This Patreon page represents the first time my lifelong project is stepping through the door into the visible.

The Emrys Collective was born out of a deep desire to understand the world around me. To get to the nitty-gritty of the how and why. To explore the dark and the light, the beautiful, ugly and especially visceral aspects of what it means to exist in the here and now.

This passion blossomed into an obsession with photography, music, and words. However, I have known for a very long time that film would be the perfect medium to bring this project to life. All that you see on this page is a physical manifestation of the pieces coming together, building towards the whole.

Our world right now is rife with conflict, born, in my opinion, out of a systematic campaign to lie to us all. To lie to us about why we're here. To lie to us that humanity is the most important species on this planet. To lie to us and make us think that we are *truly* divided by race, gender, religion, age and more.

This system of lies has created an overwhelming longing and starvation for true meaning and connection. The Emrys Collective strives to deliver that - and most importantly, to remind us all how connected we are, through generating curiosity, understanding, self-discovery, and dialogue.

One of the building blocks of this project will utilize be a heretofore overlooked resource - the community of talented artists and thinkers around each and every one of us. I will be building a core team consisting of the talented and compassionate people I have been so lucky to get to know. We will use our collective talents, intelligence, and courage to work together and create an even greater butterfly effect around us.

We will utilize all of our resources - blogging, design, film, photography and music. They will all come together and influence the whole. There is not one big project I look towards as a goal - instead, an ever developing thread of exploration and understanding.

I sincerely believe the greatest way that I, and the people around me, can contribute to this world is to dive deep into ourselves and each other and play a role in this amazing time of upheaval - and lead it to reconnection and understanding. And YOU play a huge role in that, as a Patron, and as an open, curious, awakened being walking this earth.

Thank you. Welcome to The Emrys Collective.
