The Last Lesson is a short film about the final boxing lesson from an esteemed boxing trainer and a young aspiring boxer. 15-year-old Sofia is given a lesson unlike any other lesson at her local gym, in a hope to keep her inspired to pursue her dreams.

I was working in East Oakland on a video project with the East Oakland Boxing Association and decided to do a creative project that would not only fulfill a creative itch but also highlight the gym and the good work it does for the community. The project was filmed in a total of four days spanning a two-month period (I had to go back home in between scheduled shoots). All the actors are from various places in the Bay Area.
