Nowadays it seems more and more people are discovering they suffer from depression. Though it may seem common, it doesn’t make the condition any easier to deal with and power through. Creatives, innovators and visionaries always seem to be victims of depression, and most use the void as a means of inspiration. This is precisely what Elyse Fox has done in her short film entitled ‘Convos with Friends’. In the film, Fox shows how friendship, music, and travel aide her in fighting her demons so she can continue to bring necessary art to her viewers.
You can watch the short film below.

And read a few words from the creator herself below:
“New year, cooler tings! Thank you all for viewing/sharing #ConvosWithFriends. We’re so excited about the conversation the film has ignited. With the release of the film many amazing women have been reaching out for advice/answers regarding life, womanhood, depression (etc) We want to create a place where we can discuss freely and anonymously.

What is up Flagrant City Fam? Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Charlotte but you can call me Lotti aka the Mad Princess. I come to you all from the East Coast, starting in New York and making my way through the South until I finally ventured out to California. My mother’s love of traveling when I was younger has stuck with me, and is probably the reason why I moved to LA. There’s so much to do in this city! In addition to a variety of experiences, LA also hosts an assortment of flavors and ideas making their way into the world every day. But a lot of happening scenes can get lost in the flood of social media. So it’s my hope that I can bring you all some great events where you can experience amazing art and better company. I hope you’ll join me as I assist Lowe down the path less traveled, and when you’re not listening to our fire tunes be sure to check out my blog!
Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way.
