I’m in the habit of waiting until Beloved goes to bed, then watching videos on YouTube to try and find blog fodder. When I cam across the Green Renaissance YouTube channel, I didn’t expect much. Boy, was I wrong.
Green Renaissance is a South African production company that makes short documentary films meant to soothe and inform and entertain you. They’ve certainly reached their goals with me! Headed by young filmmakers Michael Raimondo and Justine du Toit, the films are about kindness and happiness and peace and inner beauty, and I think they’re just what I need right now.
“We are a small, passionate team of creatives on a journey to inspire change. For many years, we have dreamed of dedicating our time and energy to filming and capturing beautiful and meaningful stories. Please help us make this happen…”– About Green Renaissance
Each of their films is about 8-10 minutes long, and they somehow manage to produce one every couple of weeks. It’s an amazing undertaking; I can’t even imagine how much work it must be. Yet with all that frenetic activity, their films still manage to retain their thoughtfulness and their signature sweetness. Such talent!
