The Filmz:


“Tie”

Written by Candace Johnson

Produced by Can I Film Productions

Executive Produced by Trent Williams


Synopsis:

Derrick (Trent Williams), a teen close to graduating high school, is on his way to a job interview, but there’s only one problem, he doesn’t know how to tie a tie! Torn between what his peers and the streets think of him, and what his older brother advises him to do, he must make a choice if he wants to get accepted into the internship.


“Shades Of Green: The Series”

Written by Glenance Green

Produced by Glenance Green and Trent Williams


Synopsis:

A six part miniseries of thoughts from the mind of one Black woman (Glenance Green) giving voices to many. Capturing the essence of social constructions of identities and struggles, these poetic visual expressions of lived experiences go well beyond the realm of art.
