Blue Shield is a promotional short film project shining the flashlight on the relationship between law enforcement and the community they've sworn to protect. Tona forces the conversation with powerful verse in song, poignantly sharing his perspective while the visuals help tell his tale. Each frame is as gritty as the story told. Directed by Ikenna Cesar Amaechi, edited by Nick Ginsberg & Ikenna Cesar Amaechi.
Tona and Ikenna have been friends since they were teenagers so it was only natural for them to collaborate on this project. On the morning of the shoot, the temperature was -25 Celsius, but the whole crew braved through the bone chilling winds and bitter cold to put together a visual everyone was proud of.
