*Long sigh*...How do I begin explaining this one?
Well, I have a good friend by the name of Nima.
And the first thing to know about Nima is that he is always on the move. Moving apartments, moving countries--you name it. He's moved to and from San Francisco three or four times, and each time he insists on throwing "going away" and "welcome back" parties.
But when Nima accepted a new role in Miami, he was convinced this time he was moving for good (which probably only means a couple years in Nima language). Regardless, we thought we'd see him out in royal fashion.
I pitched four of our closest friends on surprising Nima with a music video made in his honor. Nima was totally blown away when we sent him this finished product....and threatened to move back and forth once more so we'd be forced to make another.
This video made its way around our social circles and beyond, viewed over 5,000 times (not disclosing how many of those were me). Because of the video, I was contacted by a venture-backed startup to do a product introduction video for them (though the opportunity ended up falling through).
