JP Auclair Street Segment (from All.I.Can.) from Sherpas Cinema on Vimeo.

Just a short note to say that I am so inspired by this video that I discovered through following @kevinguenther on Twitter.

November 2, 2011 marked the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s 75th birthday, and because of that, Canada’s national public radio and television broadcaster (the CBC) is the subject of my latest ‘Inspired by’ blog post — specifically, CBC Radio.

My ‘Inspired By’ posts will include people or companies that inspire me creatively (like photographers, designers, artists, writers, musicians, design studios, agencies, etc.), the simple things in life that I run across and take a moment to appreciate, the people and organizations that I see doing good things, the wise souls that I’ve learned something from and so on.
