THE NEW BREED Film

This is the film I have been waiting for! THE NEW BREED is a documentary film that follows the rise of a new type of business person – The Social Entrepreneur(aka a Causeartist😀). The film captures the journey of three compelling millennials as they start businesses to tackle social and environmental issues; including Poverty, Homelessness and Environmental Pollution.

The Social Entrepreneurs:


Kohl Crecelius, co-founder of KNOWN SUPPLY, an apparel company based in Costa Mesa, California, empowers women in Uganda and Peru through education, mentorship and a steady income to rise out of poverty.

Janna Hart, founder of BONFOLK, a one-for-one sock company based in New Orleans, Louisiana, donates a pair of socks to someone in need with every pair of socks sold.

Ben, David and Kevin, co-founders of BUREO, a plastic recycling company based in Ventura, California, collect discarded fishing nets off the coast of Chile and transform them into functional new products like skateboards, surf fins and eyewear.

THE NEW BREED is a hybrid documentary with no talking heads, no interviews and no voice-overs. All dialogue comes from authentic meetings each entrepreneur has with their stakeholders around the world.
