I’m a cosmic believer and a total a cyber-geek. I’m devoted to creating fresh, intriguing, top-notch sci-fi stories --- in other words, the kind of science fiction I love. I'm excited about what the future holds for humanity and our evolution, our technology and our contact with intelligent life outside of Earth. My imagination is usually running wild around these subjects. I am blessed to have a network of really talented and innovative production pros, both here in Ohio and on the East Coast. Patreon funding will provide budget for me to hire them and .make the stories I create a reality I can share with others.
I have just finished two short sci-fi films. Roxë15 and MISSION, are ready to go forth into the festival world. Patreon support would help get the costly process of submitting both short films to festivals and in front of audiences….which, after all, is the whole point.
My next project is an animated fantasy series called ALLEVON. (My first foray into fantasty AND animation --- yaaay!) Season One of the series is written and with Patreon funding, my production company would be able to hire an illustrator, an animator, voice actors, a sound designer and start producing episodes at regular intervals. Check out the Allevon Creative Guide and listen to the Prologue.
I am also developing a music documentary mini-series called Flipsides of the Black Musical Experience, which explores Black musical artists through history who have flourished in musical genres not expected of them. It's not science fiction, but in a certain way, it's the definition of 'alternative music.' ! Patreon support would pay for production of the three episodes, which each look at two very different artists. This pitch video gives you a little taste.
Last but not least, I am developing my first feature film, a sci-fi thriller called Godspeed.
The team is currently seeking production financing, but in the meantime, we want to commission original artwork (poster, etc.) by the amazing Bay Area artist Joshua Mays. I've already met with him at his studio in Oakland and he's cool af. He's one of the hottest AfroFuturist artists in the game. We also want to have an interactive game created that will put the audience in touch with the characters. I'm studying game design right now and looking to partner with a gaming start-up to make this happen. Patreon funding would also support these important types of media for Godspeed --- both will help us build audience, which will help us make our case to investors.
Whatever you can give to support my work is HUGE. I am committed to creating top-notch science fiction that features women and people of color at the forefront. THANK YOU for helping me to open a new door.
