A Letter From The Filmmaker
Dear Athletes and Artists,
This is my most personal film. The themes it explores come directly out of my own experiences as a Division 1 Hockey Player and as a filmmaker striving to achieve excellence but struggling to conform to environments that stifled creativity and freedom of self-expression.
I realized that the athletes and artists who have inspired me most never compromised on their creative vision or their values. These icons, our real-world superheroes, reimagine what is possible, find joy in their creative process, and use their unique qualities to achieve the extraordinary.
Youth sports and child development is at a crossroads. As more kids join sports leagues and pursue the arts, the pressure to specialize comes at a younger age. Training hours increase, and kids lose the freedom to play.
My mission with this film is to inspire a movement that encourages creativity, freedom, and positivity as the foundations of greatness. With your support, we hope to spark positive change for the next generation of young athletes and artists.
