SUPPORT THE #POCDEAFTALENT MOVEMENT

Thank you for dropping by to support a social issue and fundraising cause so we can produce our movie, "The Double Life of Zhane Rain." (The title has now changed to "The Shattered Mind.") Our goal is to spread and increase awareness that we need more Deaf Talents of Color in the mainstream movie industry and in television. That's why as a writer, I am producing a movie by us and about us because nobody is going to do it for us. We want to attract media attention and let the world know what we are trying to do. We're very tired of being overlooked and not having our voices heard.  

We're planning a movement for change in film and TV by using hashtags support #POCDEAFTALENT, #DEAFBLACKFILM or #DEAFTALENTOFCOLOR to spread awareness and representation about our film, The Double Life of Zhane Rain, written by first Black Deaf Filmmaker, Ann Marie "Jade" Bryan. Her production company, Jade Films and Entertainment, LLC will be producing it.

THE MISSION IS SIMPLE

• To spread and increase awareness about the lack of African-American Deaf and Deaf Actors of Color cast in roles in the mainstream movie industry and in television. 

• To increase recognition for Deaf Talents of Color who are performers, sign language; culture coaches, stuntmen, filmmakers, directors, producers, writers, cinematographers, etc. in the mainstream movie industry and in television.

Many cars like this one stopped by to check out the scene. Some donated money, some were given postcards about my movie.
