I am honored to have Produced this film with Jeffrey Allard and very proud to have co-directed the film. Brian Niles did an amazing job editing the film and also directing it with Grant Korgan. This was a team effort and it couldn't have been done with out an extraordinary group of people...
Obviously Grant and Shawna Korgan are amazing people and their story is extraordinary! Special shout out to Mike Shaw and Todd Berardi. Mike's creativity was a huge help early on when he and I began to re-write the film during the "rebirth" of the project and Todd and his company HiBall Energy were hero Executive Producers.
Also, special thanks to Roy Tuscany who came up with the films idea and to his High Fives Foundation (www.highfivesfoundation.org) which helped train and inspire Grant and Shawna along the way!

Let us begin by saying that we are moving along with our feature film FRISCO BOMBERS
The United States experiences epidemic levels of gun violence, and we hope to use our film as a tool to not only put a face on this issue, but to educate and inspire our youth.
We are scheduled for a WINTER 2019 Start day!
If you are interested in investing in a feature film that will provide a positive and social impact that can not only educate, but empower our youth... please let us know!
Co-written by the very talented Antwone Fisher, the film is based on the tragic true story of an inner city youth football team, coming up in the 90’s in Bayview-Hunters Point, and how the game on the field becomes a game of life and death on the streets.
This dynamic fact-based inspirational story about the life and journey of Michael Hill, a humble young man and promising athlete from San Francisco’s most troubled neighborhood, Bayview-Hunter's Point. With his mother in jail for murder, Michael is raised by his grandmother and sister and becomes a teen football hero whose life and professional prospects are cut short by ill‐fated and senseless gun violence.
The contrast between the protagonist’s upbringing in Hunters Point and where he’s later confined to Group Home counseling in Boonville, CA, a predominantly white farming community, is remarkable, along with a relationship that develops between him and a young lady he meets there. This is a true story of triumph and tragedy, taking us on a journey of redemption.
We just signed Oakland Tech graduate, Rockmond Dunbar, to direct our feature film. Not only is he passionate to direct because this story resonates with that of his own upbringing.
