The first installment of Invisible Thread, an ongoing ELM passion project series, Throw tells the story of an outsider from East Baltimore, an area challenged by gang violence and poverty.

He now helps others find a creative and social outlet by sharing the very toy that inspired him. Alex was an associate producer and worked second camera on this project.
