The Team


MoeKnowsBest - Behind the Scenes

These days it seems like everyone wants the fame without actually doing anything to deserve it. Reality TV has made stars out of nobodies, breeding an "I could be next" mentality among an entire generation. The aftermath: the flood of shameless self-promotion via social media, that is, at best, an illusion of substance. While I am the first to admit that exposure has its value, that exposure means nothing if you don't have the character, talent, drive, and quality work to back it up.
