I Still Have A Soul Boxing

Filming duo Contraband presents “I Still Have A Soul”, a spec promo commercial for HBO Boxing. The advertisement/short film centers on a homeless man who is looking to better himself, raising money every which way he can in order to pay for training as a boxer at a local gym. We get glimpses of his life on the streets, his makeshift sleeping accommodations near train tracks, and the various means he uses to make a living, or in this case to graduate to some semblance of a livelihood in the boxing ring.

    Very powerful video. I cannot get enough of it. As a former athlete and father of athletes and an aspiring filmmaker, I find this short piece to be very inspiring. I watch it before every training session. Keep up the good work. Where can I find the soundtrack that accompanies this video?
