Juniper Post’s sound supervisor David Kitchens, Mario Van Peebles, head re-recording mixer David Barber & Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
“It’s a project that I wrote and produced myself,” Jackson said of the film. “It’s about a Heisman hopeful who could possibly be going to the league and everyone is assuming he’s gonna make it, and then he’s hit with an illness.
“I had a friend of mine who experienced cancer, and it’s what motivated me to write this screenplay. You don’t have to make everything personal, but this project was.
“That’s why I committed to playing a role where I lost 54 pounds. I had to discipline myself enough until I achieved it but … I got it.”
Normally weighing in at 214 pounds, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson spent nine weeks of a liquid diet and three hours on a treadmill each day, shedding 54 pounds for this role.
Now that THINGS FALL APART is a wrap, Juniper Post is gearing up for Mixing and Sound Design services for the upcoming Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson movie SET UP, starring Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillipe.
