With each new week we try to bring a new piece of content, and staying true to that mantra (this week) we've started the "Meet the Characters" series.

We'll be introducing you to some of the folks that appear in Episode 1, and as time progresses, we just might introduce you to some folks that pop up in Episode 2.

READY FOR EPISODE 2?
We're in the editing room on Episode 2 as you read this and for interested folks, there's a little something special at the end of the "Meet Nicole" video that you might appreciate. As it stands, we're holding on to our view threshold, but there are some characters and story lines that we're excited to introduce and feel that the folks who are taking a liking to the show deserve the reward of "first looks". Watch the video below and follow the instructions if interested...

Meet Nicole


DOUBLE DOWN FILM SHOW
I know not everybody listens live, so be sure to check out the last 2 episodes of my Double Down Film Show Podcast. We featured the creator and producer of Queen Hussy (LISTEN HERE) as well as Shadow and Act's Tambay Obenson (LISTEN HERE). We've got 76 hours of FREE content for you to enjoy and learn from, and some interviews in the pipeline from some dope filmmaking Shadow and Act regulars.

NEXT UP
We're working on a new educational/how-to piece, hopefully for next week. I'll keep y'all posted on that. In the meantime, keep creating and making it happen.

Onward,

Pete Chatmon
