Sweeter is a lighthearted coming of age comedy about a precocious six year old who switches place with her mother for a day and wakes up to what it means to be a woman of color in the US today. It's my thesis statement on identity, comedy, and growing up; it's presented through the perspective of the daughter of a young mother living in Baltimore. While there isn't yet a trailer out (I'm in the home stretch of editing as I type this), I thought you might enjoy these uncolored stills.
I wrote/directed/edited/acted in/produced this movie, it's a labor of love & the biggest original piece I've ever taken on. If you'd like to learn more or donate to our production please check out my still active GoFundMe. Even though we hit our goal I am still collecting donations to pay those involved in post-production, including our composer amongst others.
To stay up to date with this flick please feel free to LIKE my Facebook Page, I update it with Sweeter content weekly! And be sure to look out for us on the 2016-2017 festival circuit, we will hopefully be coming to a film fest near you.
