Production wraps on ‘Brothers on the Phone’

Corwin Moore
Comedian Corwin Moore

This weekend, we wrapped production on the short film Brothers on the Phone: What About Her? written and executive produced by comedy writer Corwin Moore (Saturday Night Live, Uptown Comedy Club) and directed by yours truly. Brothers on the Phone: What About Her? is the first in the Brothers on the Phone series, and it centers on two best friends, a likeable homeboy who is single and his best friend, a married guy with an “I don’t give a f*” approach to life. These two brothers on the phone talk about the single guy’s tough time finding Ms. Right, a new spin on the topic of finding The One, with flashbacks to his experiences with different women.

After meeting with Moore and finding out what he wanted to accomplish with the piece, I was excited to once again direct comedy. For those who’ve been following my work, you know that last year I directed the comedy thriller Trust No One.  As a director whose authored work is dramatic, I enjoy these opportunities to direct comedy. The two genres actually have some similarities when it comes to directing (more on that later). What’s best is the chance to make people laugh.


Brothers on the Phone: What About Her?  Executive Producer Corwin Moore. Producers Ty Powell and Nicole Sylvester. Directed by Olu Gittens. Starring Corwin Moore, Shanise Beck, Mia Anderson, Mieke Stapelton, Afiya Wilson and James Egbute.

Cultural Entrepreneur Roland Lair passes

Roland LairdI was saddened to find out about the passing of Roland Laird, CEO of MIST (My Image Studios) a multi-million dollar, state of the art film center in Harlem, and co-owner/founder entertainment firm Posro Media, which promoted positive images of African Americans though a number of multimedia initiatives. Roland was a fellow alum of Brown University whom I met through our Inman Page Council, Brown’s African American alumni network. A genuine person with a passion for film, Roland took an interest in my work and offered advice and encouragement. Roland was an entrepreneur, author, activist, supporter of the arts, family man, and friend to many.

He leaves behind his wife Taneisha Nash Laird, with whom he co-founded MIST and Posro, and two beautiful daughters. He will be greatly missed.

Beck, along with fellow cast mate and co-producer Dominique Darrell and the director Olu Gittens are helping to keep his name, his vision and his spirit alive though this amazing show.

BABY OF THE FAMILY project website

Check out the website for upcoming feature film BABY OF THE FAMILY (, a family drama I am co-producing with Nicole Sylvester and Rahsan Lindsay; each of us brings a decade of industry experience to the table.

BABY OF THE FAMILY is the story of the Douglas family who come together for Thanksgiving Day, when a newborn is left on their doorsteps. This uninvited guest brings to light family secrets, sibling rivalry and infidelity, forcing them to face the unpleasant truths about their lives.

Soulful, funny, sad and triumphant, BABY OF THE FAMILY will have all the elements of a classic film that will be cherished for years to come.  This is the kind of film that will draw audiences who support entertaining, compelling black films.

BABY OF THE FAMILY’s website features team bios, promo videos and our Director’s Look Book, a visual presentation of the film’s characters and imagery.  Take a look — I am sure you will become as excited about this project as I am!



BABY OF THE FAMILY Director’s Look Book

Check out the Director’s Look book for BABY OF THE FAMILY, my feature film in development. I was inspired to create a Director’s Look Book after attending a NYWIFT (New York Women in Film and Television) sponsored case study on the groundbreaking film Pariah led by Pariah’s writer/director Dee Rees.  Look Books, whether in fashion or film, are a collection of images and  visual ideas that convey what the designer or director wants to achieve for that project.

BABY OF THE FAMILY Director's Look Book

I had actually compiled the images over a year ago, to give my Cinematographer a sense of what the film would be like visually. Developing the images into a Look Book took this process to the next level, as I added visual character sketches and location ideas to the visual motifs I had compiled. Valuable feedback from BABY OF THE FAMILY producers Nicole Sylvester and Rahsan Lindsay helped me to hone what I was trying to get across.  Filmmaking is  a team effort that takes planning…in addition to picking up a camera and going for it!
