The Story Behind the Story...
SHARP is an independent film by Writer/Director Nick Conedera, inspired by his experience in direct sales selling Cutco cutlery for a company called Vector Marketing. Using the sales skills he learned selling knives, Nick went on to raise $222,000 to make the film to help strengthen our economy by developing young entrepreneurs, helping them discover their passion/purpose, and learning how to monetize their dreams. SHARP is a film about pushing yourself towards a goal, becoming the SHARPest version of yourself, following your dreams, and working for yourself in an ever-changing economic climate.
Our goal is to help ONE MILLION young artists and entrepreneurs grow into the most confident, capable, SHARPest versions of themselves by using film and media to teach the importance of sales skills. Our current economic system just isn’t working for the millennial generation. We believe it is in our country’s best interest to help youth culture learn how to go out on their own, start businesses, and follow their dreams, INSTEAD of working just to pay the bills. DEATH to the 9-5.
