Within the last two months I’ve visited about five theaters across the country. Scoping out places to screen the documentary that I’m working on and envisioning people in the seats.
When I stood on stage at the Colony Theater in Miami, Florida during the American Black Film Festival this year I saw myself on that stage. I looked to my right and saw a fellow staff member (main photo) in deep thought. I didn’t disturb her because I was in the same mode. In my mind I had arrived. I was at the door, all I had to do was knock.
I stepped back after taking the picture and thought about this poem that my mom gave me when I was in high school, “Who’s In Your Front Row?”
There will be people that won’t understand your dream.
There will be people that won’t support you.
There will be people that say it can’t happen.
You know what. That’s okay.
How much do you believe in the vision that God has given you?
Every night I’m dedicated to finishing the logline, and finalizing a traveling schedule for filming the rest of the documentary. Allowing myself realistic timelines to not overdo it. I know that this documentary project will be amazing, and I’m excited that you are able to take this journey along with me. If you aren’t updated with the project or totally lost about it. Here’s the website —> Final 48 Project
We are currently accepting donations to keep the ball rolling, and looking to launch a crowdfunding page as our way to keep you involved in the process too. To make a donation to the project please click here —-> Final 48 Project Donations!
What vision has God given you that you are afraid of the outcome? Embrace it! We can take this ride together.
