Sensitive-The Untold Story has been told. We had a full house at the world premiere on Sept. 10 at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, CA and people from 56 countries watched it on live stream. Our Facebook feed is still blowing up with comments from people around the world how this film changed their lives. Sensitive–The Untold Story is the first of the series and is based on Dr. Elaine Aron’s findings. In 1991 Dr. Aron made a breakthrough discovery: an innate trait of high sensitivity. Since then, her international bestseller “The Highly Sensitive Person” has been translated into 18 languages and her research is published in top-tier peer reviewed journals such as The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and Brain and Behavior, as well as replicated and extended by other scientists. Dr. Aron found that not only 1 in 5 people are highly sensitive, but the trait occurs in the same percentage in over 100 other species. The trait has been proven through genetic and fMRI studies.  Sensitive-The Untold Story features 7-time Grammy winning singer/songwriter/activist Alanis Morissette. Her music is also in the film.

Sensitive-The Untold Story was produced by Emmy award-winning hybrid transmedia company GlobalTouch Group, Inc (GTG) (known for Oprah’s Daytime Show, Behind The Music w/Lenny Kravitz, marketing/ad campaigns for Uniworld, Westin, U.S. Army)

Alanis wrote in a letter to Dr. Elaine Aron:

” bless you for writing the book
and bless you for making this film

it is an honor to have been a part of it, and to be part of this generous outreach to so many HSP’s and their loved ones.
such a major contribution to the world.

congratulations on a truly stunning documentary…. to you and your whole team

Alanis”

The Oculus technology gives you a virtual experience of their latest super ship Maria Theresa. It is a surreal experience, seriously- beyond imagination.

The entire Uniworld project was also filmed with 6K Red Dragon, 4K Black Magic and HD drones- all creating a spectacular outcome.

75 percent of current online traffic will come from video within the next two years

Entrepreneurs typically operate with lean budgets and aggressive goals. So they should never pass up an opportunity to educate, build awareness or provide an offer to a potential customer. Sales should always be “up front and center.” The use of video is growing every minute.  READ MORE

ALANIS MORISSETTE & SENSITIVE

We have completed principal photography for our latest feature documentary SENSITIVE-THE UNTOLD STORY. The filming took place in United States, Canada, Switzerland, Denmark and Germany and included interviews with world renowned scientists, cinematic reenactments and real stories of  real people from all walks of life, including 7-time Grammy award winning singer, songwriter Alanis Morissette. Her compelling story and music will be featured in the film.

SENSITIVE–THE UNTOLD STORY is based on the findings of Dr. Elaine Aron, psychologist and the author of the international bestseller “The Highly Sensitive Person”.  Dr. Aron identified the temperament trait of high sensitivity 20 years ago and since then it has been scientifically proven through MRI and genetic studies. She found that 20% of the population are highly sensitive.

NELSON MANDELA

Mandela’s message of love and forgiveness is best reflected in this quote: “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite”.

GTG IN UKRAINE

Some photos from GTG’s current film production with fine artist Tovkailo in Kiev, Ukraine. We filmed multiple scenes at the two world famous locations that date back to the 11th century- St. Sophia Cathedral and Kiev Pechersk Lavra monastery and caves. It was the first time in history these sites granted permission to a non-religious film production of this caliber.
