I’ve been wanting to watch this film for quite some time but didn’t have the money to buy it (even though it is only $10 measly!). The filmmakers updated their Facebook page today. Turns out the movie is streaming for free on Hulu until August 31.
It is basically a short film about some guys and gals in advertising (high earners) who got laid off and how they decided to turn this negative event into a positive event. What they chose to do with their new free time runs the gamut from filmmaker to coffee bean roaster and is inspiring.
Now, I don’t know if this is just another example of people who have money in the bank being able to follow their dreams, but I do believe life gives you plenty of opportunities to do what you love. Not everyone has something they feel they were born to do, but if you do, why not use this down time (if you’ve been laid off) to pursue being that stay-at-home dad or prodigy guitarist. This is your life. Do with it what you will.
