what ABOUT THE STIGMA?

It seems like celebrities and athletes are speaking publicly about their
mental health issues

 We see more ads, apps, and TV shows talking about mental illness…

Is stigma on its way out the door?

And if you are courageous enough to come forward with a problem, what do you do next?

Treatment’s expensive… How the hell do you get any real help if you’re broke?

OUR GOALS

directing films is emotionally tAXING

 where thick skin is mandatory and you’re only as good as your last project

“How that must wear on the human psyche,” Matt thought after being up 48 straight hours editing his latest project. “To always be judged, assessed, turned down, turned off,discounted — no wonder I’m always walking a thin line between happiness and complete and utter despair,” the voice in his head concurred

IS MENTAL HEALTH AN EPIDEMIC?

our PURPOSE

To shine a light on mental health and mental illness in an honest and relatable manner.  We will show that despite a growing awareness and acceptability of the issues there is still a lack of education and a stigma that still thrives in today’s society.
