Award-Winning Independent Film Director Alrick Brown Puts Spotlight on New Jersey in new Kickstarter Campaign


T.MORRISON AGENCY has partnered with Award-Winning Filmmakers Alrick Brown and Deatra Harris for the 30-day Kickstarter campaign to fund their latest project, My Manz by award-winning writer, JM Benjamin

The opening minutes of “My Manz” takes place ten years before the rest of the film. We will use the money raised to shoot that portion of the movie and then use those scenes to raise the rest of the budget —1 million dollars.

To literally kickstart this feature film “My Manz” based on a novel by JM Benjamin $60,000 will need to be raised.  Brown shares, "We are asking everyday people to give $20.00 and thank 20 people who helped them with their particular hustle. Giving is important and thanking helps us share our journey and unifies a community around the film."

Scheduled to shoot in Plainfield, New Jersey, Alrick Brown, is recognized as one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces to Watch and an Emerging FilmMaker in Vanity Fair, Alrick Brown is an award winning writer, director, and producer.

His collective works have screened in over 65 festivals worldwide, earning numerous awards and honors. His first feature, Kinyarwanda premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and went on to win several awards including the World Cinema Audience Award for best dramatic film at both Sundance and AFI Fest. It was also nominated for three NAACP Image Awards and was listed as one of the top 10 best films of 2011 by Roger Ebert. Please click the video below and support the #ChooseYourHustle movement!
