Welcome To Be Who You Are Productions, Inc.
Each year, Be Who You Are Productions, Inc. creates a social change project spearheaded by Robin Rice. These creative endeavors stretch our skills, talent and vision, and serve to create community in diverse areas. They do not have a profit motive and often are run on a shoestring budget.
Below are our projects to date. Each one has been a collaboration of many who gifted their time and talents to the make the world a better place, even if just a little. We extend our heartfelt thanks to each one who has been involved, even if only in the sharing of the project.
There Comes A Time When You Have Simply Had Enough. Enough of the impossible standards. Enough of the "ideal" image. Most of all, enough of the feeling of NOT ENOUGH when it comes to your own beauty. There also comes a time when an entire culture of women have had it. When blogs and ad campaigns and AS-IS selfie pictures start to change the rules of the game. That time is now. That culture is this culture.
At Be Who You Are, we did our part to create a shift through 25+ graphic ads and highlighting the FrontLine Voices with a 10-Week Audio Series that went out to the world... for free. We gained worldwide coverage with press in more than 30 countries and visitors to the website from more than 100 countries. To learn more, visit StopTheBeautyMadness.com.
Inspired to be of deeper service to the world and hearing the call to empower women worldwide in the new feminine models of community, Robin and 50 local leaders created a 5-city tour to create music videos that inspire the world. Our first video had more than 10,000 views in ten days. The Facebook page for the Awesome Women And The Body Beautiful now has 50,000 fans.
"40 Moms. 40 Messages." It was a simple concept and cost all of $11 to create, yet this website supporting of our LGBTQ youth at the critical holiday times found more than 35,000 audio and video views, 700 heart wrenching comments, and most important, beautiful lives changed for the better. It may go down as one of the single most important thing we've ever done.
Robin wanted to show young people how a novel is written in real time. This written + video blog offered a bi-weekly chapter at first draft (yes, to show the down and dirty of what a first draft really looks like!) with videos on the writing process. It still awaits a second draft, and book two and three of the trilogy. Someday...
Remember when FLASH was big? Robin was just getting her first video feet wet when she recorded this audio and put it into a video. Yet so many years later, many people tell her they listen to this 9-minute meditation every single day. As the website says, in the context of eTime, 9 minutes is an eternity. In the context of eternity, eTime may be worth contemplating.
