Lamonte D. Faison, CEO of Get Your Mind Right Productions LLCAgainst all odds and his mother's wishes, he quit numerous jobs to pursue his passion for writing and rhyming. In the early 90's, Faison, known as M.C. Mello at the time, would get the opportunity of a lifetime-- to write a rap for the R&B great, Ray Parker, Jr. After writing the verse, Parker had him record it. Upon finishing, Parker instantly knew he wanted to use this original song, "Love, Sex and Money".
Years later, little has changed with Faison. He is still writing, albeit at his own kitchen table. With two books under his belt ("The Teenager's Guide to Making Excellent Decisions" and his sophomore release, “Unveiling the Mask of the Pretender”), and armed with a can-do attitude, this take-charge personality with an no-excuse mentality has now embarked on another venture. Still a big fan of writing and storytelling, this entrepreneur/author/songwriter now adds filmmaker and director to his credits.
He has recently written a movie entitled, "From the Inside Looking Out", an urban drama about one man's quest for redemption. In it, moral conviction is challenged by the street code by which he once lived. Undaunted by the challenge of being new to the film industry, Faison says that his gift of storytelling is here to stay. His mission is to make movies that have purpose. Faison vows not to be a slave to the industry, but a rebel who writes out of passion, as opposed to writing to sell his soul for a paycheck. Why? He has adopted into his own philosophy, the message of his favorite book, "Excuses Be Gone" by Dr. Wayne Dyer. How fitting for this freshman filmmaker! www.fromtheinsidelookingoutthemovie.com
