Director Statement

In This Life is a web series based on the struggle artists have achieving their dreams in the mist of the real obstacles they face. With rent at an all time high and student loans in the face of every 20 year old, the dream seems impossible yet millions choose to chase it anyway. I was inspired to create this series based on my own experiences as a struggling actor and I knew so many people could relate. Whether your'e an actor, musician, visual artist or a photographer you'll probably be able to relate to Kyiah on some level.
