Why this story is being told

This story is being told to make audiences laugh and feel good, but at the same time remind them that it is ok to be YOU. Even if you’re awkward or different, instead of trying to erase the awkward things that might set us apart, instead we should embrace them, for when we do it truly brings us together.

“Life as Such was a great inspiring, funny short film by Actor, Writer and Producer Aaron K. Wilson, who really allowed us to be reminded of our uniqueness or as the character Izzy would call it ‘awkward’. I enjoyed watching this film and loved how even through adversity in his day to day life, Izzy wasn’t bothered with being or acting awkward but was happy to be himself and bring the best out of everyone else.”
– Guerdy

“Again, through Life As Such, congrats on giving people permission to lean into the awkwardness of life and to come through it with more self-awareness, confidence and personal growth.”

– Joan
