Life In H.D: “It’s Hard Being The Last Samurai”

The original idea for this began as a random fifteen second video for Instagram. It then developed into a random set of videos after a game of ‘RISK’ between myself, my nephew and a friend.

Excluding the Bruce Lee segments, all the footage was recorded using an iphone 5. The sequencing and production was also done on the smart phone.

It may not win awards for cinematographic excellence, BUT it’s a win when it’s measured against making my kids laugh so hard that it inspires them to utilize creativity and match that with laughter.

One of the best homeschool lessons we can offer our kids is in teaching them the importance of knowing when to take themselves seriously, and when not to. What better to do this than to lighten up and set the example?

As Solomon wrote, ‘a joyful heart is good medicine’ (Prov. 17:22) and ‘a glad heart makes a cheerful face’ (Prov. 15:13)
