In mid-November, I got an invitation from my dear Associate Producer, Imani Warren to screen the Mr. Gele trailer at the screening of Goddess, a short film by Tiara Luten. A film she served as a Production Coordinator. Of course, my answer was yes and the rest is history. The Mr. Gele Trailer screened at SCAD's Digital Media Center located in Atlanta, GA.
A little background - sometime last year, Imani invited me to SCAD to meet with Tiara and her team during one of her production meetings. Shortly after the meeting, we both shared our individual journeys on how we came to the decision to making our own movies. Let's just say, we shared a "sister moment". Now several months after that meeting, we have projects to share with the world. Amazing, how new connections lead to amazing opportunities. Never underestimate the power of networking!!
Back to the present, it was quite exciting sitting with an audience and seeing the Mr. Gele trailer on the big screen, WOW! I cannot even imagine the feeling that will take over me when the entire film is screened!! Yikes!
What an amazing feeling!
Congratulations to Tiara and the rest of her "Goddess" team for a successful screening!
