For anyone who missed it, this is our interview with Awesome TV from last year’s Golden Door International Film Festival where the music video for Milan Lazistan’s MUSIC AT MIDNIGHT had screened. We’re currently in post-production with the video of his next single SANGRIA and hope to return there with it soon! The interview begins at 23:50.

After two amazing weeks featuring THE SAXOPHONIST at Emerson College, the Creative Arts Night with Moonlight Productions, our Staten Island community center events, yesterday’s Jamaica International Faith Film Fest, and today’s Brightside Film Fest with its wonderful audience reception, it is truly a blessing to be honored with a BEST DIRECTOR award for this truly blessed film. This goes to my brother for life Beavin Lawrence and my incredibly talented cast and crew who made this dream come true. I love you mom and dad and those important in my life today and beyond.
