Although it was only released a short time ago, the short film How To Get Over A Breakup has already been successful enough that the people behind it have decided to turn it into a web series. Creator Krishna Kumar, who’s been creating video shorts for years, has set up up an Indiegogo campaign in the hope of making more episodes.
In the meantime we have the original short film, a mix of high drama and comedy, which sees Kumar opposite some other Youtubers, such as Jared, Red Melvin, Davey Wavey and Miles Jai, trying to get some tips on how to get over a bad breakup. You can watch the film below.
Kumar told Huffpo, “Understandably, many people feel profoundly alone after the end of a romantic relationship and some give up on love as a form of extreme escapism to protect themselves from future heartbreak. What’s interesting is that when people deny themselves this integral part of life, it hurts not just themselves but also those around them. ‘How to Get Over a Breakup’ was made to support people through the struggles of a breakup whilst keeping their hearts open to new experiences. In today’s society of having instant gratification, it’s important to note that happiness takes varying amounts of time. It is not attained through someone else. Lasting happiness is intrinsic. It is exponential; it begets itself.”
