Director Statement

“Love Still Remains” is an edgy short film equipped with all the flashy camera moves and lighting cues typically found in a high intensity sports promotion. Nevertheless, at its core, it is the story of unconditional love. Cole Freeman, a black teenage athlete, is always the center of attention. The roaring crowds and cameras watching his every move is his common reality. The crucial final shot launched to win the game is the moment everyone has been waiting for. Yet, when the moment is over, and the crowd disappears, there is only one person that is still there: his father. This story stands in contrast to the mentality found in popular culture. The ideology that you’ll only receive love when you succeed is one that causes isolation within society. The act of encouraging and cherishing someone, despite their failure, is an honorable one. Win or lose, true love will always remain.
