I guarantee this is the most moving video you will see all year…

Jim Gilliam Is Living Proof That ANYTHING is Possible!

Jim Gilliam Is Living Proof That ANYTHING is Possible!

When you have 12 minutes you MUST watch this speech that my friend Jim Gilliam just gave. It’s called, “The Internet Is My Religion”. Jim is a true blessing on earth and if you’re not moved by his words in this speech then you need to check your pulse ASAP!

This speech is one of the most moving things I’ve seen in a long time. It’s impossible to not hear Jim’s words and feel that anything is possible… Jim is living proof that it is!

I connected with Jim back in 2004 when he was working for filmmaker Robert Greenwald & I was working for filmmaker Michael Moore. We obviously had similar gigs then and have stayed in touch ever since. I’m always blown away by Jim’s ideas. He created an amazing site called http://act.ly which allows anyone to start a petition on twitter… GENIUS! Many major non-profits have started using and I’m sure that site will only continue to grow.

In fact, I even credit Jim with getting me on Twitter! He attended a screening of my film, The Youngest Candidate, in December of 2008 and sent this tweet afterwards = https://twitter.com/jgilliam/status/1062313285. I found that tweet while doing a google search for the “The Youngest Candidate” after my screening. When I saw his tweet I realized in that moment that every tweet was it’s on unique URL! That was a major “aha” moment for me and I joined Twitter immediately.

I have no doubt that this is not the last we will be hearing about Mr. Gilliam… I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!

Here’s the clip (you might want to grab a box of tissues) :
