Hi my name is Malcolm Mays and I'm a young filmmaker who's being presented the oppurtuniy to create his first full length feature film. The subject matter of my film is about my personal dealings with the violent racial tensions between Black and Latino youth in the Los Angeles school systems and its surrounding communities. This tension has now became a serious problem in the life of the youth of not only LA but all over America's poverty stricken neighborhoods. It's became an epidemic of violence and deaths that can no longer be ignored; so instead of me participating in the violence I've decided to use my art as an expression and possible solution to this problem. It is a professional film made possible by a film camera grant provided by panavision now I just need some funds to purchase the equipment needed to make watchable film. I'm no rookie either, I've been featured in many film festivals and I also have been working at sony pictures as a intern for the past two years.
Thank You for taking me into consideration,
Malcolm M. Mays
