By: Eye on Excellence Productions
Synopsis of “Mr. Real 2 Reel”:
In 1997, a four-time felon was released from South Carolina's most notorious super maximum prison. He walked out of those gates looking forward, determined to never go back again. He quickly fell, however, into the only world he had ever known, which was the business of selling drugs. But this time, he decided he no longer would sell cocaine, crack and guns. He instead turned to the black market and marijuana business for profit. But he believes that God had other plans and led him to the open call for Hype Williams’ feature film "BELLY," which he booked. That film introduced him to the movie world and has led him to become an award-winning actor and filmmaker. To see the video, please go to: http://youtu.be/
