TRANSPARENT(s) at their FINEST

Everyone has a story, a testimonial or simply put, an experience that put them in the trajectory that they are in today.  No one is alone.  I’m thankful to capture moments like these.  I’m thankful for the people who hear my story and also oblige to share a bit of their story with me.  A piece of advice to you: never be afraid to share your story, you’d be surprised with how many people share a common story with you.

If you want to be featured as a future TRANSPARENT, email transparency.is.beautiful@gmail.com and we can set up a time for a 5 minute interview on how transparency affects you and your life along with answering some customized interview questions.

The month of October primarily in the states and in other countries throughout the world is the celebration of Halloween amongst world premiere release of horror movies. For this month’s TRANSPARENCY at their FINEST, we highlight the perspective of horror in film.

  • No (86%)

Overall, most of the horror movies that were recalled occurred in the 1990s, but there are some that date back to the 1980s (The Shining) and prior (The Exorcist). Most horror movies are created to create nightmare as opposed to bringing humor, but we have much to thank to the infamous Wayans family for ‘The Scary Movies’ sequels, where we could scream and laugh at the same time. More participants started to watch horror movies from 5-15 years of age as opposed to later years. Some participants stated that they never watched horror movies, which I find hard to believe. Maybe they don’t want to remember watching a horror movie, or did not realize a movie that they had seen in the past was categorized as a horror movie. Surprisingly, most participants are LESS likely to go see a horror movie in the month of October, despite the promotions and movie releases that occur in and around that month.
