Laured Stewart’s ‘Whatever it takes’ to be released May 20
By Sean Devers
Guyanese Pugilist Laured ‘the Lion’ Stewart is set to fight on the Gary St Clair Superhero fight night PromotionsPro/Am Boxing Card which is tentatively scheduled for the Providence Stadium in September.
The 27-year-old Super Welterweight has a professional career of four fights between 2013 and 2020 when he lost to Jalen Renaud in the USA just before Covid-19 became a global pandemic.
Stewart, who resides in San Diego, also represented Guyana in the shotput and discus and Hockey and was Captain of the Queenstown Secondary School’s cricket team.
The Multi-Talented Athlete has ventured into the film Industry as a screen writer and actor with his first Movie…’Whatever it takes’,set to be released on You Tube under the Page ‘GT Reality’ onMay 28, 2021.
Stewart, who grew up in Albertown in Georgetown and attended St Gabriel’s Primary and Queenstown secondary schools, left Guyana in 2013 and explained what inspired him to delve into this non-sport vocation.
“One day I was sitting and thinking why Guyana has so few Movies. We watch African Movies, Indian Movies, Jamaican Movies, Trinidadian Movies…. Why can’t we watch our own stuff…Why can’t other people watch our stuff?
It was right there that I got the premonition that I should start writing and that’s where it all started, right there,” revealed Stewart.
He explained the concept of the Movie which described as low budget film.
“This Movie is intended to showcase some of the problems that are plaguing us as a society.
So the first two things that we looked to highlight was domestic violence in the home and people who run along with the idea we have to do whatever it takes to make my marriage work.
Gang Violence in the Country and drugs and corruption which has no winner…regardless of how bad you think you are it has no winner,” informed the American Guyanese.
The Boxer said that he wanted the actors to be Guyanese so some of them are living in Guyana and the others are Guyanese living in America, all who have social media platforms.
According to Stewart since this is a low Budget Movie they used their own Cameras while most of the funding came from within the group.
But why would a professional boxer, who have not yet retired want to get into an Entertainment Industry which has nothing to do with sport, was the big question.
“I don’t like to cap myself off…As I said I represented Guyana in Boxing as both Professional and Amateur, but I also represented Guyana in Shot Put and Discus and Hockey… both Junior and Senior.
When Guyana won bronze at the Pan American Cup I was the reserve Goal Keeper and lots of people don’t know that.
When Guyana beat Argentina for the first time in history in Uruguay I was there… So I don’t like label myself or cap myself off…so I like to allow God to use me in whatever field he sees fit so I don’t have any borders,” posited Stewart.
He feels his new venture could be a lucrative one, but support is needed.
“Once we have the vision, a good storyline and executive it could become a lucrative business and that is one of my goals,” stated Stewart.
The movie will be released on You tube under the page ‘GT Reality’ on May 20 and people are being encouraged to subscribe to the page so they can watch it since because it is a low budget movie the producers are hoping they can make ‘something’ from it.
“We are asking everyone to subsribe to the page so that we can we be paid by ‘You tube’ from views of the subscribers. By watching the Movie, it will help us who put in the hard work and improvisation and a lot of mental work into this project,” Stewart concluded.
