BEATBOX is an independent dramatic feature set in Manhattan featuring a young man who discovers his talents as a Beatbox musician.
Set in Brooklyn– New York’s musical epicenter– the film follows Pete (20s), an underdog hero, a DJ and musician whose day job is delivering beer for his girlfriend’s family business. But, come night, Pete is in his makeshift home recording studio, where he lays down beats. He meets Stone, a mysterious record company owner, who introduces Pete to the world of Brooklyn beatboxing, and to the lovely singer and beatboxer Rye. The film culminates at the country’s beatbox championship competition, where performers face off, and also collaborate.
