This week I had the incredibly opportunity of speaking with Parker Foster, NY-based filmmaker and founder of the mental health organization Be Here Now. Growing up learning how to film in the skate world, Parker quickly found the value of bringing an authentic and raw feeling to his work. In this episode, Parker and I talk about how he came to love and find solace in filmmaking and what led him to create a non-profit that highlights stories of those struggling with their mental health. Much like me, the inspiration behind Parker’s project stems from his own life. He is someone who conceptualizes his projects from sensitive parts of his life. I had such an incredible time speaking with Parker, and I encourage everyone to check out @beherenoworg or learn more about Parker at his website www.parkerfoster.com.
