Dear Ms. Michelle,
I returned home with filled with enthusiasm and excitement from my experience at the 2nd Annual Las Vegas Black Film Festival. Ms. Michelle, you and your team really put together a magnificent celebration of talented Black independent filmmakers.
As I mentioned, I think the festive venue and the organizational structure is extremely supportive and inclusive of a wide variety of concerns independent filmmakers; creating access opportunities to an audience and industry business representatives, confronted as obstacles in mainstream industry. Your festival positively supports the interest of Black independent filmmakers. I really appreciate the all-inclusive design of the festival, which accommodates a full range of Black independent filmmakers' needs and concerns-both in the business and artistic sectors of the industry.
I especially owe Ms. Michelle, Ladonna and the festival staff a deep sense of gratitude for making me so welcomed; a feeling I will always remember and pass it on to my fellow filmmakers in the Washington DC area. It was a total surprise to me when "Silk and Thorns" was selected to represent The Best Screenplay Award for the 2015 Las Vegas Black Film Festival. I never expected it but, it is something? of which I am profoundly? proud, honored and humbled.
Thank you Ms. Michelle and thank you to all the great staff for this wonderful experience.

The Tommy Ford Actors Boot Camp was such an invaluable part of my son Braxton's development as an actor. Tommy imparted a new level of understanding that he will never forget and challenged him in ways he has never experienced. This was so vital for his future & career as well as his
journey towards perfecting his craft! Tommy proved he really cares about these talented aspiring actors by going
over an hour & a half past the allotted 2 hrs to spend time with them giving many helpful nuggets & tips to bring out the best in all of them. His time and expertise was greatly appreciated.
The Actor's Showdown was a fun & awesome display of extraordinary talent! What a great platform for these actors to show their stuff and receive priceless critiques from industry professionals who really know their stuff!
Simply amazing! Thank you!
