A Sunday Kinfolk Story (Intro and Casting) + Hamilton Multimedia, LLC
”What if Superman grew up as a black boy in America?”
Written by D. Verrtah, Marcus Smith (Behind The Lens), Russell Hamilton (Multimedia), King Texas (Creative Director) and myself, Renata Cherlise (Creative Director and Creator of Lost in Urbanism + Sunday Kinfolk)
While staring in the face of racism, this story follows a young man’s journey as he comes to terms with his identity. As we extract events from America’s history and weave them with fictional undertones, we explore the truth behind his mother’s legacy, his father’s affiliation with the movement and the makings of a black superhero.
This montage sets the climate for an upcoming Sunday Kinfolk story and multimedia production. As the story spans several generations and eras, we have several roles to fill.
* Production will take place in Metropolis (Chicago)
Thank you everyone for viewing the video to this story and spreading the word. Although we’ve received a pretty fair amount of inquiries, we’re still accepting submissions.. Especially black women. If you know anyone who may fit the roles, send them our way.
As we’re using several mediums with this story, we’re not necessarily looking for just actors and folks who may model but rather expressive creatives.
