|We’re pleased to revisit this project again after a very busy few months for Amazing Factory, and we had to do something different and special for our first Giants of The Forest episode back. We were very fortunate to have the chance to film the amazing spoken word artist, Shane Koyczan. He made a quick call and the lovely people at the Vogue Theatre allowed us to come in and film it in their beautiful space.
This is a different approach from other episodes. We changed up the style for this one, all in the name of awesome. Shane is an incredibly gifted artist, and usually you’d see him perform these pieces from a stage in front of a crowd. Today we have just him, in an empty theatre, speaking directly to you. The lack of music and sounds, and the immense empty space, makes this feel all the more intimate, and personal. You can’t help but see Shane’s good heart, and his genuine & warm personality when he speaks. Thankful that we got to meet such an incredible dude and artist, and thankful we get to share this with all of you.
Here’s Shane Koyczan, with his poem “More Often Than Sometimes.”
