Director Statement

Talent and skill on their own only gets you so far. Achieving success is less about how talented you are, and more about how hard you are willing to work.

Representation is important. When you look up at a movie screen and the only people who look like you are thugs and gangbangers, then it's going to program you to think that all you could ever be is a thug or a gangbanger. I want to change that. The films lead is Hispanic, the 2 personal trainers he works with in the film are Black and Asian, people from all backgrounds are showcased and all of them are providing a positive example to those around them. I want to challenge stereotypes and change the way people look at someone different than them.
