We emphasize stories that are engaging enough to pull people in and retain that interest; from there we aim to inspire and enable impact through subtly introducing important environmentally conscious themes. We lead with plot, story, and character – and weave the inspiring theme and an invitation to think/feel/act throughout, therefore attracting a broad audience through a fictional medium (TV series, feature films, and other media). We believe that if you lead with inspiration and bypass the story, the risk is that you don’t sufficiently attract and engage the mainstream audience.
Tabu's central theme is to subtly initiate thought toward the notion that we are a part of nature and a greater collective community and shouldn't aim to dominate or control either. There is a natural balance and harmony found in the world around us, that, if respected and protected, could cure future generations, if not us.
The Tabu Universe is comprised of a fictional comic series, a podcast series, and a television series. This page will give a glimpse into each. Scripted, award-winning episodes are available for each medium on request.
A portion of the Tabu world takes place in the Commonwealth, as well as the Amazon. The Commonwealth is a dystopian version of London. It's important to note this is not sci-fi, but rather a fictional glimpse at what our world would look like several generations from now if technology and certain areas of growth ceased today – leaving us, as a society, unable to devote resources to anything other than survival. And our survival was solely dependent on the medicinal healing only found in the Amazon -- an Amazon we should be cherishing instead of destroying. This is our "what if", or sadly "if only."
The Tabu Universe is my personal contribution to fighting for the Rainforest. I am a fiction writer/filmmaker and this is where my strength lies -- impacting an audience through story.
Protecting the Amazon for future generations is a huge thing in my personal sphere. Growing up with Native American relatives and a large, extended Gullah Geechee Family has given me a deep-rooted passion when it comes to Indigenous Cultures. Tabu was born from the notion of a "what if?" What if the medicinal and tribal mysteries were left undisturbed and what if they wound up being humanity's only chance at survival?
