"So if you believe anything my husband says, I'm known to shed a few tears when it comes to emotional scenes.... However, the silence of the film only intensified those final tears shed by the star of this film. I felt every emotion as if I was experiencing it in real life next... Impeccable job by the actors!!! Definitely worth a watch."

"Oh my gosh this film was AMAZING! I was so stuck the whole time because my Husband always says ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS and thats the best way to describe this film. I felt connected to all the emotions flowing from the characters. This would be great to turn into a longer movie for sure this was VERY creative. I think the best part was the ending seeing as the boy was so much younger but he stayed so positive through everything they were going through and showed a real grown up side being there for his older sister just as much as shes there for him. It shows a valuable lesson and I honestly loved the whole thing."

"So much was communicated with so little words. So many layers. The themes tie us together in a way that reminds us of how vulnerable any of us can become. This is a real Humans of New York story; one that is the reality for too many. Great film!"

HYPE MAN: a break beat play we meet Verb, a young black man who hypes the crowd and Pinnacle, a white front man who writes and rhymes. They’ve been best buddies since they were kids, growing up together on the same mean streets. Now, with the addition of Peep One, a mixed- race, female beat maker, the trio is about to make it big as America’s next hip hop crew. But the shooting of an unarmed black man in their hometown throws them off their beat. Their friendship is tested. Their moral compass is challenged. HYPE MAN immerses audiences in a chilling conversation amongst the beats and rhymes of pulsating hip hop.
