 “I strive to be more than a director, but rather a storyteller for God.”- Fred Forte
 Born and raised in Rochester, New York Shelton-Demar Lewis’ love for acting came in at a young age. Shelton’s dad would always film our little skits.  Anytime we came up with something, my dad would get the camera and hit record. 
“Seeing people laughing and reacting to what my brothers and I put together sparked a flame in me that till this day burns bright. I love acting and entertaining.  It’s just who I am but now I want to use my gifts and talents to glorify GOD.” 
“When it’s all said and done the only thing that will really matter in life is what I do for GOD and who I was able to lead to HIM.  Nothing else matters if you don’t put GOD first in your life.”

D'Angelo Crawford

I am D’Angelo Crawford, a Buffalo, New York native, who relocated to Charlotte, NC.  I have always been a big movie buff and intrigue with the way television shows and film were constructed.  This passion is what persuaded me to take a job with Time Warner Cable, where I met Fred Forte Jr and Shelton-Demar Lewis, who was directing local pieces at the time.  We connected and they pulled open the curtain to how the famous “Movie Magic” was made.  Once I got a feel for it, I never looked back.
Since then we have worked together doing Dinner Theaters, Web series and Short Films.  With my eye for contacting and being engulfed in the actors portrayals, that helped uss keep our projects believable and relatable with the audience.  Our teamwork is one that is unmatched, and will continue to allow us to reach new heights in the future within this industry.
