Here's the latest update on Soft Focus, the forthcoming drama by Rod Gailes OBC, winner of the 2nd Shadow & Act Filmmaker Challenge. The film is currently in post production, inching steadily toward a release on this site, which will be accompanied by a motion picture soundtrack release as well.

Here's the official synopsis of the film:

"Clean heart, clean mind, clean deed." Marcus is a young man with a choice to make: continue with the curious boyhood obligations imposed by his religiously zealous mother or step into a colorful world of adult choices and consequences. Partnered with his good friend Niecy, he chooses the latter, diving headlong into a night of carnal adventure complete with balloons, birthday cake, and Kunta, another young traveler on the road to self discovery. Can Marcus untie the ritual apron strings of a repressed home life to pursue his own version of manhood? Jehovah only knows.

Find photos from the film below. And to follow the production's progress, visit their site on Tumblr.

Marcus comes home.
