You all may remember the conversations I had with my friends @littlecoal, @thecraighensel, and @neighborhoodfilm and how during those conversations, we talked about a road trip. On Monday morning, a snippet of what took place during that road trip was published; and it is called "New Community: An Instagram Story". This 10 minute film documents an 8 day road trip across the country, and demonstrates the power of the Instagram community.
