Savage U with YBM Smoove

You know sometimes you plan something and have a vision and idea and its all plotted out and then all of a sudden the whole house comes down and you have to catch up. That is basically the story of Savage U. I contacted YBM Smoove earlier this summer with an idea to help promote the release of his new album “Wichita Savage University 2” and everything was go. Problem was that I didnt have time yet and I wanted to let him finish the project first. Fast Forward I cant ever seem to have enough downtime to really work with anyone and that be the only thing I have going. What I have yet to talk about and I will tease here is that I will soon be releasing art work for sale as well as People Collector merch but we will save that for another time but visit https://arowefilms.com/buynow. I have also been working on the podcast along with creating a new show and my usual doings with EFC. All of this made it hard to give Smoove a date and it has been a game of chase the mouse. Smoove opened for Cali’s controversial rap star Blueface and the way he talked the days leading and after I wasn’t sure if he realized how much things had just changed for him.

New Production(s) in works

Now its time to make a full return to the blog world as we have a few great announcements on projects that will be in production very soon to go along with the “in-production diaries” from previous projects. Getting right to the point Wi-Fi at Rock Bottom Second Edition is near completion and is currently in dealings with a publisher to bring a full immersive audiobook experience as well. We are working with another production entity to bring a new web-series to Wichita called “FROM THE GROUND UP” it will focus on the music scene of Wichita, Kansas in an interview style conversation that answers the questions of starting unknown and building up to a fan base and all the struggle and highlight in-between. We are looking for partnerships with some of the local business leaders to be involved and grab advertising spots for product placements. Contact us for more info.

Lastly, the most exciting thing I want to talk about is the new short-ish film I am working on called “the Trunk”. This will be the biggest in-production piece for the rest of the year.  I have written and will both act and direct my first Narrative film. More details to come in the production diaries but its an ambitious idea for me to put on so many new hats at once but its a task I think will pay off as many of my more industry friends have told me how strong the script is and it will come down to delivering good performances and final product. I can not wait to get back into the swing of things but as well there will be levels to this because one thing I have faced with tackling for the first time is funding and supporting a crew to make sure I can put together the best product possible.  New things and we are ready to get to a very busy summer.

Much love to all the people at the Doc Sunback Film Festival of Mulvane Kansas for choosing not one but two of our films for its event. With multiple screenings, I hope many of you locals in the Mulvane area can make time to catch one! Wifi at Bottom : Something About Meth has been met with so much praise by those it has connected with and Evolve or Die is one of the best in the David Rickels timeline. To make it easy we provided a graphic to let you know the screening times and locations if you can make it! As the norm for an aRowe Films films screening I attend there will be all kinds of goodies for  those in attendance and maybe even a surprise appearance from one of the two subjects! Hope to see you there!
