Dear hoops and/or indie film fan,

I'm @RYANBKOO and I'm making an independent feature film, MANCHILD, about a 13-year-old basketball player named TJ. The short you see here, AMATEUR, is about an older high school player -- it's a prequel to MANCHILD. The recruiter in this short shows up on TJ's doorstep and that's where the full movie begins...

If you liked this short and want to see the feature please help us out by doing three simple things:
