It's been 6 days since I premiered my film "The Testimony of a Devotee." The one thing that sticks out from the premiere was seeing my film on a projector screen!!! I stood towards the back with the lead actress Jewel Redhead and watched the beauty of the film frame by frame. Seeing the mixture of the audience, friends, family and supporters who came to the event after hearing me on WBAI promoting the film filled me with joy!!!
I knew after that night there was no turning back! Sapphire Productions and the quality productions I set out to create about women and young girls will make it's mark. I worked very hard on the film and I have no regrets. I was very fortunate to have a wonderful production team that brought "The Testimony of a Devotee" where it is today! I wish them all the best of luck in their future endeavors & look forward to working with them again!
