ONE LOVE: BRICKSQUAD (Volume 2) (book 1 of the One Love Series)

the project

This film will benefit the community by providing awareness of inner city struggles and obstacles for our Cleveland youth, and present opportunities for education and jobs in the film industry for our youth. This project's principal goal is to shed light on what it was like to be a student at the Cleveland School of the Arts (Upper Campus) from the perspective of an alumni sharing her interpretation of what the Cleveland School of the Arts represented to her.

We are seeking funds for production of a feature length project that will be produced in the greater Cleveland area. Looking also to give student credit to interns and to be able to feed, house, dress and groom actors who are in principal roles. Seeking to hire extras and volunteers.

the steps

  • Rape crisis center


why we're doing it

Youth in the greater Cleveland area are underserved, undervalued and essentially underrepresented and seen as adults when they are indeed children that deserve to be acknowledged for their trauma, their contributions to society and they must be educated on high-risk behaviors and see with their eyes the dangers of their current actions. I hope to teach the youth of my city what can happen when you have low self-esteem and experience peer pressure and abuse. It is my hope to lower the crime rate, pregnancy rate, gang violence/drugs, and to lower HIV/AIDS cases. this story is indeed fiction inspired by my real-life experiences I had as a Cleveland school of the arts student in 2005 to 2011.
