Update: "Green Light" -- Documentary In Development

For those of you keeping in touch with the blog, my team and I are still in the development phase, but there's much interest in making the movie. When things get finalized I'll update the blog. For now, the storyboard artist is still hard at work and when he's done we'll upload the artwork.

There's more good news, too. Rather fortuitously, I've connected with community activist Najee Ali and Charlene Lovett, Cheryl Green's mother. They are both committed to bringing an end to the senseless, mean-spirited violence that took Cheryl's precious life.

Together, we are collaborating to produce a feature length documentary about race and gang tensions in L.A. Given that Just 2 Get By is an urban coming-of-age drama about the very same issues, it makes sense to make the documentary. Needless to say, the topic is important to me, but I am also honored to be working with them.

Najee is astute and Charlene is, for lack of a better word, amazing. Imagine being in her shoes, surviving the loss of a beautiful daughter simply because of the color of her skin. I am in awe of her strength, her compassion, and her determination. Charlene is a warrior committed to fighting for justice.

Stay tuned for more details about the documentary entitled "Green Light: The Plague of Ethnic and Gang Terrorism." We're seeking financing to produce the documentary as well as the feature film "Just 2 Get By." If you'd like to assist us in the quest to tell both stories please contact me:
