JuVee Productions' THE BRINK reminds us that we have nothing to fear but fear itself

by Cyrus Webb

Emmy award-winner Viola Davis is a true visionary and with Julius Tennon she has created JuVee Productions, a company that is all about promoting creativity and allowing important issues and stories to be told. This is definitely seen in their newest original short The Brink.

I don't want to give too much of it away but the storyline is one that all of us can relate to when it comes to going for what we want in life and wondering if 1) we are capable of achieving it and 2) are worthy of it. Written and starring Kaylon Hunt, we are able to see the simple truth: unless we go for whatever it is that we desire we will never know what is possible.

One of the most powerful lines in the short film is this: "It's your own fear that is holding you back, but only if you let it." The next time you feel as though you can achieve something or that a goal is out of your reach I hope you will reflect on those words, and then face your fear head-on.

Captivating and so inspiring from beginning to end, THE BRINK reminds us that we have nothing to fear but fear itself.
