DOCUMENTARY // 30-SOMETHING
I woke up one day, struck by what I saw in the mirror. "Fuck, where did all this gray come from?!” What I was really asking was “Is this it?” If you’re feeling like you’re an ocean away from how you want to live your life, or could use some orientation, well, this film series is for you.

30-Something is a short documentary about the pursuit of fulfilment. It explores how different global citizens in their thirties maneuver through relationships; careers; faith and identity in light of predefined social expectations of their age. Expectations like being seasoned adults, with little room for experimentation or re-invention. In their hunt for a more fulfilling life, will these individuals get phased out by their age and conform, or will they defy those expectations?
I’m in the process of developing 30-Something into a cinematic documentary series, complete with its own podcast. I’m on the lookout for production partners, sponsors and collaborators. Here is a presentation that should get you onboard.
PROOF OF CONCEPT
(turn on CC for subtitles)
As a proof of concept, I shot the vignettes below. Though the final treatment will ultimately look very different, the content is one and the same. When these were posted on social media, they resonated very positively with millennials.
