Short Film Producer, Crew, and Actors

Date posted: Jan 8th, 2020

View More >

Hello potential collaborator, 

I am in search of producer for a low budget short film that will film in the Summer of 2020. Crew and actors are also invited to apply~ 

I recently received a grant to make a short film in MN based on a story about a Latinx immigrant son and mother. It is a glimpse into an emotional moment they share when the son tries to teach his mother how to swim after being separated from each other for almost a decade. On the surface, it is about a mother overcoming her fears of the water and beneath that, it's a story about how we love and heal each other after trauma. 

In terms of qualifications for the producer, it would be preferable that they have experience, driven and passionate mentality, easy to communicate and flexible, and someone who cares deeply about immigrant and Latinx experiences.

For crew, anyone is welcomed to apply. PAs and interns may also be needed on set. 

This is low pay~ I hope to raise more funds and pay more. Even though there is a budget involved, most of this will be treated as a passion project. I do not expect to be able to pay anyone their full rate whatsoever. 

ACTORS: 

Mother (Latinx, female, 35-55 yo) 

Son (Latinx, male, 15-25 yo) 

I have descriptions available for both roles but if you fit those basic qualifications, I would love to hear from you. No experience required from the actors.

My American Dream

Date posted: Aug 6th, 2019

View More >

My name is Tony Nayenga and I wrote the book My American Dream using my pen name Nekemiah Muzazibwa.  My book in online and I have had several book signings with very good feedback.  This story chronicles my life from a Civil War inUganda 1977 to a life in the U.S. with my family.  I explain the trials and tribulations  I/we encountered with many success until I was diagnosed with mul  sclerosis which I dealt with in denial.(as it is taboo in my culture).  Also, there is a love story detailed with a hirl I didn’t know from Ghana  which led to the birth of my 2 children. But my dream  with my children has become redefined as MS is a taboo among my people as I was getting very sick. I am in the process of converting this book to a short film and next a feature film, hopefully. If any producers can contact me I’d appreciate it!  Thank you.
