I Wanna Introduce You To A Very Special Lady

I want you to meet Tina.

For the last few years I have been looking for talented writers and directors who I could help reach their dreams. Those who have the gift but haven't had the opportunity. Those who are gifted at storytelling. Well, in my search of many I have found a few that I'm working on helping, but there was one that is so special and so unique that she is ready now.  Her name is Tina Gordon Chism. She is a writer and a first-time director. She has a new movie coming out on May 10th that I'm presenting called PEEPLES. This movie is hysterical. She did such a great job. I'm so proud of her.

I must tell you, it makes me feel great to be able to help usher her to her dreams. I love seeing the underdog get their shot. If y'all didn't put me in this position I couldn't help her. So thank you. I feel that there is much more room in this business and this is my first attempt at opening this door for another writer-director. I'm excited about the possibility and I'm excited about her… a young African-American woman getting her first shot. This is really cool.

I want you to go out and support her movie, PEEPLES. It is so funny. Craig Robinson and Kerry Washington lead an all-star cast in this comedy and they will truly have you laughing out loud. I'm very proud of this movie and I'm very proud of Tina. I'm telling you, you won't be disappointed. The movie is great and Tina is very special. Let's show her some love, OK?

I'll be talking to you about it as we get a little closer.

PEEPLES in theaters May 10th. GO TINA!!!!

    Good morning, Tyler. As you can see, I posted my comment last night before going to bed and I'm posting another first thing this morning. I believe it's time for my break. I'm a woman pregnant with a dream, and I just know that it's time for this BABY TO BE BORN. I'm a starving artist, and it's not because I don't do good art because my art is very unique, but people just don't have the money to buy original art these days. In 2008, Bishop Paul and Debra Morton bought a portrait of yours I did with strings and gave to you. My name is on the back of this art. I'm a gifted writer and have written several scripts including family animated, inspirational and historical fiction. I understand you're looking for writers and directors to give a break in this business and I hope to be one of them. I'm a Madea fan and I wrote a 119 page screenplay on Madea that is crazy and funny; I know you and your fans will love it. I also wrote two thirty minute episodes of FOR BETTER OR WORSE that are riveting, and you 'll be blown away. I've tried several times to reach you and nothing worked; I believe it's my time and this time I'll hear from you. Thank you.

    Hello, Tyler. I'm a gifted and aspiring female writer. I'm also a string artist, and in 2008, Bishop Paul and Debra Morton bought a portrait of yours I did with strings and gave to you. I understand you're looking for gifted writers and directors to usher into the film business, and I hope to be one of them. I wrote a 119 page screenplay on Madea, and it's a script to die for. I also wrote two 30 minute episodes of For Better For Worse that are riveting; you just wait until you see it, you'll be blown away. Let's talk. Thank you for helping other writers.

    Good Morning Tyler, Oh how happy I am to hear about this movie, I will be sure to check it out! It's funny that you mentioned looking for writers and directors. I of course am a writer, not so sure about being a director, we'll see, one never knows what the future may hold. I am hoping that you will take the opportunity to sew a seed of blessing into my future and help make my dreams come true by blessing me with an AC adaptor for my laptop. Mine has been acting up recently and this is the first time I have used my computer in about a week and a half. My laptop is older and will not hold a charge, so I have to keep it plugged in for it to work, so if God leads you to purchase a new laptop instead, I won't complain. I look forward to checking Peeples out and will let you know how it was. Sincerely, Veronica
