about (un)balanced: a web series
This is the story of a young woman Melissa, attempting to find her center. The obstacle? Why, that would be the insanity of living in New York City. Through 5 comedic episodes she attempts to jump into this "new age" life-style and is thwarted - either by her own conflicting beliefs or the the city that never sleeps. Is balance an illusion? Or something which is difficult to attain but worth the effort?
Throughout Melissa's journey, she certainly isn't adverse to trying absolutely everything to change her high frequency lifestyle. She attempts meditation, acupuncture, yoga, juice cleanses, essential oils, some career manifestation and positive mantras...some are effective, while others she decides to leave for others to conquer. But one thing is consistent: life and new york city don't make these new attempts easy - but it sure does make it funny!
(un)balanced is in parentheses because I love the illusion of balance, can it truly be consistent? I believe it is defined differently by everyone.
I think everyone can relate to the anxieties which can creep up on a daily basis. I want to explore the comedy in the paradox of striving for "balance" while still staying true to living your life and making the "short-term fun choice".
