The story behind the film

I came up with this idea in 2005 around my Senior Year of High School and really continued to perfect it my Freshman Year of Film School when I had a Screenwriting Professior tell me it showed a lot of promise and potential. But I felt I wasn’t ready to tell a story of this quality, my skills weren’t sharp enough to pull this off so it mostly set in my Laptop for about 15-16 Years.

Around 2020 I was ready to make my first Feature and I had the budget to make it from a Production Company but Covid hit and they pulled out and I was back to squared one sort of speak. I met with my Producing Partner Armando Townsend and we both agree to do a Concept Short and play it on the festival circuit and build the word of mouth from there. So I took the little money I had from Paychecks and Armando funded the rest and we went and shoot it in the middle of the Black Lives Matter protest and Heart of Covid-19 in June 2020. Which was a mission of it’s own lol.
