I just completed the second shoot for the film, spending a couple of balmy days in Los Angeles capturing the story of another inspiring adult unschooler who throughout his life has followed his passion and is currently in a career that allows him to continue doing what he loves doing best. He’s an amazingly creative person and meeting him and hearing his story was particularly fun for me personally as we have a lot in common and share very similar passions and interests. Needless to say, a large amount of time between our interviews and capturing other footage was spent talking shop and trading creative ideas.
I think it’s safe to say we inspired each other.
Next month, I’m headed to the East Coast for interviews with a couple more adult unschoolers but in addition, I’m also going to be spending time with the founder of an organization that offers incredible alternative educational opportunities for young people of high school age. The motto on their website says:
“If you choose to leave school, you can go to college, find meaningful work, fulfill your dreams and have a great life. Learning is natural, school is optional”
It’s going to be a really interesting trip and I’m excited to learn more about what they do and see firsthand the results of their program.
Thanks for all your support, and for following along
