Film has been an escape for me for as long as I can remember. It’s a place to lose yourself in another world. Unfortunately for many, they end up getting lost in their own minds through depression or other mental health issues. I’ve been there too, as have many of my friends and family. It’s something that I’ve become passionate about. I want to do my small bit to try and help others that may need some help.
Since rolling the dice and starting my own company, it’s been a rollercoaster of emotions, but it has also brought me into the orbit of so many incredible people, initiatives and businesses.
Stuart reached out to me after seeing a documentary series that I made called Blindside and since that first meeting, we knew that we were on the same wavelength when it comes to mental health. Our first project together managed to reach hundreds of thousands of people. We want that relationship to continue, by creating new and diverse projects that all tackle the stigma of mental health in one way or another.
