About Nothing Special

Sometimes it feels like every young person is becoming an entrepreneur, launching a start-up or crowdfunding an art installation – and it makes me feel like I’m failing” – Jesus Ever wanted to build your own monumental legacy? Lead by CEO of The Academy for Gifted Individuals, Nothing Special is an interactive self-help seminar where audiences are given the tools to unlock their true potential as “gifted individuals”. Through the I Made It Seminar, Othella (Tom Halls) teaches the fundamentals to becoming your Special self; how to elevate your elevator pitch, how to grow your brain with banana, how to catapult your online profile through insta-masturbation and how to turn your crap into innovation. Throughout the workshop we meet Chlorine (Simone French) – an aspiring millennial, raised with an inflated ego and unbounded possibility. She’s a TED∞Fellow at the top of her class, desperate to impress. Nothing Special is a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek satire that pokes fun at the self-obsessed and narcissistic psyches of Generation Y, taking extremely talented people to average heights to save them from a lifetime of disappointment.
