PROJECT: I OVERCOME PROJECT
WORK: WRITER, DIRECTOR, CINEMATOGRAPHER, EDITOR
These short films are part of a 4-piece documentary style project I completed titled “I OVERCOME”. The premise was to follow four friends of mine in expressive and performative careers and tell their story along with how they overcome their challenges along the way. Each story is unique, each has its own style. Nathan People and I collaborated on creating “PAIN” a poem he wrote that we created a visual style for. With Joey Kaotyk we created "BREAKDANCE" which chronicles the preparation to make it in the underground hip hop world. Matt Steffanina shared his story in "CHOREOGRAPHY" of his small town upbringings to making it in the big city of Los Angeles. Finally, the story of Rekstizzy in "RAPPING" follows a musician's passion to make it, even when it seems like time is running out.
