Video is the defining media of our generation. With a powerful "witnessing" filming approach, use video to its full potential where distance disolves in all its senses.
Dedicated to the boundaries of where the arts and civic discourse / collective sensemaking come together.
"I'm on a journey. Trying to make sense between soul and shadow. Getting out of my head. Seeing in new ways. Dropping into my heart. Feeling in new ways. Unlearning, to arrive at states of naked, fearful innocence. Fascinated by how our path to a greater collective consciousness might emerge from a radical witnessing of our intimate, interior truths."
- John Oliver
Further details and video on my journey and purpose can be found here.
Interior Truth is the filming and editing service by John Oliver using an ultra minimalist approach, filmed from a place of silent witnessing (e.g. there are no "interview" type questions, or expectations on content outcomes), that opens the door to a deeper inner connection and authentic transmission.
Warning! ...Watch only when free from distractions and with headphones.
Treat yourself to the silence and space to connect to what these people are courageously sharing.
The art of silent witnessing
A compilation of the moments of silence shared while filming is in the video below: The perfect way to get a taste of what it is like to sit in front of a camera in this witnessing space.
Watch the video below free from distractions and with headphones.

Moments for internal dialogue are rare. There is no cheating because the intimacy reveal's one's truth. The simple fact of John's presence helps finds the thread and coherence of one's invisible, personal mess. It reminds me of the alchemist, who purifies and purifies until you find your quintessence - one's trembling, smiling and strong substance that is only accessed in intimacy and confidence
I was not prepared at all for the depth of result...it takes somebody who is interested and cares about what you have to say, yet has a fresh perspective. I so appreciate this. It was like a lightbulb going on, to have my thoughts captured and curated through the editing. Fabulous experience, I'd recommend this to anyone.
It's a gift.
Now I understand the need for silence...silence isn't not doing anything, it's not saying anything.
Yet from the silence the real is revealed, the reasoning and source behind our work. It is moments like this that touch our ultimate truths.
The free form of interviewing allowed me to skip the obligatory interview questions and target other themes, opening ways to explore new trains of thought.
I loved the post-production interaction when John showed himself extremely apt in adjusting the video to both our visions. A great experience and end result. Stoked!
