With the help of his older, paraplegic brother, sixteen year old DELVIN prepares for an upcoming track meet in the wake of a family tragedy. While often caught up in the middle of fights between family members, Delvin finds an outlet in his music. Flow is a proof of concept short for the dramatic feature.
I wanted to make a slice of life movie about starting over and powering through a tough situation with the help of music.
Growing up, I used music and movies to help get through dysfunctional family situations as well as many surgeries on my leg - due to a benign tumor and a birth defect on my left foot. Even though I was never physically impaired as Caleb, who is paraplegic, I can at least relate to some of the helpless feelings he goes through.
A lot of the times I was in my own world, a lot like Delvin. I was always creating music and escaping to a world of my own - observing my family from the back.
As a fan and friend of Danezion Mills, I wanted to work with him. We both bonded quickly over each other’s talents and interest in music. Through him I was able to view through a different lens into a similar world that I was raised in. Together, we formed a family that touches on issues involving addiction, grief, and redemption.
