Director Statement

“In March of 2020, I decided that since we were going to be locked down for a bit due to COVID-19, I wanted to start posting content to this new app that everyone was talking about. At first, I was posting videos on TikTok for fun but after seeing my following go from 0 to 10,000 in one week, I knew I wanted to start taking it seriously. A year later I’ve reached an audience of 1.9 million followers and now create content for my full-time job. I wanted to create a film to help inspire my artistic friends to start sharing their content online and to show that there has never been a better time in history to be an artist or creative.”
