From Felonies to Films: Gritty New Indie Film Blood First Brings Street Life to the Big Screen
Filmed on location in one of America’s most dangerous neighborhoods, Blood First chronicles the lives of two brothers who haphazardly follow their father's footsteps into a dangerous life of crime and violence. When faced with serving lengthy prison sentences for their crimes one brother chooses to cooperate with the prosecution while the other does not, testing the meaning of loyalty, honor and blood. The film’s non-linear storytelling fluidly mixes the past with the present as audiences experience what events occurred in their lives to make these men who they are today.
Blood First, which is slated for release in 2014, boasts a powerful score by multiplatinum music producer Drumma Boy and original music by Project Pat, Big KRIT, Turk (of the Hot Boyz), 8 Ball, MJG, Akil Esoon and Emanuel “Manny” DeAnda (former lead singer of Pretty Ricky). Blood First has been rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). View the trailer at http://www.youtube.com/
