We always enjoy working with the Vancouver Theatre Company, Realwheels, and one of their latest quests has been particularly fun for us. A short while ago we launched a campaign with them to find out the different things that make people happy. This was done in collaboration with OneStory, the video interview App. Realwheels was curious to know how different people define their identity regardless of physicality by showcasing the universal concept of happiness and obstacles.
OneStory has proven to be the perfect place to collect people’s thoughts. You can see what is there so far by visiting the OneStory site. The different ideas of happiness are simple and inspiring, and everyone’s honesty with regards to obstacles is sincere and refreshing. Here I am getting in on the action:
We’d like to know your story and have you add your voice to this project. Interview your friends while you’re at it. After all, someone has to hold your iPhone to interview you, why not turn it around on them? There are two questions we’d like you to answer, that will then be stitched together to form a seamless spot.
1. What is your name and what makes you happy?
2. Is there an obstacle to that happiness?
To do this you simply need to download the OneStory App for free on your iPhone or iPad. Once you open the App you will see different categories of interviews. Feel free to give a listen, people have some really interesting things to say! Our topic is found within the Featured interview topics, as well as within the Health related topics.
When you are ready to record your interview click on the red record button with an image of a camera on it in the top right corner of the screen. Scroll down and select ‘What Makes You Happy?’ Press Next in the top right corner and then enter the name of the person who will be speaking. Press Next again and then press the button that says ‘Record Answer’ when you are ready to answer the first prompt.
Share your story through your feeds using #WheelVoices and enjoy being a part of the Realwheels community where everyone has a story and everyone has a voice.
