The following article is reposted from John Schilling's article in The Brooklyn Vanguard.
It was almost a year ago that Dapo Ibrahim, a student senator at Brooklyn College, was running for USG President in hopes of addressing student safety and advocating for transparency amidst the COVID-19 breakout that took the world by storm.
At the same time, Ibrahim was hard at work as the director, producer, and writer for a film that had been delayed due to the unforeseen changes brought on by the pandemic. Ultimately, Ibrahim was not elected USG President, but his film would come to be just a few months later.
The film is still awhile away, but enjoy this special first look at The Legend of King Kong. You think you know Kong? Think again, and take a trip into Skull Island to witness the beginnings of The eighth wonder of the world!
Freedom Is Fake is now available to watch for free on YouTube! I had a blast working on this one with director Crisana Speer. The soundtrack is also available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other music streaming services. See if you can spot my main theme popping up in various forms throughout the film!
Director Crisana Speer and I first connected in early February 2021 about a potential project together. She was searching for a composer on her upcoming short film, and after listening to my music for Star Wars: A New Score, she expressed an interest in working together. 3 months later, and we've arrived at the release of Freedom Is Fake, a dystopian short film.
