You may ask yourself, “Why does the word thAng have an A and not an I?” Because, like the A, you stAnd out! Every single person is unique, and we all offer something special to make the world a better place. Whether you are an artist, a student, an entrepreneur or retired, you have gifts and talents to share with the world. The question is, are we all using them?
“The story of The DYT Show was birthed from a burning desire to connect two worlds: today’s generation and the leaders in our community,” says Natalia Moy, the show’s producer. “Through the reality of hard work and perseverance, these successful entrepreneurs have lived through years of real world experiences that have made them the successful people they are today! DYT becomes the bridge allowing both worlds to come together, from our local community to worldwide. Once they have connected, they will learn from each other to build a secure and prosperous marketplace for our future.”
Do Your Thang Show, created and produced in Ocala and surrounding cities, is an innovative series poised to inspire its audience through drama, comedy and inspiring storytelling. Hosted by Chris Wims, the show follows its main character through a fictional drama of Chris’s struggle to escape a mundane life and pursue his passion for the fine arts.
“I was living a life that was very structured, conforming to a path that I thought would be the right one for me because it made sense to everyone. For so long having the right job, the right girlfriend, doing what I was supposed to do felt right,” says Chris. “Through time I observed people who were genuinely happy about coming to work, satisfied with their place in life. That made me look inside myself and ask ‘why?’ One day something clicked; I had enough. I decided to take a chance to live out my dream. Not the easiest thing to do because everything came crashing down. I had to build it back up.”
Everything came back together for Chris when he met Alex Moy, director for THID. Alex directed award-winning short film Protected, among other notable projects, and now the Do Your Thang Show. Alex’s camera gave Chris an outlet to be creative: acting. Now over a year later, the THID team has produced an amazing show to inspire their audience.
Ocalans will see familiar faces on the show with appearances from local business owners who will share their stories about turning their thAng into their day jobs.
