"26 Seconds" is a dramatic documentary episodic miniseries that peers behind an evil shadowy curtain of this rampant global plague. It takes audiences from the neon underground in Thailand to the dusty refugee camps of Iraq; from the glitz and glam of Las Vegas to across the border in Tijuana; from the sunny streets of Southern California to the slums of New Delhi, Phnom Penh and East Africa. The 26 Seconds pilot is currently available on the online platforms listed below. Creating Awareness & a Call to Action in 68 English Speaking countries and over 120 countries overall.
26 Seconds will be show at Chapman College at 7pm on Thursday, November 21 as part of a community awareness event: "It Happens Here Too." For more information and to RSVP, please click here.
Inspired by true events in Utah, Unseen is about a teenage girl’s innocent social media mistake. Carly, 17, like most teenagers, want to have her own money, be seen at parties, get out of her small town and find something better, even become famous. Carly’s way out of her current situation comes in the form of a social media avert that she sees on her phone. An agency looking for models and offering them a prize of $1,000. Due to some everyday white lies, Carly puts herself in an unsafe position. Carly’s lies lead to her being unseen, never to be seen again. The next day when family and friends realize that no-one knows Carly’s whereabouts, it’s too late. This is “fame lure” and can happen to any child, anywhere at any time.
