Filmmaker’s Note

Inspired By True Events Rolling In The Deep is near and dear to my heart more then any other film I’ve ever made. It’s about a time that wasn’t very kind towards American Soldiers but Black People in general. But I wanted to showcase with this amazing story that if given a chance were truly all the same regardless of race, we may have different styles but were all the same at the end of the day and need one another to make it in this world. I hope you enjoy my film and that I have a chance to hear from you soon. Take Care.
