You must confirm that you are 15 years or over to view this video.


Many of the world's youth have been affected by a culture of false positivity. They watch people on YouTube and on social media living lives beyond imagination as they travel around the world, meet celebrities, buy cars and houses... This impacts the way our youth view their own lives and can result in depression. The film I submitted as part of my pitch was filmed in a single room using myself as the actor. I'd love to develop this film topic further by creating even more powerful imagery through the use of spoken word artists, awe inspiring compositions and palpable story telling. I created this film preview with the bare minimum. Having an opportunity to manifest this concept on a larger scale, is very exciting indeed. The aim here is to make as big of an impact on today's youth as possible, in the shortest amount of time.
