Cheetah in August is a riveting story about a former high school track athlete who’s distorted views on love, negatively affects the people closest to him. The journey of the main character, August, from his high school years into adult life is extremely interesting and current to the times of today. Sexuality, love, religion, psychology, and self-hate are all themes that are touched on throughout this series and it definitely raises awareness to societal issues that are often swept under the rug.
It is no secret that I am in love with Cheetah In August. One of the few indie web series that allows me forget I am watching an independent project. The cast, the storyline, the visuals are all stellar. This is a project that makes you lose yourself in the story and find new meaning in your own life.
As I have presented the project previously, it’s time for me to introduce you to the people behind the greatness. From the creator to the cast, when you get up close and personal with these individuals you start to understand just why the show is so great.
