Have you ever prayed for something your whole life?
The Warm Up is an animated short film created by Handel Eugene and featuring the spoken words of Jermaine Cole. This film is dedicated to anyone who has a dream, as a reminder that no matter the challenge, dreams are still within reach. To those who have a burning fire within, and are just getting warmed up.
Synopsis: A piano that lives in two distinct worlds that represent two very different stages of life. One represents the reality of our initial pursuits, dry and barren where we often don't reach our full potential. The other is our dream, full of elegant life and harmony. The question is do we stay where we're at, content within with in our comfort zone or do we rise to reach our goal?
- Animation/Direction: Handel Eugene
- Sound Design: Joe Liptock
- Music Composed By: J. Cole
J. Cole recorded this song on his second mix tape as the intro to "The Warm Up" back in '09. At the time, he had only a dollar and a dream, awaiting a deal. Now he's a signed artist under Roc Nation with his highly anticipated sophomore album debuting soon.
