This project was my personal project dedicated to my favourite baseball player Ichiro Suzuki. He has inspired me in every level of professionalism and wanted to create something that shows my respect.
The short is about the fear while you are in the batter box. The broken bat represents lost confidence and challenges that you need to over come within the split second. The sci-fi space look represents his nick name “Area 51″.
Big thanks to Image Engine for letting me use their facility and all the friends who has helped or inspired me to make this short!!
