Last month, Substantial contributed to an edition of the breakfast lecture series CreativeMornings SF by setting up an interactive installation relating to the theme of the event – humility. To pair with the event’s keynote from Aminatou Sow we set up a confessional booth and asked one question.

“When have you felt humbled?”

It’s hard to stay humble. It’s also hard to sit in front of a stranger with a camera and admit to a time you felt humility. We were lucky enough to hear stories from people of all backgrounds and ages relating their own experiences with this often personal topic. From major life changes to careless mistakes, the accounts were inspiring; all unique and all ultimately seen as an opportunity to learn and grow.

We captured the morning’s confessions and have put them all online. Check out the trailer above and view the full videos on our Vimeo channel.
