"I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours" -Henry David Thoreau

Lucas Longacre - Filmmaker

"With any success, you get that feeling of 'Now what?', and it's debilitating. But that 'Now what?' is gonna be with you for the rest of your life." 

What happens when you get everything you were looking for? 

Even deeper, what happens when you get your dream job, and find it wasn't what you imagined? 

Lucas' story brings a dose of reality to the term "dream job". In his career, he got both of those - the thing he always wanted to do, and the job he always wanted - but, in their own ways, neither were enough.

Encouragingly, it's all led to where he is now: telling stories that mean the most to him and that feed him in ways he didn't think they could.
