The Story

A short documentary following the dreams of kids playing little league baseball in the backyard of the New York Yankees.


Like every kid dreams,

It's the bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, two outs, full count...

We want to tell the story about those dreams.

Our Mission


Values

We are inspired by honest stories over manipulated stories. We believe authenticity is what people can relate to. And ultimately we believe stories connect communities and inspire change.

Our mission is to inspire kids to chase their dreams and for anyone watching to reconnect with the spirit of youthful ambition, captured through cinematic storytelling.

And also we want to create this project because its fun.


Community

Stories build communities.

We are telling this story to build a community of not just Yankee or baseball fans, but a community of people who truly share our values of ambition. We want to reignite the feeling of passion in people's souls.

We will plan a social media campaign, pitch this story to partner organizations (like the social media teams for the Little League World Series and the New York Yankees), and plan a film festival circuit. Simply put we will hustle this story from the grass roots level.


Style

Passion. Authenticity. Dream. Soulful. Contradiction. Transformation.

We will capture these emotions through a Verité style of documentary filmmaking. Our shooting philosophy will be centered on making our subjects feel as comfortable as possible, observing or directing when necessary. Music and colors will be edited with the goal to bring out and enhance raw emotions through a beautifully natural and subtle style.
