Screening at the upcoming Urbanworld Film Festival September 14-18... The film is called Make A Movie Like Spike; it stars Malcolm Goodwin and Jamil Smith, and is directed by J. Smith.

Its story goes... armed with dreams that extend beyond their block, Luis and Ronald, two best friends from Los Angeles, both Marines, videotape their last 36 hours before being shipped off to Afghanistan, capturing themselves, their friends, family members and places they call home.

Luis is an aspiring filmmaker and Ronald wants to see the world and start a family.

The film made its world premier at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) in February, and has been touring the film festival circuit since then, with the Urbanworld Film Festival as its next stop. Reactions from those I know who've seen it at previous festivals has been positive, so I'm looking forward to checking it out myself in a week or two, with a review to follow of course.

Making good use of social media, you can find the film on Facebook, Twitter, and its own website.

Check out the trailer below:

    Don't know what type of filmmaker Jamil Walker Smith is, but I can attest for his acting ability. The guy is an incredible performer.
