This Is Not A Nice Sport

Wow.  Well, it's been about 2 years since we initially shot and edited this short documentary about an amateur boxer named Cesar Rocha.  Unfortunately I ran into a bit of a problem releasing this for public consumption over the last year or so.  It's too bad, because I thought this was a pretty nice story on a young man that I've grown to know so well over the past 3 or 4 years. 

When I look back on this piece now it feels dated and old.  Mostly because my abilities have progressed over the past few years.  I wish I would've been able to feel comfortable putting this out in the world earlier.  Yet, that's the way it goes sometimes. 

Either way, I hope you enjoy this piece I did just for the passion of story telling.  We didn't make any money on this, in fact, I submitted it to about 10 film festivals, and it only got into one.  Plus I had to pay for the usage of the gym.  So, this is all about the passion for story telling. 

Hope you enjoy.
