An adventure began. What I learned that spring, I learned from Shabazz. He tirelessly was striving for his dream, each and every day a hustle. It was impressive to say the least. It was my first real glimpse at an actor who was consistently striving and winning every single day small and big battles for his dream. He was pursuing multiple avenues with vigor which essentially all lead to some sort of notoriety, if not by the masses.... right away, at least by his peers and colleagues. On top of writing, directing, producing, being the DP, sound guy, gaffer, actor, he made it his mission to be a friend. To go the extra mile to offer technical and career advice. He even was willing to pitch me and other actors in his movie to an agent.
I'd like to introduce you to Shabazz Ray and what he's built over the past year almost completely by himself, with the exception of a few friends, actors and a hell of an uncle.
Please check out the trailer for The Long Short.
