My random acts of happiness certainly make me happy, but I am beginning to wonder if they have a positive effect on anyone else . I chatted with my friend, Hlee, about researching the nature of happiness, and she suggested we turn happiness interviews into a video. Of course she would suggest that – she’s a production specialist, and videos are her area of expertise. As for me, I love collaborating, and so I said yes immediately.
For the project, I made an art book with pictures of fifteen things that people tend to enjoy – such as family, vacations, music, seasons, and so forth – and then asked people which of the images made them most happy. For the second part of the video, I asked people to name a person that made them even happier than something in the art book. We had a great time creating the video, and we gained some great insight into what makes the people of Minneapolis happy. Check it out:
