First things first, sincere apologies for the lack of content recently. Both myself and Pete have been away for a week, and Adam has had a lot of Uni work on, meaning it’s been left to JB to manage all of our content. Whilst he has done admirably, it’s not a one person job, and we are fully aware it hasn’t been up to the standard we have set. However, our shit is officially together, and content is all systems go.
A while back we posted about the trailer for an upcoming documentary, Influencers. I was personally very excited for it’s release, and having just got back online for the first time this week, it was a nice surprise to see it’s gone live.
INFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment. The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach. Written and Directed by Paul Rojanathara and Davis Johnson, the film is a Polaroid snapshot of New York influential creatives (advertising, design, fashion and entertainment) who are shaping today’s pop culture.
There is lots of dialogue throughout the documentary explaining it’s purpose and origins so I won’t bore you with details, but check it out, and let us know what you think.
Who do you consider your biggest influencers? Let us know in the comments or on the Control The Riot Facebook Page.
