We are a small team of mindfulness practitioners, freelance cartoonists, illustrators, animators, producers, directors, media professionals, activists and volunteers, led by Gregory Kennedy-Salemi and Stuart Jolley, who began several years ago with a "Big Hairy Audacious Goal" to start a Mind-Ful-Media company that Inspires Social Change.


For the past 3 years our team of imperfect perfectionists, has had the great pleasure of working in cooperation with globally renowned Zen Master, mindfulness pioneer, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and best selling author, Thich Nhat Hanh, in developing Mind-Ful-Media.



Mind-Ful-Media that is designed to create a more compassionate world, to confront bullying and foster healing and reconciliation, and to educate teachers, young people, and families in the practice of mindful living and inspired social action.



During our meetings and interviews with Thich Nhat Hanh and Sister Chan Khong, they have encouraged us to build a Mind-Ful-Media Community, to combine our collective power, energy and experiences to create content that can engage and inspire people to act and to be more compassionate, loving and kind to themselves, their families and children, and even to those with whom they may disagree with. 



Creating and producing Mind-Ful-Media and seeking sustainable and cost-effective ways to produce, market and distribute them, is more than a full-time job for us.  

                                                             

We have become very good at developing and producing media content on a very reasonable budget, yet marketing and distributing media is very expensive.  





It would be naive to not clearly understand that artists and start-up companies have a small chance to succeed in the ultra-competitive world of the media business.  Friends, family, donors, lots of hard work, sweat and tears, love for what we do, and great mentors who taught us to "Just keep swimming," have brought us to this moment. 

                               

Here are a few of the projects we are working on:
Planting Seeds: The Power Of Mindfulness, is an animated film for children, parents and educators, based on Thich Nhat Hanh's bestselling book, is currently in production. 

'Amelia' and 'Jasper' character designs and a scene from the Planting Seeds storyboard.



We are 95% finished with our animated documentary The 5 Powers, featuring Thich Nhat Hanh, Sister Chan Khong, Alfred Hassler and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The 5 Powers 2nd Edition Augmented Reality comic book is also 98% completed.
