SHORT FILM (2018)
Crippled by a lifetime of overthinking, I guess I'm a typical artist – forever worried about rejection, people’s perceptions and how things look. One beautiful afternoon in 2018, I was challenged to leave my house, walk the busy streets, and ask sixty-one strangers for a hug. Although terrified by the inevitable rejections ahead, I accepted, clinging to my long-standing belief that ‘overthinking is the enemy of remarkable’. Filmed in one take - using actual footage from the challenge - ’61 Hugs’ demonstrates the remarkable power of optimism, heart and the universe.
