Episode 7 of the behind the scenes making of the AT&T shorts takes you to the set of ‘Postmarked’. Angela wrote a beautiful story and Malakai is a committed director and if you watch film and television at all you’ll probably recognize an actor or two who appear in this short.

Enjoy!

New episode of the behind the scenes of the AT&T shorts.

You know Lena, you know Ava, most of you don’t know Shooter yet…

She’s a sweetheart, she’s genuine, and of course very talented.

Episode 6…

Episode of the ‘making of’ webseries of the AT&T Hello Lab shorts focuses on Fragile.com. Alison and Brittany have created this dark horror story that speaks to the times we live in.

Enjoy!

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!

Episode 3 of the behind the scenes webseries for the AT&T Hello Lab doc is live now. More Lena in this one.

Enjoy!

Episode two of the making of the AT&T Hello Lab short films is up. My only self critique is do I really have a permanent five o clock shadow now?

Anyway, enjoy!

So you know what I’ve been involved with this summer.

Now, hear myself and the other mentees talk about the shorts and why we feel attached to them.

Enjoy!

100% True.

A couple of nights ago, I was reading Idris’ profile on Vanity Fair where he talks about his path in Hollywood.

The next day, I’m quoted and featured on their website.

When things move sometimes, they move SWIFTLY.

Thanks to Vanity Fair, THEM, and Mitu for the coverage of my AT&T Hello Lab class.
