You've got to start somewhere if you want to be top dog.

FILM'S CONCEPT

Synopsis

It's "Creed" meets "Top Gun," as high school wrestler Chris Torres pursues his dream to fly jets at the U.S. Naval Academy.

He’ll need to win a state championship, while navigating the challenges of his senior year, including his girlfriend going to West Point, a nemesis they call Kid Hulk, and Navy SEAL trainers that stand in his way.

With all the drama and action, will Chris achieve his goal of becoming a Navy fighter pilot?

 

This feature film will be shot principally on location in the Outer Banks of NC and the surrounding area, highlighting the beautiful scenery and attractions of the region. Inspired by real events and to stay authentic, the producers plan to utilize local and regional talent for key roles, with the goal of creating an exciting movie the whole family can enjoy.
