A Note from Jake Jaxson:
I fist met Levi via Skype-- Dewayne in SD
put him on my radar saying Levi was looking for a studio. What struck me most about Levi was that he knew exactly what he wanted and clearly laid out his goals and ambition. I was in love! I have a soft spot for boys who "have a plan"!
Since then we have become close friends-- I'm even his pup Bella's god father. We have worked on many projects together but none like this film.
During our first shoot together I noticed that Levi was always walking around with is laptop with the screen open-- it was always with him. And when he was not with me or the other models, he was outside or in his room-- with his computer. I soon discovered why: he was recording his everyday goings-on, or making little video clips of his dance moves and cheer routines (we was a college cheerleader before an injury sidelined him). Some of the first clips he showed me were of him playing with my dogs Jackson and Bailey! Over time he showed me more and more-- him hanging out with friends, his new puppy, being with his BF, trying out his new hooks, the cinnamon challenge, sleeping, jacking-off, and even making breakfast... Naked! Most of it just the stuff we all do everyday. And while watching I was mezmorized by the perfect realness of it all. Let's face it, the the word "reality" has no meaning anymore, but what I was watching WAS REAL! And as I watched hours and hours of Levi's life-- his everyday, his most private, his moods, his happiness and sadness... His let-downs and victories... I could not help but to think about my life: where I came from, where I am now, and the hope and possibility of my life to come.
Form the hundreds of hours of his footage, Levi and I created FUCK YEAH LEVI KARTER. This film is just one small slice of what I call "a life worth living!" Taken from a moment in time.
Levi never intended his video diaries to become a film, and was surprised I even suggested it. For that, I thank him for allowing me the honor of creating and collaborating with him to chronicle what I believe to be glimpse into a real reality. When I asked him why he wants to record everything, he said with out hesitation, "I like to go back and watch the good parts of my life. It makes me happy."
