First Look of “Parallel Chords”

Hey everyone! “Parallel Chords” will be showing at the STL Filmmakers Showcase at Washington University in St. Louis on Friday, 7/20/2018. If you are in St. Louis or surrounding areas please go check this awesome film out!

Here is a quick look of the film “Parallel Chords”. This music driven drama explores issues of consent and control in a young female artist’s life, as she struggles to break free and find her own voice.

 

Sorry for the brief update but I’m currently in Chicago prepping my next project but I really wanted to share this and hopefully those who get to see the film in St. Louis enjoy the film.

Until next time! Be Blessed!

That’s a wrap on “Terror Road”

I just wrapped a fun project with a good group of filmmakers in Orlando, FL. I didn’t think this project was gonna happen because of the crazy weather that has been hitting the east coast but the weather Gods really looked out for us and spared us the hard parts of the storm.

Stay tuned for more info from this project.

“Parallel Chords” Funding Campaign

Hey Family and Friends!! The feature film “Parallel Chords” is looking for at least 500 followers for the #hometownheroes National Campaign that focuses on utilizing local resources, and supporting diversity in front of and behind the scenes!

Please go to the link below. Please create an account and follow us. The funding is optional though GREATLY appreciated!

Why do free follows matter?
In this contest if we hit a certain number of follows, Seed & Spark will consider releasing their own funds to support some films.
Why is now important? We have many days left!
The sooner we do well, the sooner we are bumped to the top of the page, with more traffic. And like a house on the market – there is perceived value added to projects that start strong (or at this point – climb steadily).

WE NEED YOUR HELP!! SO PLEASE HELP!!! LOVE YOU!

That’s a wrap on “I am That Man”

What’s up world!

Allow me to catch you up on what’s been going on in my world. Over the past 3 months, I’ve been in Hollywood making movies! This first project, I got a call from the homie Frederick asking me to come 2nd AD for him. He was telling me he had a project he was trying to 1st and wanted to see if I could 2nd for him. I was like of course! Its been a couple of years since I last worked in LA, so I jump at the chance to do this even though I really don’t like 2nd AD’ing. I really enjoy being on set a million time more then 2nd’ing.

 

POSTER-I-Am-That-Man-1

Struggling to come to terms with the break-up of his marriage and his reintegration into civilian life, former Navy SEAL John Beckett contemplates returning to what he knows best, war. When a close friend is brutally murdered in a racially motivated attack, Beckett calls upon his specialized military skills to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice. Has he found a new sense of purpose, or will this be his last mission?

After flying out and meeting the team attached to this project, I really was happy to be involved in this project. Matthew Marsden (Director) and all the Producers were a joy to work with. I’m not saying my first film in LA was horrible but we had a producer steal money and delay the project plus a ton of other problems. So coming to this I was a bit apprehensive but once I met the team, I know this would be the complete opposite. And I was thankful for that.

I wasn’t on set that much for this project. I was mainly in base camp but our wonderful producers took a boat load of pictures. So check out some of the BTS from this project.

That’s a wrap on “My Little Baby”

Excuse the tardiness but I’ve been busy prepping for my next projects that I forgot to blog about the last project I finished at the end of February. It was a fun and very interesting project and I hope the world gets to see it one day.

“My Little Baby” is about Jimmy, a child with extraordinary powers who has just lost his father. On Christmas Day, under the tree, among other gifts, is a pair of walkie-talkie toy. A night like so many walkie talkie starts to emit strange noises, while connecting with a parallel dimension to be met by the deceased father. From then on, Jimmy starts a radio relationship with his dead father. But this incredible touch means that even the mysterious creatures have free access to our world, thus disturbing the tranquility of Jimmy and mother Becky.
