Mask the Movie: 99 Word Flash

Posted on

On October 21, Charli Mills (@Charli_Mills) prompted us thus:

In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a final resting place.

Here is what I came up with:

Mask: Passion that Rises From the Ashes

When locked in a cage opposite your dreams, you can survive any fight-long after you’re laid to rest.

The documentary entitled Mask unearthed Charles “Mask” Lewis (1963-2009), immortalizing his message over the course of eighty-three minutes.

As the face behind MMA’s leading apparel at its founding (1997), “Mask,” along with “Punkass” (Dan Caldwell) and “Skyskrape” (Timothy Katz), brandished a logo synonymous with mixed martial arts. Deeper than any stitches embroidering the iconic symmetrical symbol, Lewis arduously pressed to credit his message rather than his pocketbooks: potential above performance.

Using MMA as a medium, Lewis’ passion infinitely integrates all lifeforms.

    Passion that rises from the Ashes gets me in. I have a feeling it would have me scared witless.

    This is a great line: “Deeper than any stitches embroidering the iconic symmetrical symbol…”
