Through the ‘I Made It’ Seminar, Othella (Tom Halls) teaches the 5 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, how to turn your crap into innovation and how to build your own monumental legacy. Throughout the workshop we meet Chlorine (Simone French) – an aspiring millennial, raised with an inflated ego and unbounded possibility. She’s a TEDx Fellow at the top of the class who’ll give herself permission to shine… Nothing Special holds up a harsh absurdist mirror, exposing the self-obsessed and narcissistic psyches of generation Y, taking extremely talented people to average heights to save them from unrealistic expectations, and a lifetime of disappointment.
