Three black women based in New York City have created a web series about millennial’s ‘Adultin’ and O-M-G viewers are going crazy.
Paulette Marte, Malique Daniels and Kayra Clouden are all creators of the ‘Adultin’ Web series, which premiered on YouTube and accurately depicts young adults ages 18-25 transitioning to the REAL WORLD through an unscripted/scripted lens.
Season one of Adultin’ focused on real stories from real people. “We had people fill out a google form and vetted them from their responses to each topic,” the Adultin Creators said.
The days where you had to wait to become an entrepreneur
are over. This unscripted/scripted series wants to help people get started on your own dreams and stand as a testament to anyone with a vision, idea or concept that it is possible to execute your project with the right attitude and team – and you can do it while you’re in your early 20’s.
During Season 1: The creators told LookWeAreIncluded.com
We didn’t discuss getting over the job hump this season but more about the struggles of having to balance your daily struggles of doing your laundry, buying groceries, and more.
Adultin Creators: We shot Adultin’ from Jan-April. First we started with unscripted which we shot over the course of 2 weekends, then each episode was shot from March – May 2019. The editing process varied per episode, but essentially we were in post between June – July 2019. The creators told us their skeleton crew consisted of a Director of Photography(DP), Producer, Director, and Production Assistant (PA) on set.
Each of the creators sat through the editing process to ensure their vision was presented properly.
AND SEASON 2: Oh Student Loans are a HOT TOPIC! #SneakPeak
