Film Work

Not many people know that I went to college for filmmaking. With my love for writing I wanted to expand on it through the medium of film. Although I did much of my work on video than film, here you’ll find some of my work.

I receivd my Bachelors of Arts degreein MMA: Radio, Television and Film at Clark Atlanta University. During my matriculation there I started my own film organization called BEB Productions where I began writing, directing and producing my own work on video. Using my own video camera and setting up a linear editing station in my dorm room using two shuttle speed VCR’s (with the aid of my roommate) I and started making my own works and aiding other students who were looking to experiment with video. I completed three films True Friends (1992), Without Warning (1993) and The Nemesis (1994).

After graduation, my return to New York didn’t have filmmaking in the cards for me so I spent the years in between writing stories, radio dramas and plays.The plays helped me keep my directorial skills fresh.

Did you know? – My original short horror film, Snap, was chosen as an official selection at

the 2015 Coney Island Film Festival? Snap will be available soon here on this site so stay tuned!

Baggage (2014) is a new short film from me and Jelani Sinclair. Rodney tries to make sense of Marie bringing multiple bags for a two day trip.

Program: Interrupted (2014) is a short film written and directed by me, edited and filmed by Jelani Sinclair. It tells the story of Rodney, a man who just wants to watch his show but his wife, Marie, has a lot to say about the situation.

In 2001 A Fly on the Wall marked the first film to be completed and sent to competition. Unfortunately, due to its length, festivals found a hard time placing it. So until recently, the film has sat on my shelf. You can now view it at the link below.

A FLY ON THE WALL – As a group of friends await the arrival of their good friend to celebrate his anniversary, they open up to one another about love, life, relationships and struggle to make sense of it all.
