“When you get to that 19-mile mark, and you know you got seven miles, and you think about that – man, that’s gonna haunt you, that’s gonna tear you down. But you got to put that aside, and just go. You gotta grind it out, cuz life ain’t nothing but a grind, man.” Johnnie Jameson is a Legacy Runner, who just completed his 30th consecutive race in the L.A. Marathon. This Vietnam War veteran, who enjoys his work with the U.S. Postal Service because he gets the chance to serve others, finds healing in the power of running. His story is an inspiration.

“When you high-line often, you really learn to train your fear like a muscle.” Faith Dickey is a professional slackliner. What does that mean, exactly? Well, she likes to tightrope across some incredibly high places with nothing other than a line and her own two feet! We got a little dizzy just looking at it. Faith has learned to master her fear and adrenaline — something that we can all aim for! Footage: Faith Dickey and Chloe Roux-Mollard Produced by: Great Big Story

Lunch Atop a Skyscraper // by Éamonn Ó Cualáin
April 26, 2017 by Adam Brewer in Inspiration 0 Comments

“Their attitude, I think, their casualness, the indifference to the risk that they’re taking, is what separates the photograph.” Sadly, we may never know the identities of these “men at lunch” 800 feet above the ground in Manhattan. But this iconic photograph perfectly captures the pioneer spirit driving the vertical expansion of New York City in 1932, and portrays the courage and pride that these eleven immigrants exhibit in their work. Executive Producer: Kira Pollack Director: Éamonn Ó Cualáin Producer: Paul Moakley Editor: Conal de Cléir Coordinating Producer: Tara Johnson

Being Batman // by Ryan Freeman
April 26, 2017 by Adam Brewer in Inspiration 0 Comments

“There is a feeling that exudes from inside of me. I allow myself to be free.” For this man, true freedom comes with stepping into the shoes of Bruce Wayne. The synchronicity that he feels with Batman causes him to don the mask and cape, and become who he really is. This short work by Ryan Freeman is an intriguing look behind that mask. Director and Music: Ryan Freeman Producer: Lossless Creative Drone and Camera Assistant: Nick Freeman
