Social Status released a brand new Nike Dunk collaboration in August of 2021. A collaboration inspired by youth programming done in the various inner-city communities that Social Status and BeSocial operate out of, namely the free lunch program. The Turner Brothers were tapped to create a powerful and entertaining short film that tells the story behind the inspiration of the shoes. A story based on the life of CEO James Whitner.
In an alternate universe, a viral pandemic leads to the wealthy altering their DNA to become an immune humanoid species of bird known as the Vocals. These Vocals live among a human working-class known as the Mutes who wear masks to survive-- masks that also restrict their freedom of speech to the confines of their private property. Once a month, a secret meeting of the most powerful of the Vocals is held at Club Alli, the largest nightclub in the sector. This month, however, an unknown foster family of Mutes has a different agenda in mind.
