Proud to announce that Black Theory finishes #19 among the Viewster Online Film Festival. My team and I are very happy with the production that became of that fall day in Denver. We filmed a story about racism in the media. Our goal was to respectfully exploit the issues we see on common mediums that people watch day in and day out.
Viewster has now offered a licensing deal to keep Black Theory on their platform and film library. Pending negotiation, you may be able to watch this film on Viewster. Stay tuned!
With the recent rise in police shootings and protest incidents, many of the media have been taking their stand from an editorial perspective. I took my stand from a little different perspective, a short film.
I wanted to release a film piece that takes an interesting spin on the recent Ferguson uproar and other racism in the media. Lets see if I got my point across. The film is about an African American man who gets a little lost in his own head as he watches some thought provoking news segments. In the end he has trouble deciphering what he’s actually hearing or what he’s thinking.
