FIVE MINUTES WITH ROSIE GABRIELLE

 

ATFF:

Hello, not long now till this summer’s Adventure Travel Film Festival. We are so excited to be sharing so many fantastic films this year. Lets start with a quick summary of yours, what’s it about?

Rosie:

This was a quick montage I put together of my motorcycle trip across Oman.  On this trip I struggled to pick up my massive KLR.  Because the bike was too tall, I dropped it nearly everyday.  And everyday, I needed up picking it up. In this film I show you the adventure, the struggle, and the humanity and kindness of those I met.  It then shows the real human side of the people I came across and just how lovely they are.  I end it by saying  “You could have all the money in the world, but all the money will not give you that ( experience)”.  Through that experience, although difficult, I met incredible people. Those people showed me what real humanity and love was about. It brought me to tears knowing that I could share this truth with the world and to inspire others.

ATFF:

How did the film come about? Was it something that you’ve always been interested in?

Rosie:

It just sort of came together.  I needed an opening video for my Oman vlog series and this short film was born.  I was on a mission to share with the world. To inspire others to get out and live their dreams. To not listen to the negative stereotypes that the media likes to portray. Or to listen to their own limiting beliefs or the constructs of others. To inspire them to go out and live their life and to show it in the most vulnerable real way that I could.

ATFF:

This years films have spanned oceans mountains, glaciers… a huge range of environments. What challenges did you face in making yours?

Rosie:

I have many health problems, including chronic lymes disease, auto immune disease and I battle with anxiety and depression.  It’s a pretty huge deal for me to go out and do the adventures that I do.  But I’m very passionately driven to spread this message to the world.

ATFF:

Is there anything that you would like audiences to take away from your film?

Rosie:

Life is short.  What’s the point to spend your entire life slaving away working in a job that makes you unhappy, just so that you can have material things.  Things that disappear, that have no real value.  When the true value lies in the experiences you have, the people you meet. Don’t be afraid to live your life, go after your dreams. Don’t limit yourself.  And be open minded.  There is so much beauty in this world, other cultures. Don’t listen to the negative mindset of the media and News.  This is the truth. Go out and experience it for yourself. You will be amazed at what you might find.

ATFF:

We have lots of people come to the festival who aspire to future film makers. Do you have any advice?

Rosie:

Never say you can’t.  You may be afraid or overwhelmed, but you can do anything you put your mind and heart to.  I used to be deathly afraid of speaking in front of the camera. But then my passion outweighed the fear.  Go for it!

ATFF:

Are you coming to this years festival? How can audiences find out more and connect with you?

Rosie:

Unfortunately not, I don’t have the funds to fly there.  But you can find my youtube page by searching “Rosie Gabrielle” or follow me on Instagram or Facebook at @Rosiegabrielle
