Validation is a short film that uses the phenomenon of free parking with validation to reinforce the power of positivity. The 16-minute film stars TJ Thyne as a parking validation attendant with a preponderance to see the best in people. His innate ability to genuinely compliment strangers drives the short film along.

Validation has won top awards at a number of film festivals, and it's no wonder. It isn't easy to talk to strangers, much less compliment them, but the effects of this positivity are incredible. Validation was written, directed and composed by Kurt Kuenne. Stats for Positivity Towards Strangers Trending: Older & Warm
