“We were fed up with making meaningless TV programs so we both decided to quit our jobs. We came up with the idea to travel the world in 365 days and to meet a stranger a day. Every day we shoot a small clip and ask that stranger for their story. I call it ‘the pursuit of humanity’ but Carl thinks that sounds a bit dicky. So far we have traveled to more then 20 countries and shot over 200 docobites.”
“What has been biggest struggle so far?”
“When you have been filming all day long and you post that clip online and it goes completely unnoticed. We don’t like to complain about it because this is the best thing that has ever happened to us but it can be pretty tough sometimes.
’‘What have learned from this journey so far?”
“That whatever your passion or dream is, life doesn’t become easier when you choose to pursue those dreams. In fact it becomes harder because suddenly you do something you actually care about. But In the same time everything you do does become fuller of meaning”

I met Carl and Epiphany about a week ago they stopped by Amsterdam for their project 365 docobites. As an independent blogger/photographer I know how hard it can be to survive sometimes. They shot this clip of me while I was working and I can only say that they did an amazing job. Thank you both so much!

Here is the link of the docobite they made about Humans of Amsterdam:
