One thing I’ve been asked about more than a few times referencing ‘1/30’ is how has it been having someone who is not Black or Muslim directing this story. I’ve told anyone who would listen that Vishnu (the director) from pre-production on has been hyper sensitive (in all the right ways) about not being disrespectful to my point of view.

Lena backs this up (which should surprise no one) in the intro to today’s behind the scenes webisode for the AT&T Hello Lab.

Enjoy!

The momentum continues…

It’s public information now that my last feature script, ‘Midnight In Kansas’, is one of the three finalists in the Screenplay Competition of the 2019 Urbanworld Film Festival.

Urbanworld has been on my radar for years as a lover of black films; being welcomed into the Urbanworld Family this year means a lot to me. I’m looking forward to coming back to New York City and being part of the experience.

Festival passes are on sale now on urbanworld.org; should be a fun weekend.

Onward!
