It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. But I’ve been up to a lot and I’d love to share. Hubby is fine, Scarlett turned 3 this year and baby number two is on the way.
Also, season 2 of The Cleveland show airs this Sunday, 9/26 at 8:30 on Fox with the Season 1 DVD going on sale. And if that wasn’t cool enough, we’re recording season 3 right now. Also, I have a few films coming out. So, life is good. But I have something else to talk about.
If you follow me on Twitter you know I tweet a lot. Tweetaholic some might say…but these people are clearly exaggerating. LOL. One of the things I tweet about, and I’m very passionate about, is more people of color getting behind the camera to create our own opportunities.
Luckily, I was able to do that earlier this year. I wrote and produced my first short and we ustreamed it all. From the casting to the shooting and we gave an inside look into film making.
I thank God for the experience. I worked with an amazing director named Matthew Cherry. He took our negative-zero budget, (literally) and made a great short film. When we came up with the story I knew we were on to something that has never been told from an African American perspective.
I have a brother in the service, and support our men and women in uniform fighting for our freedoms. But, you get so focused on the war that you forget that these people are leaving behind loved ones.
Loved ones who may or may not see them again. How do they cope? And God forbid if they lose someone, how do they move on? Or can they? That’s the premise of the film. It’s called This Time. Shout out to Terri J. Vaughn, Michael Moss, Sinorice Moss and Barry Floyd.
I’d love your thoughts. We’re in the process of turning this into a full-length feature. Again, thank you guys so much for the love and support. And when the full-length gets done, and I move on to a writing career (God Willing), I’ll be able to thank Global Grind for letting me screen my first film.
Thanks guys. God Bless
