David Welsford lives on a 28-foot sailboat called Lizzy Belle that he rescued from a scrap heap. With only the bare necessities, he still feels like the richest man in the world. Filmmaker Kevin A. Fraser offers a glimpse into Welsford’s daily routine and his musings on how life at sea has changed him.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
