Sammy's Simple Solutions

Whilst I absolutely love creating each new episode of my Moving Timelapse Diary, these take a least three days of dedicated editing and voice-over recording.  Some have taken me as long as a week to edit, as I simply have so much video footage & time-lapse to choose from.

After learning recently that the best way to build one's audience is to post regular films on Youtube, I knew exactly what I had to do.  For six months I enjoyed the feeling of knowing that this series was coming to me.  I have plenty of thoughts I would love to share with the world in simple, 'one take' video clips.  However, I didn't have any idea how in my busy schedule I would be able to fit this in.

But as is the way with the Law of Attraction, my moment has arrived in the form of an unexpected opportunity.  Sabrina & Esteban are away in France for five weeks leaving me completely undistracted to focus not only on my corporate work but also on shooting and editing at least 30 episodes of my new series in this period.  Each film takes no more than a few hours to shoot and edit. 

It is my intention to educate, inspire and entertain.   Please feel free to ask me any questions on the many varied subjects I will be discussing. 

So with out further ado, I present to you now the first three episodes of Sammy's Simple Solutions.

My 40th Birthday on the Gili Islands

My little family & I recently spent 4 days on the Gili Islands to celebrate my 40th Birthday (23rd May).  These 3 islands off the coast of Lombok are very small and have no cars or motorbikes...only bicycles & horse drawn carts.  My kind of place!  Here you can see the three of us catching the sunrise together.

On the morning of my fifth decade in this physical body I felt slightly different as I performed my usual sun-gazing routine.  And a poem came to me.  Then a whole bunch of enthusiasm and fun... thankfully I took with me my fire-staff, my time-lapse kit, my drone (DJI Inspire 1), my Gopro and my Canon DSLR....  I didn't have a waterproof cover for my Gopro but was able to manifest this easily enough once I was on the beach :)

The energy of my experience there was still so strong upon my return to 'home' in Bali, I simply had to sit down and edit my footage and feelings into a short film immediately.  And this is the result.

After making this film I remembered how much I want to help others learn about the Law of Attraction.  So, I have now updated the how to travel the world forever like us page and my firm intention is that my focused energy here will help others achieve their dreams.
