With all this black pain all over social media, and getting checked on my role in this blackout, by my beautiful wife, I decided to highlight some of my biggest inspirations over the next few posts.
This will include black, musicians, music artists, actors, DP’s, Writers and Directors that I hope to one day stand among.
I’m beginning with Oscar winning or nominated directors that inspire me. *For clarification the Oscar nomination will be related to any department of a film they directed. #blackfilmmakers #blacklivesmatter #blm

2. Jordan Peele (GET OUT, Oscar winner for best Original Screenplay)
