"Don't Believe the Hype!: the Story of The Modern Day Bohemian" is back !! or something like that



      In society “artist” is not a job description, it is not a lifestyle, instead it is considered a hobby. Art is not something you are supposed to purse in college or even in life as a career. If you tell someone what you do and the answer is something solely artistic they would probably ask you again, probably ask you what your profession is; as if job title stands alone from whom the person truly is. “Don’t believe the Hype: The story of the Modern Day ‘Bohemian’”. Bohemian: a slang term used to describe a person, as an artist or writer, who lives and acts free of regard for conventional rules and practices. Stemming from the word describing people of Bohemia (ancient Czech Republic) who were thought to be Gypsies. Although this word seems like a slur, there are people who identify as such. Artists like myself and people I associate with are just doing what we love but also face harsh criticism because of it. DBTH is going to challenge these cruel interpretations of who young artists are and what we do. Profiling and following the lives of musicians, poets, actors, etc.; including 5 main people or groups/collectives this film is going to be a 45 to 60 minute journey, filmed over the course of 6 months.
