…I made the music and movie to share the awareness of what we know is happening for real. In a limited time we can see, feel and reflect on the highs of highs right to the bottom of the lows…and move forward the best we can. I know I share this feeling with most of you “life happens”…
#rob: I guess I should tell u a bit about some of the issues that the movie deals with. Since I began Ive met tons of young exceptionally motivated people around the world who all seem to have similar concerns about issues like: divorce, peer pressure, sexual identity, support, abuse, disease and suicide to name a few. All these issues, we seem to mutually agree, need more attention…and need better awareness of what REALLY happening!!!
One thing is for sure…thanks to so many people and thier contributions, in many different ways…a lot of these issues are exposed in the movie.
BUT…to me and many others this movie is just one way to make people aware of some of the heavy sh*t that’s really existing.
My true goal is to start us all talking about what matters to each of us, and together start to figure ways to deal with these issues and make some kind of REAL DIFFERENCE!!!!!!
that’s where you come in.
#rob: The more I understood about these issues the more upset I became which lead to motivation, which then lead to an un-stoppable dedication to make this movie a reality!!!
The process was without question one of the most intense things I have ever done! First having to research what was really going on and why more wasn’t being done to make a difference…The more I spoke with people in their teens and twenties the more obvious it was to me that I wasn’t alone…
Every issue we deal with in the film I have seen many young people go through and the more I talk to these people the more we began to realize that there were more things we could do when we stick together 🙂
What came next…finding the right actors that would clearly get the real messages out there….
