Experiencing Interruptions?

The Car Wash Therapy Session © Official Selection

Losing both of his parents very early on in life and losing a few close friends along the way due to gangs, violence, drugs and shootings made him realize quickly that he needed to choose a different path for his future. That’s when he decided to pick up a camera and tell stories and the rest was history. The mind is a powerful tool, going into this project I knew that I wanted to get as creative as possible with it because mental health is an extremely important topic for me. As a mental health advocate myself I wanted to take you into this journey where I want you to just relax and enjoy the session. The creative process and direction behind this scene is that I want you to embrace and immerse yourself into the moment and leave all your mixed feelings and emotions behind and let them get washed away and as you’re exiting you’ll find yourself with a clean and better conscious and mindset, leaving all your bad moments, bad feelings and bad thoughts behind and you’re entering a fresh beginning. We all have different ways of coping with stress, anxiety, depression or losing a loved one. It’s ok if this session makes you sad, happy, relaxed, joyful, soothing or if it makes you cry because it reminds you of something tough that you went through in life, it’s all part of the healing process let it stimulate all your senses. Just remember that no matter what, there’s always going to be light at the other end of the tunnel and there's always hope. My work and creative direction on all my projects will always be created with the soul intention to always make you feel some type of way. Make sure you watch it all the way to the end and soak it all in………..Thanks for watching and I hope this helped someone out there...... #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawarness #mentalhealthadvocate
