The film "9 Seconds" will chronicle the true story of Houston McTear, a one-in-a-billion athlete, who rose from poverty to worldwide fame after tying the world record in the 100-yard dash while in high school during the fall of 1975. But his promising career was upended by injuries, a famous con man, and the US boycott of the 1980 Olympic Games. He then descended into homelessness and drug addiction before rising again later in life to find redemption and triumph.
Imperial Art Studios is a 110,000 square-foot venue comprised of multiple structures including raw warehouses, art galleries, creative offices, and film/photo space. It has become one of the fastest growing locations in Los Angeles for art installations, film and television production, and urban artwork.
