After completing my residency program with the Tribeca Film Institute’s Tribeca Teaches Youth Program, a few students, Jane Rosenthal (co-founder Tribeca Film Festival) and I were invited onto The Today Show to discuss the experience of working on documentary films. The Today Show is a nationally syndicated morning show on NBC. The five minute segment was shot live at Rockefeller Center in May 2008.

I am very proud to report that the award winning feature documentary, “In A Dream” directed by Jeremiah Zagar has been shortlisted for an Academy Award for 2009. I had the honour of working on this film for 7 months, 6 days a week, over 10 hours a day and can honestly say that I never got bored or stressed, and am truly humbled to have been a part of it. Nominations are announced late January 2009 – let’s keep our fingers crossed!

I shot it on Super8mm film in East New York and Brooklyn in an experimental narrative format. The projects are a part of Black Public Media’s Masculinity Project, funded by the Ford Foundation.
