For those of us who “stand out”
we can never really “fit in”
We are not praying to be popular
We are not praying to be understood
We would much rather be “us”
We would much rather be “real”
And that’s a party you will never need an invitation to – RLH

Flagrant City Spotlight: Convos w/ Friends by Produced By Girls [SHORT FILM]

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.
