Standing On Earth is a shoe vlog and documentary I created while living in the Bay Area. It features people in different neighborhoods of the Bay, who share their stories and thoughts behind their shoes, fashion, and life. Created circa 2012
Role: Founder / Director / Producer
I was blessed to work with inspiring people in this project. Some of the stories were spontaneous, some were planned, but all were from the heart. Throughout the process, I learned that spontaneity is often more authentic than something planned and rehearsed. Authenticity is what I wanted to capture, more so than perfection.
Standing On Earth represents individual style. How one views themself and the world around them. How one stands on Earth.
It’s about sneakers, but also about people from all walks of life sharing their unique life experiences. My hope is that people can learn something new from the stories told.
The project was created out of my love for shoes and storytelling. It started as my thesis project in 2012, which I plan to revisit and expand into new locations. The videos shown were a small portion of the stories from the website. Stay tuned at: standingonearth.com
