Well I figured that it wouldn’t take long.
Yesterday, I reported that there was a film version of Shay Youngblood’s novel, Black Girl In Paris, currently in production, starring Tracey Heggins from Medicine for Melancholy, and British actress Zaraah Abrahams.
I even posted a short video interview with Ms. Abrahams in which she confirmed that she was currently working on the film.
The only problem was, as hard as we tried, we couldn’t find ANY information about the film, especially with regards to who was involved the behind the camera.
Well, guess what? I was contacted by the producer of the film (Kiara C. Jones) who let me know that she is indeed producing the film through her production company Cultivated Films. The director is Kiandra Parks whose previous work was the 2010 short film Candy.
The director of photography is Shlomo Godder, who is shooting the film on Kodak 35mm on a Panavision Platnum camera (YAY! FILM STILL LIVES!).
Check out the on-set photos below:
Ms. Jones also sent along these stills from the production set; the film is being targeted for a 2013 release.
