Producing The Shallow

To cut the young off from a living past was to deprive them of a profound and stabilizing understanding of life, of themselves. To immerse them with one another, the private space of the teen's bedroom now a bustling social space open for business all night long, was to ramp up peer pressure like crazy. To neglect the masterpieces of art and ideas, epic events and larger-than-life personages, was to level their enjoyments to the mundane.
