From Bottom to Top is a ‘bite size’ documentary series, which aims to bring a new form of inspiration to you, at a very basic humanitarian level. We look beyond the art that inspires you, to the artist behind it and get to the core of what makes us tick, what makes us human. No matter our circumstances, where we sit with life’s challenges, we believe we are all connected by the same passions and dreams

Be it a Musician from Skid Row, an Art Student, an emerging Director or an acclaimed A-List Actor or Writer. From Bottom to Top explores what connects us and in turn inspires us. Through this docu-series we will uncover the core passions that drive us all as we pair up artists of differing backgrounds to interview each other, drawing from 20 identical passion based questions. Each episode will share lively conversations between emerging and celebrity artists; comedians, actors, directors, painters, dancers, musicians and writers, along side a Skid Row artist, in passionate ‘one on one’ conversations.

Think, your dose of humanity in the vein of ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ , Variety’s ‘Actors on Actors’ crossed with the powerful impact of ‘Humans of New York’.
