ATLANTA - Sept. 15, 2016 - PRLog -- Atlanta's top tiered women in film and entertainment are rallying behind content creator, Devyne Johnson of Artefakets Entertainment as she kicks off a seven-city tour of her company's first feature film, MOSAIC on September 19th with a private VIP screening set for media and special guests. After the screening, Johnson will lead a panel discussion about the future of independent filmmakers in the industry. She will be joined by Cheryl Jenkins, President of WIFTA, Lorraine Cochran-Johnson, General Manager of Atlanta Daily World, and DeEtta West of UPtv.

In an industry where key decisions are often held by male influencers, it was Devyne Johnson, an Atlanta-based content creator who financed the project, hired key department heads and Devyne who directed the feature film, MOSAIC. Johnson took this route largely to defy the norms of industry methodology and represent the audacity of unknown, yet deserving artists. "As a content creator, I'm answerable to my conscious of creativity.  Self-financing and self-distribution are bold decisions, but I believe wholeheartedly in my dreams. I had to honor my art by ensuring its place in the world, and I owed it to the other artisans who contributed to MOSAIC to showcase their talent as well."

Both Jenkins and West have extensive backgrounds in the entertainment industry while Cochran offers the perspective of a media executive with over 15 years of experience in print media and marketing.

Best described as "War Room" meets  "August: Osage County," "MOSAIC" is a film about a family unaware of quiet destructive patterns that put them on a collision course to deal with these issues. The story's main character, Ruth Anderson, is an ambitious, divorced mother with misplaced priorities and shattered relationships with her immediate family. Hardly an uncommon concern for families, Johnson's storytelling will shed light on themes relatable to all while offering moments of key reflection that presents healing and hope for families yearning for healthy functionality at its core. MOSAIC will kick off in Atlanta and will make stops in Charlotte, Raleigh, D.C., Nashville, Chicago and L.A. Tickets are available at http://www.MosaicMovie.com.

Devyne, whose background is in Costume Design is credited for working on films and television shows such as Atlanta (FX), Stranger Things (Netflix), Halt & Catch Fire (AMC) and the Ride Along franchise. She has worked with producers such as Donald Glover (Childish Gambino), Shawn Levy, Will Packer, Rob Hardy, Kevin Hart and Ice Cube (just to name a few).

In January 2016, Johnson and her production team were commissioned to create, produce and direct a short film, "What Kings are Made of" (http://www.artefaekts.com/wkamo)  for the TV series, "Live@9:30." (http://www.liveat930.com/pages/the-show). The show is nationally broadcast by NPR & PBS. Her 3-minute segment, "What Kings are Made of" is a hybrid of live action and animation, featured in Episode 4. What Kings Are Made Of is slated to air nationally this fall and will coincide with MOSAIC's release.
