    Brandon Todd is 5’5’’ and he can dunk. He has never believed his height to be a limitation but an opportunity to change how people view small athletes. Brandon transformed his body over the course of a few years, gaining over 80 lbs of muscle, increasing his vertical to over 45 inches. Todd hopes to teach others that through hard work and perseverance physical limitations can be overcome. www.fivefivedocumentary.com Director: Chris Jurchak Producer: Aaron Hill Lighting Director and Colorist: Anthony Jacoway Cinematographer: Rob Ruscher Composer: Kevin Burnes www.kevinburnes.com Camera Operator: Chad Vossen Key Grip: Kelsey Peters Production Assistant: Andrew Morris Executive Producers: Tristan Pelligrino and Chad Vossen Ambient Sounds: “Somewhere Between Night And Sky” (by A.M)http://freemusicarchive.org/music/AM/WHNZ1NYMI/03_Somewhere_Between_Night_And_Sky_by_AM Special Thanks to: 522 Productions www.522productions.com ikan Corp www.ikancorp.com Camera: Sony FS700, Canon 7D, GoPro3

                      I teamed up with Andrew Chuplis (founder of Train Elite) to create something both crude and sexy for his new brand. I believe there is nothing more attractive than the human body at peak condition, a beauty that is slowly becoming the societal norm. It was a pleasure being introduced into the fitness industry and am excited to create many more within.
