Hi everyone, here are my best links and finds from the past 2 weeks. Sorry for the delay but it’s been quite mad around here with many online speaking gigs, and all the preparations for my next short film ‘The Good Future’ which will be shot in Lanzarote, Canary Islands, next months. See below for the amazing scenery we will be featuring in this film about what a ‘good future’ is, and how we can best create it.
Thanks for reading my stuff, stay well and safe, and keep up the hope in these difficult times! The Future is better than we think.
