Change The F*cking World

Longline:

A man caught in the wrong place, at the wrong time, must battle unthinkable odds to deliver a package, and not miss the most rewarding moment of his life.

Synopsis:

Robel Douglas is running out of time. He is a young man, on a mission. Clutched tightly under his heavily tatted arm is a suspicious package, with not so much as a scribble on it. Robel is in a hurry and the box must reach its destination on time. Only problem... Robel is on the run from the law.

Robel was involved in an armed robbery. People ended up dead… including a cop! Now, Robel is the target of a citywide manhunt, and the Police, led by Detective William Richard, a homicidal lunatic, would rather shoot him dead, than to hear his side of the story. Robel knows that the whole thing doesn’t look very good, but he will just have to worry about clearing his name later, because right now, all that matters is delivering the package.

Police pursue Robel throughout the city, as he finds himself in all kinds of dangerous and crazy situations, which he must carefully navigate to keep on track, and keep the delivery on schedule. As Robel finally reaches his destination, the police are closing in, and new details are emerging, regarding the armed robbery.

Will Robel make his delivery?

What is it that's in the package, anyways?

Will the truth become known before Detective Richard catches up with Robel and makes him just another statistic?

As the film reaches its' explosive climax, questions will be answered, and challenges will be issued, as we are forced to look at our society and the stereotypes that we continually allow to define it.

In 1994, at only sixteen, Judah Ray introduced himself to the entertainment world, by producing his first concert event; a show which ended up drawing thousands of people. From the beginning, he has defined himself as a true visionary. One of the originators of the Southern California EDM scene, he has worked alongside such legends as Pasquale Rotella (Insomniac), Disco Donnie (H.A.R.D.), and Jeff Ryan (Insomniac/Dreamstate), founder of Motive Events (Love Groove, 420 Festival), serving as a C.E.O, Producer, Promoter, DJ, Agent, and financier.

Judah Ray's passion for art, also led him to explore graphic design, during the early days of Adobe. He quickly established himself as one of LA's most sought-after artists, and it was at this point, that he began shifting his creative scope, to the field of professional photography, where his talent landed him jobs with industry giants, from Nokia to OneModelPlace.com.

Finally, Judah Ray set his sights on the film and television industry, starting as a P.A., and then working his way into the Art Department. In 2005 he produced his first feature film, One Among Us, starring James Russo (Django Unchained, Donnie Brasco, Fast Times at Ridgemont High).

It was at this point that he enrolled at the Los Angeles Film School.

He was the third student to ever graduate with perfect attendance and was the first Valedictorian the school has ever named.
