don't take yourself so seriously.
this class meant so much to me and i'm so grateful to be able to share something very special to such a great event. my greatest intention with this piece was creating an experience for two people that were pushed to act vulnerable and silly with each other. to find a way to create a story based off of their own relationship, either if they were close friends or strangers to each other. i started creating this piece in 2018 and kept changing ever since because it was mainly inspired by wanting to make people smile when they start dancing with each other. "false confidence" means to put on a mask that you've given yourself so that people can't tell that you're hurting inside. i wanted people to feel a certain way while watching this piece and understand that whenever you are trying to lift others up, always make sure that you take care of yourself as well and you never sacrifice your own emotions for the sake of other people. the right people will always come back to you and make you feel loved. hope you guys enjoy.

hi everybody. Thank you for taking the time to watch this very important video of mine. I can't even begin to tell you how long of a journey it's been to get to this stage. To start off, this project is overall a short film. A short film that I have been continuously working on for 2 ½ years now. A short film that revolves around my entire work for the past 3 years. A short film that can hopefully change the perspective of dance and inspire endless numbers of people. I can't say much right now because every part of this film is so different and heart-driven and I want you to experience it in a complete manner, that way everything makes sense.
It's so important to me that I create something that can possibly have the chance to change someone's life. to look at the world differently. to feel something they've never felt before. However, I felt that it was just as important to ask the people that have been a part of my journey, to be involved in the most valuable project of mine. That is why I need your help. It's very challenging to set out every layer of this film myself but your belief and support only motivates me to continue. In the past, I have been able to develop my own project but trust me, this is completely different. It's not just a video or a social media promotion. This is basically my life's work put into motion, and I hope you will believe in this, just as much as I do.
Please donate, or share, or spread the word about this film of mine. I promise you that I won't rest until I'm able to give out the best possible creation that I can possibly create. Thank you so much for your unconditional support and love throughout my journey. It means the entire world to me and I can't put into words about how thankful I am for every single one of you. https://www.gofundme.com/f/seanlewfilm
