"Sometimes subtlety is great. Sometimes the opposite is also great, as in the case with 'I Want Life' -- an inspirational monologue performed over kinetically-edited imagery, inspired by the music video for We Are The City's 'Get Happy.'"
Featuring the song 'Baptism' by We Are The City, and actor Anthony Martens.
"I want a life that moves with courage to break boundaries of words and thought. Life not sabotaged by comfort or drowning In distraction. I want a magnum opus; happy tears, open arms and shrieks of joy that bubble up from a heart saturated with love like heavy steam.
I want to jump from a thousand heights, to stare up at a thousand starry skies, to explore the world and find myself. I want life that’s soaked in the forgotten energy of ambition, a life that strives for greatness, that rises to the challenge when muscles are aching and bravery is scarce… I want life that screams into the dead of night, ‘I will not be overcome,’ life born anew each day like the sunrise.
I want a life that stirs others to wake and behold a world not dark and weary under the strain of a thousand sunsets, but is slowly filling with glory like the beams of the first sunrise in a wintery land that has forgotten the warm touch of light.
I want life."
