Adventure is not something left to the dreams of children; it's in all of us

"Our primal instinct is to explore. It's in the exploration that we can find joy and discover not the world, but ourselves changing and adapting to become stronger, brighter, more joyful and more soulful beings." - Rob Lutten, "A Ride Reborn"

Inspired by a story of a man who cycled the world, Rob Lutter left his home in England - his struggles with OCD and exhaustive search for creative endeavors - and embarked on the open road where he discovered that exploration, adventure and discovery are the key elements to discovering himself.

Captivated by Rob's photography and writings, Director Edwin Lee told himself that he needed to meet with Rob once he reached Hong Kong.  The result is this beautiful short film created on zero budget with the help of friends.

Let's continue to build upon this manifesto, this inspiration, and discover other stories that can help both young and old discover their creative confidence.

"To not dream, to not seek happiness, or knowledge or new discoveries is an insult to ourselves and to where we come from." - Rob Lutten
