We have been closely following the Huffington Post #TalkToMe Series in which luminaries and entrepreneurs are interviewed by their grown children.
Interviewees include Melinda Gates, Michael Bloomberg, Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Laura Bush and many more. For us at Portraits that Move, we are captivated by the ways in which these individuals, all of whom have been interviewed countless times before by the best in the business, open up when they are speaking with their children.
With this seies, we are witnessing, again, the beauty of conversation between parents and children and the power of film to bring those conversations to life. The children in these cases are adults who are accomplished in their own right. As part of the Portraits that Move filmmaking process, we interview children when they are young and just beginning to discover their dreams - and their voices. But we see, and we know that you all do, too, that the same bond we develop with our children when they are babies grows and develops just as they do.
The bonds we create with our children through the conversations we have with them - time spent listening as much as speaking - help to empower them to be leaders, just like the subjects of these wonderful interviews.
What conversations are you having with your kids? Try some of our conversation starter ideas today.
