciate you watching it ;)
