Kirby Ferguson created the viral documentary Everything is a Remix in his spare time, just as a little side project outside of his day job. After the instant buzz it received, Kirby was able to leverage his side project into a full-fledged career as a film-maker and video producer.

In this episode we’ll hear from Kirby on how the idea for Everything is a Remix first surfaced, then we’ll see how the success of that project turned into its own business, and then we’ll use his story to extract tips on how one should balance the work once we’ve turned a passion into an occupation.

Kirby’s new project is called This is Not a Conspiracy Theory, and it’s superb! Check it out.
