An inspirational short film series about people with typical day jobs

but some unexpected passion outside of work that they live for.




By day they are your co-workers and servers. By night they are rockstars in their own domain. A 76-year-old farmer who tears it up at the local speedway. A piercer in a tattoo parlor who rocks the Roller Derby circuit. An assembly line worker who dominates at underground hip hop dance battles. Their goal is not to “make it” but simply to have a few moments in a week where they can leave their other lives behind, bring time to a standstill, and do what they love.

Each mini-episode dives into the life of a different character and a different subculture, contrasting the two aspects of their lives, and exploring both the 'what' of their unusual pursuit and most importantly the 'why'. In a society driven by money why would they spend countless hours on an obsession with no obvious payoff?

As we work longer and longer hours, too many of us have passions postponed, delayed, and forgotten. Yet research show that serious pastimes recharge our bodies and minds, alleviate stress, boost creativity, promote long term happiness, and in turn energize every aspect of our lives. More than a series, this is a movement to inspire people  to dig their own pastimes out of the closet or pick up new ones and live richer, more engaged lives. #findyourshine
