Today's video of the day comes to us from the people over at Great Big Story. This one is about the man who created the Seinfeld theme, and recreated it every week. The people over at Great Big Story make great short documentaries about interesting characters. This is a great example of the kind of work you can do. Just pick up the camera and go find a character. Remember small stories work the best.

From Great Big Story:

Meet composer Jonathan Wolff; he’s responsible for writing the theme songs to more than 44 television shows, including "Saved by the Bell: The College Years," "Will & Grace," and most famously, "Seinfeld." Here’s how he created a theme song about nothing, that changed every show.
