  The Story

A family of five breaks free from the status quo and learns how to follow their natural instincts. They find guidance by going inward and going outside. Through interviews and outdoor adventures with a colorful variety of 40 families, they explore and expose the truth about modern-day family life: passion leads to abundance; self-care is essential for success; kids learn best through observation; parents can learn a great deal from their kids… See the film and see for yourself.

  The Answers

Wild Family answers the following questions: 1. How are parents continuing to pursue their passions, even in the thick of parenting? 2. How are parents nurturing their kids’ interests, as they begin to explore the world? 3. How does a connection with nature foster and deepen this relationship to a person’s calling in life? We believe it’s possible for parents to navigate their hearts’ desires while helping their kids to do the same. We believe this film helps show us the way.

  The Filmmakers

During the summer of 2014, our family of five ventured across 26 states on a two-month film tour, where we met a variety of families, interviewed them, and documented our findings. We crafted the stories we recorded into a powerful message of love and lightness, taking the form of a feature-length film about passion and presence in parenting. Our devotion to movie-making and family life combined to create Arise Video Studio, a video production company in Austin, Texas.

  What Qualifies Us To Tell This Story?

As we approach the end of our first year in business, we’re pleased to report we’re still making movies! We have not exactly reached the point of steady work or sustainable income, but we’re extremely proud of all we achieved since we started our adventure as a family-owned business — raising three preschoolers while doing the work we love. After finishing our first film tour, we had the pleasure of working with the world-renowned parenting coach, Carrie Contey, Ph.D., and the world’s greatest yogurt company, Stonyfield, among others. The Austin Parent Entrepreneurs movie series provides big advantages to family-owned businesses like ours. We aim to reveal secrets to success in this startup city, with the goal of creating a sustainable business model, and encouraging the spirit of entrepreneurism. Parents interviewed here will gain terrific business exposure, with the camera expertise of professional documentarians. Audiences will gain new insights from successful family business owners.

  Is It True, Austin Is An Entrepreneur’s Paradise?

According to rankings, Austin is one of the best places to start a new business. Austin ranks among the Top 60 Fastest Growing Economies in the World (USA Today, March 2015), and among the Best Cities for Job Creation in U.S. (TIME, March 2015). The city consistently sits atop Forbes magazine’s annual list of the best cities for jobs and scores highly in other demographics rankings. It is the third-fastest-growing city in the nation, attracting large numbers of college grads, immigrants and families with young children. Aside from the media hype, the reality of the situation is a different story. Regarding quality of life, we know we face a tendency toward low wages and high cost of living. Austin is the #1 Top Spending City for Food & Drink (FlowingData, 2010), for example. Guess that means we place a high value on quality, but it also emphasizes a pain point for families: we’re spending more than we can afford.

  Why Focus On The Performance Arts?

It’s one of the ways we’re following our calling in life. We adore making movies and sharing stories that surprise and inspire us. With this series, we’re focusing on musicians, artists, and others, making powerful, passionate statements through love’s expression—that’s what we’re capturing on camera! Colors go flying when we let the inner rainbows out. In the big picture, we think of Bloom Where You Are Planted as an invitation to pull the petals down and reveal the side of the self that isn’t often shown: The Innermost. When people share this side of themselves, they invite people to witness their love and lightness. This, in turn, invites witnesses to share their love and lightness.
