I’m very excited to inform everyone of my latest project. As most of my friends know I’ve been spending most my time a freelance cinematographer; hopping on one project after another, helping other filmmakers and directors achieve the stories they wanted to tell. It’s been amazing ride taking me to 5 out of the 7 continents, interacting with people of all ethnic backgrounds, and telling powerful stories that are literally changing people lives. However, It wasn’t until recently that I begun to wonder what kind of story it would take for me to hop into the directors’ chair, to tell a story that I wanted to tell and pursue wholeheartedly.
Well, after several months of careful research, phone calls, and prayers, I’m excited to share with you the story/subject of my first film! It’s a short documentary about Kenny Sailors, the man who invented and perfected the jump shot in basketball. Although, there are others who are credited to jumping and shooting with a ball around the same era as Kenny, there’s no question his shot is the shot that’s being used in the game we know and love today. Not only do I intend to explain the origin of his historic shot, but also explore the things he’s determined to have true meaning in life throughout his 90 years on this earth. We wrapped up production in Wyoming this past week and will begin the post production shortly. Can’t wait to share more as the weeks go by!
