What does the word HERO mean to you? Think about who you would consider as some of the heroes of our current times.
⇒ ⇒ The term comes from the ancient Greeks. During this time, a hero was a mortal who had done something so far beyond the normal scope of human experience that he left an immortal memory behind him when he died.
⇒ (Many writers now consider the word , long restricted to men in the sense "a person noted for courageous action," to be a gender-neutral term. We use the word in the same context.)
A hero deliberately and courageously over-comes obstacles for the benefit of others without regard to personal consequences. Conquered obstacles are the only qualifying credentials of heroes and a measure of one’s own hidden powers. Heroes embrace obstacles as opportunities for growth, utilize fear as a means to show courage, protect and maintain the dignity of their adversaries, crusade compassionately for those unable to speak for themselves, and celebrate diversity for the enrichment of mankind.
⇒ ⇒ We are dedicated to our existence as a Community Interest Company (CIC) providing a range of corporate and community based media training and production. We will create innovative content with the potential of being commissioned or showcased via a range of avenues. We are committed to working in partnership with local, national and international groups who share similar ideals and ethically look towards inspiring positive change both locally and across wider parameters. Our students will be mentored towards using our intervention as a gateway towards building a career in Media or Performance Art, and gaining accredited qualifications, or will simply use the experience to build a more enhanced appreciation and understanding of the world around them. At the very least, they will find the super hero that lies within us all.
⇒ ⇒ We have built up a network of creative and technical professionals who we call upon to offer their skills as and when required for our projects. We are always on the look out for archetypal heroes of any kind and from all walks of life who collectively value the power of spreading a new world order message and inspiring those in need. We pay for your valuable time and efforts and help encourage a culture of sharing skills and resources for the good of mankind.
