Hey Life Lapsers,
I wanted to take a moment and share an exciting milestone that Life Lapse has reached. If you follow along on social media, you probably already heard the news. In case you missed it, Life Lapse is going on Dragons Den (the Canadian equivalent to Shark Tank)! The photo attached from my recent travels sums up how I'm feeling.
This is truly a full circle moment for me. I started my filmmaking career in the CBC building just over 10 years ago now, it’s where the Toronto School had their studios & classrooms. Tomorrow I’ll be revisiting the CBC and this time and this time, not as a student *dramatic, much? haha*. I’ll be showcasing Life Lapse and asking the Dragons for an investment to take Life Lapse to the next level. There is no guaranteed my episode will air, however, I promise as soon I know if it’ll be on TV or not, you’ll know too. :)
Besides being nervous and feeling extremely vulnerable to have all my information about my business out in the open, I am excited more than anything. Doing my first official pitch with potential investors on camera should be a tad of an adrenaline rush. At least it’s not live TV, LOL. A quote I like to live by is “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” by Neale Donald Walsch. Starting this business has forced me to pushed myself out of my comfort zone more in the past year than I have my entire life and the rewards from doing so have been priceless.
So what does this mean for the Life Lapse community exactly?! Well, hopefully an investment from Dragons so the team can build out features you’ve all been requesting. It will also allow me pursue a new direction that I want to take with the company, which you will learn about soon. Worst case scenario, if I don’t get a deal, it will be an awesome experience and great exposure for Life Lapse.
I won’t be able to say much after I film. However, I’ll be posting behind the scenes clips on instagram stories tomorrow & you can follow along at @LifeLapse_App.
Wish me Luck & thanks for your continued support!
