“The only thing you need to watch this year.”

Saw this live play/film/interactive experience—for that’s what it is, an experience, not a passive viewing—this summer at the 5 Point Film Festival (click here for more awesome trailers), which we helped media sponsor. It was the best thing I saw there, by far, and much of the rest was impressive, truly—that’s how extraordinary The Wolf & the Medallion is.

This scene blew us all away. We all asked for the video. Here it is.

Fast-forward to 3:22 if you’re busy or only have two minutes to live. Otherwise, do watch the whole thing. And never, ever, ever let the beast catch you:

From the award winning film “The Wolf & The Medallion”– the much requested “ten Things” is now available as a gift from all of us over at ThreeHouse. The Ten Things are a part of the letter written home to my 4 year old son from a small summit on the China/Mongolia border. Happy holidays!

We’re the first to share this up. Please do us a favor if you like videos we share and support independent media—if you’re touched by this, share our link and reward our time finding and sharing such treasures. Don’t share the video directly. Either way, Vimeo and Wolf & the Medallion win. Sharing this link, independent reader-created media wins, too. And that’s important, these days.


Only slightly related bonus (NSFW language):

“Now look, she wants the Heki two-roof lights, side by side french furniture and the scarlet cushions with the matching hatchback covers. Oh and boys, she’s terrible partial to the periwinkle blue.”


I tell ya wha I gonna do.

  1. Waylon?

    You're nuts.

    I love it 🙂

  2. I really did 🙂 I'm a simple living/high thinking pusher, so it had me right from #10….#2 is my personal pusher, and #1, I want that son of a bitch to come after me so I can kill it….

    Sharing it all over every site I can access!!!!!!

  3. Ahh…perfect. Needed this! Especially #5. No, scratch that, especially all of it.

  4. I liked the ten points, but what a terrible metaphor for living–running like an incessantly terrified rabbit.

    I prefer the idea of relaxing and meditating into our true nature, which hopefully opens us up to living the ten principles.

    A scared rabbit is not known for its spiritual insights or fulfilling living.

  6. […] But if we find ourselves constantly avoiding our work, avoiding certain people or places in our lives, chances are we paying a lip service “yes” to something that is actually a “no.” If you are passionate about something, you don’t have to talk yourself into thinking about it or spending time on it. You can’t stop yourself. It’s what drives you. […]

    Cool, but also agree with Bob. Also makes me a little disappointed to see the wolf being depicted as a "beast," poor creatures are having a rough year. 6 collared Yellowstone wolves have been killed in 2012. I think a much scarier and less little red riding hood like "beast" could have/should have been created and used.
