FiveFeetNine Productions, Inc.
FIVEFEETNINE PRODUCTIONS, INC. is an organization created with the vision to sustain itself and produce quality work. I am proud to announce that we are now fully focused on making that a forceful, ongoing reality. We are expanding the scope of our endeavors to include the creation of well-crafted films. The proceeds from the films will be funneled into various community projects. The first project is LEVEL GROUND, a co-ed Vocational Training Center. The Center is focused on working with At-Risk youngsters, to encourage and empower them with the tools and techniques to pursue professions that will allow them to be solvent, independent contributors to their communities. The center is being established in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and will also serve as the national headquarters. All Staff training will be conducted there. It is my goal to replicate the program in other cities.
There is an Anthology in the works entitled WHEN BLACK LIVES MATTERED. It is a compilation of stories told by our elders from around the country, who remember the days of Community Policing. The time period encompasses the 50s, primarily. Back then, we were not as consumed with self-hatred and overwhelming mistrust for the officers who took care of the communities. The anthology will be available in hard copy as well as an online in Kindle format. It is time that we re-employ the concept of “EACH ONE, TEACH ONE”, to help eliminate the violence and hatred that is so rampant today in our communities.
As a creative writer, my intention is always to create work that uplifts and sustains the human spirit. My great hope is that the words I write will become a guide to wisdom that will fortify your heart, and bloom in your soul. The film projects are created in similar service.
I am actively connecting and collaborating with creative types who can provide varying skill sets (i.e., PR, advertising, event planning, etc.), as needed. It allows me to contribute to the larger community, by offering gainful employment.
Please check out my Facebook Page and this website for more details. I am determined to do all I can to transform dreams into reality!
In light and love
