My Story - 4 Years In the Making
 
04:28
About 4 years ago, I was in a place where my vision was clouded by fear and confusion. I had just finished nursing school and landing a job was a challenge. 2014 was when I was first introduced to photography and it completely changed my life. A follower from Instagram sent me a direct message asking me for some advice on what he should do since he too loves photography but is pressured by expectations of other people and the famous ‘go to school, get a job, get promoted and retire’ way of living. While I see no problem with the latter, I feel that this conventional way of living isn’t for everyone, in fact it isn’t for me. This is when I thought of making a film of my story in hopes of inspiring someone who I was in the past, that if I can do it then you can too. Always remember that we only have a limited amount of time in this world so make every single bit of it count.

What It Takes
 
01:36
It’s a weekend, you look out the window, snow is falling from the sky and starts piling up on the ground. You check the weather and it feels like -40 outside. You decide, today is not the day to spend outdoors. Though for some creators, it’s the opposite. This is the day the creators of Toronto look forward to. My friend Lucas and I decided to take the ferry to the Toronto Islands and shoot under the most adverse conditions whilst appreciating nature in its entirety. Here’s ‘What It Takes’ a short film that represents the creators who go the extra mile to show their love and passion for creating. If you like the content, please do subscribe to the channel. I upload every Sunday. Thank you for your support!

Disconnect to Reconnect
 
03:09
In an era where the average adult (18+) spends about 2 hours and 51 minutes on their smartphone everyday, disconnecting from technology has been harder than ever. My journey to minimalism has been a huge help in terms of spending less time on my phone and investing more time in things and activities that are both physically and mentally healthy. This short film I highlights the significance of using time as an asset and allocating that time to reset and re-prioritize. A film that shows why you should disconnect to reconnect. I hope this inspires you to go do something fun, relaxing and anything else your heart desires. Enjoy! Huge thanks to my best friend Romaine for always being there to support my ambitions and being my model for this short film. haha Social: Instagram - @kidoctober Twitter - @kidoctbr KIT: kit.com/kidoctober Website: kidoctober.com E-mail: [email protected] Much love, -kid

DEBT FREE IN 6 MONTHS
 
05:27
Here’s the video i’ve been waiting to make for myself and for those who need it. 6 months ago, I made a goal of paying off my student loans in full. Prior to that, I was only paying the minimum monthly payment and I felt like I was going nowhere. With financial freedom as one of my new long term goals, I wanted to make sure that I pay off all of my debt as fast and as soon as possible. It was a long journey with a LOT of temptations to spend instead of save but i’ve finally made it. I can now say that I AM DEBT FREE. I can attest that being debt free is a feeling unique to anything else. It just feels so damn good. If I can help at least one of you feel whatever I am feeling right now, i’ll be really happy. I am giving away a book by Dave Ramsey, ‘The Total Money Makeover’. I owe my successes to this book. If I haven’t read it and commited to Dave’s practices, I would still be making my minimum payments on my student loans. How to participate in the giveaway: 1) Subscribe to my channel 2) Comment down below! Giveaway is for Canadian residents only. Winner will be announced on Tuesday, February 12, 2019.

Why Perfection is Overrated
 
02:25
For the past year, perfection has been the number one factor that has been stopping me from sharing content. I woke up one day and promised myself that I will make a film and not worry about how it will turn out. I’ve decided to finally make my East Coast travel film since it has been sitting on my hard drive for a good year now. Hope you guys enjoy this one. It was a surreal road trip. Make sure to check out the cool peeps in this video! Road trip buddies: Sanjay - @jayeffex Rob - @therobong Ashton - @ashtontekno Also, big shoutout to Kyle (@chillinwithbernie), Kali (@kalibrocklehurst), Carter (@northofcarter), Zach (@capt.zachsparrow) and Jason (@jsn.ptrsn) for showing us around Nova Scotia.

INSTAGRAM IS NOT AN APP
 
02:56
Hey guys! My name is Marlon, aka Kidoctober. Hope you enjoyed the video. As an avid user of Instagram, I always looked at the platform as an opportunity to meet like-minded people. I myself have struggled and still continue to struggle with meeting new people and I see it as a hindrance to grow as an artist and a creator. This whole process was a challenge for me and i'm so glad that I just went for it. A special thanks to the guys below who came to the meet. I will list their names down including their Instagram accounts. Check them out if you'd like.

Escape - A Short Film
 
02:10
This new project came to life when I first heard You & Me by Disclosure (song I used in the video). It was a song shuffled in one of my Spotify playlists. Often it occurs that music gets my creative juices flowing. It fills my brain with ideas and stimulates an excitement to shoot whatever i'm imagining. Next thing you know, i'm out and about making those ideas come to life. These spontaneous type of shoots I usually consider as an escape to the stresses that life bring and serve as time to reflect. The beauty of nature never really fails to prove to me that the life i'm living is already amazing as it is. Enjoy! Song: You & Me - Disclosure feat. Eliza Doolittle (Flume Remix) Shot in Port Union, Scarborough, Ontario Here's to my first ever travel film. I'm hoping I could do more of these in the future. My 5-week trip to the Philippines was the best trip i've had so far which makes me miss everything already. Can't wait to go back! The places featured in this video: Bacnotan, La Union Baguio City, Benguet Manaoag, Pangasinan Hannah's Resort, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte Song choice: Dwell - Tony Anderson FOLLOW/CONTACT ME: Instagram: @kidoctober E-mail: [email protected] Website: kidoctober.com Thanks for watching!

Weekend Getaway + Giveaway Winner
 
03:34
Hey guys! Missed an upload last Sunday so this video is to make up for it. I was at a cottage north of Toronto on the weekend and spent some quality time with friends. January was a tough month in terms of creating content, I made 11 videos in total that month, the most i've ever done in one month. This was definitely a much needed break for me. Now that i'm back in Toronto, i'm excited to make more videos so stay tuned! Also congrats to Ethan Fairchild for winning 'The Total Money Makeover' book.
