Hi, I’m Zach and this is my project.
One day I decided I wanted to film a bunch of people being happy for me. Real, genuine smiles. Everyday you go on social media and see negativity in some sort of way so I kind’ve wanted to break the day to day negativity down with something extremely happy and positive. You also see people claiming life is about spending money and traveling to be happy, but I think you can find happiness right in your backyard.
The idea started with filming a few people but snowballed into filming over 40 different people all smiling and doing something they love to do. My project still needs more people so I’m hoping to finish the project in 2017 but need help, I just moved from Massachusetts to New York City and don’t really know anyone here. Thankfully ‘Dear Hope’ said they could help me by sharing this project, so reach out!
I don’t bite. Come say hi and check out some of my work! I love meeting new people and guarantee we can have some smiles.
Be on the lookout for Zach’s full project early next year back here on Dear Hope.
Always remember you are not alone.
You are loved.
