Asé - Asé pronounced "ah-sheh" is an African philosophical concept of the Yoruba through which you are able to conceive the power to make things happen and produce change.
This is the teaser trailer for the independent project I am producing (please select HD when watching). The premise is to open up the narrative and showcase millennial's and the things we are doing to educate ourselves and stay motivated as we combat the actions of the Trump administration. This entire project was shot on an iPhone (iPhone 7 Plus + iPhone SE) and edited entirely myself.
I don't have all the answers. I don't think anyone does. But I know that through dialogue we can slowly start to have the conversations that allow us to truly see one another and realize that it's our personal responsibility to be further invested and attentive when it comes to the issues we face.
I believe this is a story that needs to be told and I am currently in the process of pitching this project to a variety of companies. But in the event it does not get picked up the show must go on. I am a one man show currently writing, directing and producing this entire series myself. I already have the wireframes for 15 episodes/topics mapped out, but I need help if I'm going to be able to produce episodes and receive valuable feedback to the work I am creating at a more rapid rate. Check out the Indiegogo contribution page.
And if you feel that you could contribute to this project by sharing your story please feel free to reach out to me. I'm always looking to showcase more perspectives. Asé!
