Paints the subtle realities that exist in the world’s of other people that I observe as I go about my own journey, with the goal of showing that we all have similar fears, hopes, and desires that transcend our actual crafts. The storyline follows me as I go about a typical Sunday involving Boxing and Music, but extends into the worlds of those around me. It’s a hybrid of a music video and short film that lets the viewer into the worlds of some inspirational, untold stories of individuals in Boston by profiling them and their crafts. This includes: a boxer, a comedian, an entrepreneur, a community activist, a singer, a videographer, and myself.
I have a personal training session with one of the boxing coaches in the ring from 10 - 11 a.m., with a sparring session at the end. From there, we’ll film me training weights and cardio with my friend (the marine) as well as capture B-Roll. We’ll interview him as well during this time, around the corner from the gym, once we have all the training shots out of the way.

Running scenes in Boston
Footage of me running in distinctly different areas of the city/suburbs/woods, to paint the vision of seeing many diverse aspects of life. Open to ideas on this, locations that come to mind are: Harvard Bridge, Boylston Street, The North End, Mission Hill, South Boston, and Norfolk (for woods + suburbs) near the barbershop.
Each role will have an individual profile done on them, with length determined by what they have to share. Goal of the profiling is to have them give a glimpse into their world: why they do what they do, what they’re afraid of it, and what they’re trying to accomplish. I’ve included 12 people, which we’ll trim down to 5.
RAPPER | Producer
We can do my profile anywhere, anytime. I’ll spit a verse acapella for it as well.
