The first film that kicked off the Vendetta series, DISHONORABLE VENDETTA, is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video for customers in the U.S. and the U.K.! Previously a winner for “Best Firefight” at the 2015 Urban Action Showcase sponsored by Cinemax, the original film follows two young DEA agents assigned to go undercover as drug dealers to take down a group of a dangerous Russian cartel. But their lives are put at risk when one of their own is leaking information to the suspects.
I returned to It’s Just Us Radio Show last night for my 2nd appearance on the show hosted by Charlene Bowden. We discussed the past successes of THE SAXOPHONIST and VENDETTA GAMES, life struggles as a creative during the pandemic, and getting deeply emotional about my approach to my next short film DISMISSAL TIME which starts shooting next month and is still fundraising. This full episode also features the legendary Keisha Knight Pulliam, best known as “Rudy” from The Cosby Show, and I’m proud to be sharing the same episode as her. You can listen to the show right now at the link below:
Sad news to share today as Del Weston who created and managed the Action on Film Festival had passed away after a long battle with COVID-19. Del was one of the biggest supporters of Vendetta Games when he accepted the film to AOF in Las Vegas back in 2018. While my memories of Del were mostly short but positive moments, the one that stands out most was when he watched my back after another distributor offered to pick up our film. Not only did he warn me against them but he went as far as reaching out to a better contact he trusted. That showed how big his heart was with struggling filmmakers. Vegas will never be the same without him. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
