(Human Postcards) NEW ZEALAND | Paul, the captain of a fishing boat, tells us about the adventurous life of a fisherman. His 25 years in the industry, 16 of which were at sea remind us of the world described in Melvilles’s novel, Moby Dick. Yet, this is just the normal life of a captain at sea in the 21st century.

About Human Postcards
Human Postcards is an ongoing series of 60 second video portraits, capturing the inspirational and often powerful messages of everyday people from around the world.
“Since starting in 2015, we have produced over 150 unique postcards in multiple countries. Each postcard is one minute long and focuses on a single idea or aspect of a person’s life.”
“The idea came in 2014 while we were working in London. Every day we walked along Oxford Circus and saw a man in a human billboard costume advertising a golf store. We wondered what he was thinking as he stood there being passed by thousands of people, and if we could capture his story in a format which all of these busy people could enjoy, to change their perception of him.”
“As we started to film, we realised that the project was growing to be more than something about unnoticed people, and that everyone has stories, lessons, and dreams to pass on.”
