Aaron Nabus here and thanks for tuning into the Hall H Show, the voice of independent creators!

What does someone who suffers from massive overthinking do when challenged to do something crazy like give 61 hugs to 61 random people?

This was the premise for an incredible short movie that I watched at this year's International Mobile Film Festival that was created by CK Goldiing, an artist and presenter from Sheffield, England.

CK filmed himself  walking around Sheffield, asking complete strangers for a hug, all in one take!

His viral video, 61 Hugs, is a fascinating social experiment that showcases how someone terrified by the potential rejections, forges on ahead anyway with the winds of spontaneity, optimism, goodwill and human spirit at his back.

61 Hugs challenges CK's long-standing belief that "overthinking is the enemy of remarkable." I smile each time I think about this remarkable film.

Please enjoy my conversation with CK Golding, which almost didn't happen!

But in true CK fashion, the randomness of the universe had other plans for us.
