A Letter From The Filmmaker
Dear Athletes and Artists (current and former),
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 nationwide movement that encourages creativity, freedom, and positivity as the foundations of greatness and positive mental health. I am personally invested in this cause, and I am asking you to join me in support.
The film’s distributor, AOS, and I have joined with the Positive Coaching Alliance and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America to underwrite screenings for underprivileged sports teams and groups across the country.
Although screening costs vary by location, we suggest the following category levels as a guide, and urge you to contribute as best you can. Your contribution will provide opportunity and encourage creative freedom.
$2,500- Buys out a theater
$500- Takes a Club
$250- Supports a Team
$50- Supports a Group
Donations of all sizes are appreciated

With your support, we hope to spark positive change for the next generation of young athletes and artists.
Thank you for your contribution.
