“Jimmy Nutts”- Brittany Lowe

Doing a multimedia piece on James Nutter, aka “Jimmy Nutts,” was a fantastic experience all together. Jimmy had a story, a very in depth, interesting story to tell and I feel honored and privileged to have heard it. He is a professional wrestler who has been through more tribulation that most could ever imagine.

“Jimmy” has been through depression, addiction, illnesses, family issues and hard times throughout his life, Jimmy relies on wrestling to keep him going. Wrestling is Jimmy’s passion and claims it to be his “anit-death.” He uses the crowd as his motivation and hopes to inspire kids to overcome their struggles like he has.

Listening to Jimmy talk about it all, the positives and negatives, the lows and the highs, it is truly inspirational and motivating. Jimmy talks about it all with such passion and emotion that even the smallest things, you can tell, make the biggest impact. He uses everything he has been through and his struggles only as motivation to further himself in life and wrestling.

To start off the project and understand “Jimmy Nutts” a little better, we attended his wrestling match that he had one weekend. When we first walked in they greeted us and were introduced to some of Jimmy’s closest wrestling friends. We soon set up the camera and waited for the show to start. Jimmy opened the show, wrestling one of his closest friends and trainer. The show was more than entertaining and was exciting to see him doing something you know he loves.

Days later we conducted interview after interview with Jimmy, trying to get into the real story. Each interview was in great depth and length, opening us up more to knowing who the real “Jimmy Nutts” is. Jimmy explained his struggles and motivations while cracking jokes and rapping in between.

Bringing the story all together was the biggest struggle of this multimedia piece. Jimmy had so many different angles, such depth and emotion, and finding a way to capture it all in a three minute piece was the real trick. We tried to concentrate a little bit on everything, put the most basic and most meaningful of each aspect, which was still powerfull.

Being able to do stories like this one and the ones I have been exposed to this whole semester have truly been influential and motivating. The people I have met and the obstacles I have over come make this class more rewarding than I could have expected. I am in broadcasting to open my eyes to new things and meet  different people, and through this class I have achieved that and so much more.
