hollywood is my mother
since birth, we’re taken under hollywood’s wing to be shaped by her, influenced by her and raised by her. but now, we’ve grown and it’s our turn to set the new standards of imagination with whatever we can imagine.
sixteen projects form one narrative mood board that’s built to reveal what’s inside us. the stories that reject the very existence of one-size-fits-all uniformity. the stories that prove how a new world of original work can challenge the very world we live in.
and hollywood is my mother is the blank canvas on which i begin.
