Selfless Storyboard Reel

Featured Video Play Icon

Currently we are breathing life into the timely, relevant Documentary ‘Selfless.’ A film examining the effects of selfies, social media, and technology on youth today.

In epidemic proportions we are watching a new generation seek validation and acceptance based on how many ‘LIKES’ and hollow comments they receive in shallow places. 

Many drowning in a world of self indulgence, how can we best inspire them to see how our world opens up when we close these windows.

Today there are 50% more depressed teens than there were 20 years ago – why – because they are choosing to stay home alone on their screens vs. human interaction. Studies show the average teen is spending 7 1/2 hours per day on screens.

Snapchat tells us they are putting up over 3 BILLION posts every 24 hours – with Instagram boosting over 100 MILLION every day.

‘Imagine what we could do with all that time!’ 

Staggering numbers – but even more alarming is the fact that 66% of our girls are uploading sexually explicit photos to these places, while 93% percent of our boys are experiencing their sexual awakening there.

Not to overlook the unbalance of body, mind and soul – as a result of these behaviours.

We are in an epidemic! Truth is we are ALL a part of an ongoing experiment in technology with no one knowing the outcome for mankind.

Fresh Independence has been touring around the country speaking real time with teens about the challenges they face today and their life in social media.

During early storyboarding days we asked ourselves, ‘What would it be like if a girl lived in the forest – no mirrors – no magazines – no social media – what would beautiful look like to her – and how would she view herself?’

Then musician Kuki found us and with camera in tow, we headed off the grid to the hills of Devon England – to begin filming.

 With full hearts we are hopeful ‘Selfless’ is a documentary that you will feel the urgency to get behind: Helping us to inspire youth to live fully in this new age of technology.

Selfless is currently being considered on the pitching circuit. If you have interest in our latest ‘Storyboard Reel’ please inquire:

No One Can Rock It On Out Like Lenny

We have never been ones to kick someone when they are down or bring dirty deets to light, but we had to make comment on this one. Have always been a fan of Lenny Kravitz’s music and love how he washes the new with an injection of retro and really is the epitome of cool. Not every guy can rock a pair of leather pants like he can and it must of been one of the most embarrassing moments of  his life when they split open during his performance the other night. Couldn’t be a worse time for something like this to happen as everyone has a camera these days and with social media on fire it has now been imprinted in the shallow books of modern history for all to google.

Yes these are the best and the worst of times and I have to agree with Lenny as he says that these photos are ‘a breach of his human rights.’ But in truth the damage has already been done – they have been screen shot – tweeted – face booked and tag lined to haunt him forever. My Dad always told me that you can do a hundred things right but you will always be remembered for the one thing you did wrong. In this case it was involuntary and the threads of modesty let him down.

We love you Lenny and have not saved any of the photos cos it’s just wrong — simply had a quick peek and have to say — ‘nobody can rock out with their cock out’ quite like you.

Here is to many more years of amazing music.
