Director Statement:
In an article on June 14 2020, The Sunday Times revealed the results of a commissioned survey on people's perceptions of essential jobs within the context of a pandemic. Doctors were ranked number 1 as under essential jobs and Artists were ranked number 1 under non-essential jobs.

It is undeniable that we are not as essential as compared to doctors and nurses in this pandemic but artists that non essential?

Even without a pandemic, a majority of the population deems the art industry as nugatory but can you imagine a life without music, movies, fashion labels, games, advertisements etc.? This series talks about the struggles faced by many passionate young artists who are constantly being persuaded by others to not pursue their passion as there is no future in the creative industry.
