Creating my own ish

I recently decided it was time to start creating my own content, given my great affinity for documentary work. After dedicating a few months to developing my ideas, I now have two productions that are already in pre-production.


I'd like to introduce you to my first production, titled "Breaking the Silence."

"Breaking the Silence" delves into the hidden struggles and pressures faced by young footballers. Through powerful storytelling, we explore their mental health challenges, the intense pressures from parents, and the journey from grassroots to potential professional careers. We also show the struggles players face when they "make it," highlighting the ongoing pressures and mental health challenges that continue throughout their careers. Additionally, we delve into the advocates of mental health within sport and what is being done to combat these issues, showcasing efforts and initiatives aimed at creating a more supportive and understanding environment for athletes.


Our Vision:

Our vision is to create a world where young footballers can pursue their dreams without being crushed by the weight of unrealistic expectations and pressures. We aim to:

  • Highlight Mental Health: Raise awareness about the mental health struggles faced by young athletes and the impact of intense pressures from parents and the football industry.

  • Promote Change: Advocate for systemic changes within youth football to prioritize mental well-being and provide better support systems for young players.

  • Inspire Dialogue: Encourage open conversations about mental health in sports, reducing stigma and fostering a more compassionate environment for future generations.

Sure, here is the revised version including Aaron Lennon:
