Yak Films is among the most inspirational discoveries of my life. The crew of Yoram Savion and Kash Gaines hail from the East Bay (Oakland and Berkeley), but they’ve made the world their home as they travel in search of the world’s best dancers. What’s more, their passion for urban culture, music, and self expression has allowed them to turn a hobby into a full-blown business.

I interviewed Yoram Savion for Fast Company one year ago, and I’m sad to say that I never published the piece I wrote. In some ways I was much to close to the subject. Not only do I adore the music and the lifestyle, but I’m able to dissect and critique their camera work, because I spent a year at Columbia learning digital film production.

So while I’ve resolved to be a more patient person in 2013, I’m grateful to Yak Films for demonstrating what is possible when you let your life be ruled by passion. May all you awesome people be as free and expressed as Yak Films in the new year.

2013. The Year of The Yak!
