Topeka filmmaker Adrian Herrera is looking for supporters to help him complete “We Not Me”, a documentary about the Highland Park basketball team.
Herrera, a two-time state champion and two-time all-city pick during while playing at Highland Park (2005-08), is aiming to complete the film by the end of December.
“When I played at Highland Park I always thought to myself that somebody should really make a movie about this program, but I never knew that I was going to be the one to produce this film,” Herrera said. “I’m just honored to be able to tell this story and really show just a little glimpse of what coach Ken Darting means to the community of Highland Park and the impact that he’s had on every player that’s ever been through that program.”
The film followed the 2013-14 Scots led by Jahmal McMurray, Shaffee Carr, and Eddie Hunt in Darting’s final season as the head coach.
Herrera played basketball at Pittsburg State University and graduated with a communications degree in broadcasting. “We Not Me” is a film he is producing for his final project towards his Master’s degree. Herrera’s production company is titled A1 Productions.
Herrera is looking for supporters to donate funds towards final production of the film and has setup a donation page through Kickstarter. He plans to keep supporters updated on the progress of the film and is offering rewards for their support.
