About this project
I want to tell you the story of Tupac Amaru Shakur - as you know, he was one of the most influential artists ever seen, an artist who was tragically murdered before his time, and yet this story has not yet been told.
You now have a chance to see what his life was like, through the eyes of his closest allies, those who lived and worked with him.
Tupac is revered by many music fans as an incredible artist, a dreamer and a poet, but did you know that:
● He was finalizing a three picture movie deal immediately before his death?
● He had already sent a resignation letter to Death Row Records at the time of his passing.
● Tupac’s “checkered” past is completely understandable when you know his life circumstances. Remember, There’s no saint without a past and no sinner without a future.
● Tupac was a true humanitarian, he truly made a difference in the lives of others around him. You will see this in the movie.
● He thought politicians were the biggest gangstas, and he had plans to go into politics, in order to clean it up, later in life.
● He was a strong supporter of charities such as A Place Called Home, a charity that caters to at risk youth.
● Pac was full of energy, full of life, and un-relenting. He had an incredible work ethic, as you will see in this film when you see never-before seen home movies of Pac in his natural environment.
● Pac wanted to share a candid view of his life with you, which is why he told me to grab my camera and record everything he did for the last few months of his life.
You see, many people think they know everything there is to know about Tupac; they know his music, they know he has sold over 75 million albums (and his albums are still selling well today), fans know his work as an actor in movies, and they even know the great documentaries that have been made about him since his demise. But despite all of that, it amazes and saddens me that his fans are still to this day in the dark, about this last days of life.
Those 7 days remained a secret… until now.
You can bring Tupac’s story to life today. You, right now, are the most important person to Tupac because you are going create Pac’s unreleased documentary. You may not know me, but I met Pac and worked with him for the last 8 months of his life. He and I became close and Pac agreed to let me film him in those crucial last months. I considered Pac my friend, my brother and my leader. And after Pac was shot in Vegas, I was one of only a handful of people who were with him in the hospital in Las Vegas.
The chilling details of Pac’s last 7 days are unknown to most fans. Those 7 days were surreal, infested with FBI informants. Gut-wrenching nights spent with Pac drifting in and out of consciousness. You would be stunned to hear about the vicious death threats sent to Pac in his weakened state, and yet the Vegas Police Department refused to cooperate - the whole experience was nerve-shattering.
And yet what happened during those 7 days has remained a secret, until now. You see, Pac wanted you to see the real him, this is why he hand-picked me to follow him around with my camera and document his life. You and I were robbed of more than just his music when his life was tragically cut short, you were robbed of the story he wanted to tell you. But it doesn’t have to be that way…
You will be a part of Pac’s story today by joining us in creating the 7 DAYZ documentary. I thank you for your help in the only way I know how, by giving you access to a jackpot of never-before-seen 2Pac photos, audio files, photo books, posters, video and audio that the general public will NEVER see. This is our “thank you” for helping to tell the world about 2Pac’s story. I think you are going to love the home movies Pac made, they reflect on all aspects of his personality, some are fun, others are serious, and above all, they are inspiring.
Now is your time. You are now a part of history, thank you for helping us to allow the world into Tupac’s inner sanctum. Remember, Tupac’s 7 DAYZ story is more than just the last days in the hospital, you will see never-released footage from Pac’s every-day life, interviews with some of Tupac’s inner circle, many of Pac's friends who have never spoken to anyone before now. This is truly the first opportunity for you to see Pac as he lived through his eyes. I cannot wait for you to see and feel the 7 DAYZ experience.
p.s. Remember, 7 DAYZ is an opportunity for you to tell Tupac’s story to the world, a story that has yet to be told. We want you to see the interviews, photos and video footage in the 7 DAYZ members area DO FOR LOVE, that has never been seen or heard before. Today is your opportunity to get a piece of the 7 DAYZ story. This film is for you, all you have to do is join the 7 DAYZ crew. Also, a portion of all proceeds of this film will go to TASF.ORG, Pac's charity, because that is what Pac would want.
Thank You, and I hope to thank you in person at the 7 DAYZ premiere!
Risks and challenges
Every film project has a risk of coming up against production obstacles. The most common problem is not having the resources to complete the film. The beauty of the 7 Dayz project is that I have more than enough never-before-seen footage to complete the movie. Today on YouTube there are several pirated snippets of this footage, and these clips have been viewed by 252,074 Tupac fans and counting. I am excited to share this footage with Tupac fans, and we have more than enough to complete several movies. The majority of the 7 Dayz footage is already shot and simply waiting for editing. There will be some additional interviews, but I have so much raw movie footage for 7 Dayz, there will be no problems coming up with enough footage for the movie.
The beauty of this project is that the team and all the individuals wanting to be a part of it are eager to see this come to fruition. I personally have being fortunate enough to work in film production for the past 17 years. I have had the pleasure of working with Yoko Ono, Snoop Dogg and Trent Reznor, to name a few. I have also created commercials for some of the worlds largest brands, such as SHELL, NESTLE and BUTTERFINGER.
It is exciting for me to share this Tupac footage with the fans, it is about time we see Tupac as he was in his natural environment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
