Quibi is attracting top talent for its streaming platform including a docu-series from Lebron James.
Founded by Lebron James, the I PROMISE School opened its doors in 2018 in an effort to close the education gap of those living in the future hall of famer’s hometown of Akron, Ohio. I PROMISE is the inspiring documentary that chronicles what young students can achieve if given an opportunity.
Directed by Marc Levin, the series was filmed over a course of a year and explores the dynamic impact the I PROMISE educational environment had on the students, teachers, and families. No Film School sat down with executive producer and cinematographer Daniel B. Levin, who also shot Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, to detail his experience on the project and what it was like telling a story for Quibi, a new streaming platform that can display unique vertical and horizontal content .
