David’s Reverie

Elevator Pitch: DAVID’S REVERIE, starring Brandon Fobbs (“The Wire”, “Walking Dead”), tells the story of an up-and-coming jazz musician whose dream of leading his jazz band to a broader audience is halted when he is diagnosed with epilepsy.
With each seizure, David is transported to a fantasy world where he hears music like he’s never heard before. David fights to reconcile managing this disorder while fighting to play the music inside him.

Production Team:

Writer & DIrector: Neil Creque Williams
Producers: Channing Godfrey Peoples, Erik Douglas, Delmar Washington
Cinematographer: Nathaniel Krause
Composer: Andrae Alexander
Production Designer: Jamie Holt
Choreographer: Marika Piday-Warren

**Recipient of the Panavision New Filmmakers Grant**

About the Production: I was diagnosed with epilepsy as a child and experienced uncontrollable seizures as a teenager.
I’ve always wanted to tell a story about a character dealing with this disorder while pursuing his passion.

Paul Mccloud

You overwelm me with your remarkable work and passion.


Channing Godfrey Peoples is an amazing young actor, writer, director, producer. Destine for fame and critical acclaim, her latest work is as producer of "David's Reverie." Working with an outstanding group of young film professions, including writer/director Neil Creque Willams, this project exposes the affect living with epilepsy has on the career of a young jazz trumpeteer.

Please contribute if you can and support otherwise by asking your friends to support; by contributing and asking their friends to join in. This is the next generation of filmmakers that will tell our stories. Give them a hand up. Thx!!!
