Who you BUCKING with?! Ep. 77
In this Brothaspeak Podcast episode #77 we speak to famed choreographer & director Jamal Sims about his documentary WHEN THE BEAT DROPS, which is a bold and energetic documentary exploring "bucking," a dance subculture popular within the black LGBTQ community in the South.  Jamal Sims Jamal Sims is one of today’s most sought after choreographer/directors in the industry. Some of his recent projects include the fifth installment of the Step Up series, the acclaimed Microsoft “Surface/Surface Pro” tablet commercial, and the viral “Safety Video” hit for Virgin America. Jamal has also worked with Neil Patrick Harris as the Supervising Choreographer for RENT at the Hollywood Bowl. Now he features his well received documentary, When the Beat Drops. When the Beat Drops Defined by dynamic and unified movements and full of bold pageantry, fierce style, and undeniable form, “bucking” is a dance subculture that is slowly entering the mainstream. More than two decades old, it was created by African American gay men in the South as a response to being excluded from participation in majorette routines, due to homophobia and societal pressure. In When the Beat Drops—a feature documentary debut by famed choreographer Jamal Sims, whose credits include RuPaul’s Drag Race, So You Think You Can Dance, and Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour—the origins and evolution of bucking are explored, as are the life stories and struggles of various Atlanta performers. Doing what Paris Is Burning (Frameline14) and Rize did for ball culture and “krumping” respectively, When the Beat Drops offers an electrifying first cinematic glimpse into the phenomenon of “bucking,” featuring ecstatic dance sequences throughout the film. Anthony, a survivor of violence that threatened his ability to perform, is the creator of one of the leading bucking groups in the city; Flash is a radio personality with a gay mom who has been in and out of jail for half of his life; and Napoleon is a teacher who also runs a non-profit music advocacy group. Many of the performers risk corporate jobs to follow their passion for dance, build up the community, and remain true to themselves. And the candid conversations with team captains about issues and stigma within the community make the film truly shine. Presenting an intimate look at the performers’ dedication to their chosen families and their craft, When the Beat Drops culminates in an edge-of-your-seat, intense competition celebrating triumph, athleticism, and artistry.

Friends become enemies and enemies become friends because in this universe nothing is as it appears to be. Directed and edited by Perdell Richardson, an innovative and award-winning creator, director, producer and editor.  Aaron Johnson Levy - Creator Gay activist, actor and writer Aaron Johnson Levy turns to crowdfunding to produce a new web TV series "Out: A Saga"—a suspense-thriller project that showcases LGBTQ actors playing LGBTQ characters that are rarely seen on screen. In late 2017, Aaron Johnson Levy was cast in the feature film Hey, Mr. Postman (2018) which stars Omar Gooding, Paula Jai Parker and many other veteran actors. The production gave him an opportunity to play an openly gay character unlike any that he had ever seen on-screen. The experience inspired him to write the LGBT thriller known as "Out: A Saga".  Indiegogo.com IG:@celebrityaaron Contact: out@aaronjohnsonlevy.com Indiegogo An Indiegogo campaign was launched on March 4th, 2018 to raise the $2000 necessary to film the pilot episode. Like other crowdfunding sites, Indiegogo.com allows artists a set number of days to raise a designated amount of funding. Out: A Saga has a three-week fundraising window to reach the $2000 target. If the allotted budget isn't raised before March 23rd, 2018, Indiegogo will take an additional 4% of the pledges (totaling 9%) before releasing the accumulated funds to the artist.
