Proud to announce that Tinderbox has picked up 4 nominations at the Seattle Film Festival including Best Short Film, Best Director (Rickey Larke), Best Produced or Unproduced Screenplay and Best Actor (Dennis Pearson).
It is an absolute honor to have our project be recognized by this awesome organization and among all the talented films that were submitted and showcased. 🙏🏿
A play that I had the pleasure of performing in a couple weeks back, Survival Strategy, was voted and given the People’s Choice Award at the Short + Sweet Hollywood festival (@ShortnSweetHTF)! Survival Strategy was voted the fan favorite and awarded a spot in the festivals Semi-Finals. Beyond thrilled for my awesome co-star Abbie Krentz, incredible director Brian Patrick Williams and of course the woman who made it all possible, our terrific playwright Donna Hoke as we continue this journey together.
Recently, I’ve had the opportunity of joining and studying at the IDENTITY School of Acting; the UK’s leading Drama School’s Los Angeles based Institution.
IDENTITY has been one of the UK’s top drama schools for quite some time and has produced talent by the likes of John Boyega (Star Wars, Pacific Rim: Uprising), Letitia Wright (Black Panther, Black Mirror), Damson Idris (Snowfall) and Melanie Liburd (This IS US) to name a few. The unique school was even featured in Deadline Hollywood recently.
