Hey what’s going on many people asked well what Black Fist, Chocolate City about? Here’s a quick synopsis of the film. Still time to donate check link below.
Greg is back. After bravely serving four tours of duty in Afghanstian and Iraq, Greg — a decorated Marine — has returned home to his native Washington D.C. to begin the next chapter of his life. As Greg walks along the streets of our nation’s capital, he can’t believe how much everything has changed. His old neighborhood has been gentrified and he doesn’t like it. Rich elitists have invaded Chocolate City. When Greg reunites with his old friends, they discuss the issues affecting the city and what they can do about it. Each raises a Black Fist in solidarity. They vow to take action. But before they can do something about it, Greg is almost sideline by a beautiful yoga instructor. Sparks fly and tempers flare. Will Greg be able to complete his next mission or will his drive be compromised by intense attraction? https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/black-fist-chocolate-city–2/x/10330741#/story

Good Afternoon Everyone!
Wanted to update the blog to let you know Crowdfunding for our film “Black Fist, Chocolate City” starts Friday April 17th. We will be launching campaign on Indiegogo.com to help us raise funds to help us get thru production. We are really excited about the film. With this film we hope to highlight some of the current issues in District of Columbia . Issues such as Violence,Gentrification, Racism, etc. Although our film is touching on important social issues its also a very funny and entertaining film. We also wanted this to be a community film where real people in these communities are involved in the film whether its actors, background talent or assisting on set. We are so grateful for the support and encouragement we have received from the people of DMV. (DC, Maryland, Virigina)
We need your help to make this happen whether you can donate a $1 or simply spread word to your friends. Share Tweet, Facebook, Instagram whatever! Tell a friend to tell a friend! For those who donate we have perks from T-shirts, movie tickets, or posters. Again we launch campaign Friday and will follow up blog then. In meantime check us out profiles on social media for actor profiles, pictures and more info.

It has been quite awhile since I wrote any updates for short film Black Fist, Chocolate City. Spent last couple months writing and traveling. Now we’re ready to start Crowdfunding/ Preproduction stages.
In the process of setting up Crowdfunding campaign to help finance the film. We put together a short video of quick synopsis of the film. We feel it’s important film that’s funny but also deals with real issues in community. We have all sort of perks to donators from tickets to private screening to T-shirts etc.
I know everyone’s been asking and excited bout the film. We have enormous support from people especially in Washington, D.C where the film takes place. We wanted to take our time to make the very best Short film. We put together great cast and crew that we feel will make this indie project a hit. We go into some the roughest areas of DC to begin production this spring.
Be on look out for Crowdfunding post and check out our Facebook page.Thank You all for your support.
