MTV Catfish star Max Joseph has announced controversial new documentary series Charismatic Thinker.
The provocative first episode, titled DICKS, takes a look at whether you need to be a “dick” in order to be a great leader.
Filmmakers Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth), Peter Berg (Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day), Randall Poster (Music Supervisor on all your favorite movies), John Hamburg (Meet the Parents, I Love You, Man), and Karyn Kusama (The Invitation, “Billions”), as well as writers Robert Greene (The 48 Laws of Power), Aaron James (Assholes: A Theory) and Adam Grant (TED speaker and bestselling author of Originals) are all interviewed during the series.
Writer and director Max says:”I’ve spent way too much time over the years fantasising about making these visual essays which I hope are fun personal explorations into the themes or ideas I’m grappling with.
“What I like so much about Vero—the app and the community—is that it offers the perfect venue to share my work and myself with like-minded, curious people, and without the negativity and hate that can come in other online forums.
“But what I really appreciated most was Vero’s respectful hands-off approach in allowing me to just do my thing no matter what weirdness it led me to.
“It’s rare to be given total creative freedom and an exciting proposition for all artists across the board. “Excited to make more and see what others do with the opportunity.”
The series is available exclusively on new social network Vero.
