Into the Deep

Dig deep enough and anything becomes interesting.

The TV show Seinfeld was a show about nothing. But it succeeded because it made the ridiculous and trifling matter. It attached comedy to the banality of everyday life.

Humans of New York also succeeds because it focuses on the stories of everyday people and things. It gets ordinary people to reveal their deepest griefs and appreciations. The images also speak a thousand words.

The deeper you go, the better story you can tell. People relate to the details. The smaller the details, the bigger the emotion.
