Area of filmmaking: Directing, Cinematography & Acting
I’ve known about this program since its launch back in 2016 and this is the first year I felt comfortable and confident enough to apply. This is what I love to call divine timing, I am so grateful to know that this is where I am suppose to be. Everything about this program affirms my vision and mission, it only makes sense for me to be a part of a progressive conscious collective of filmmakers that look like me. Thank you to my ancestors!
I am Nallah Brown (pronounced like Na-la from the Lion King) and I am a 22 year-old from Houston, Texas & Atlanta, Georgia. My family raised me to be a conscious, caring, and creative being with a whole lot to give. I am currently studying broadcast journalism and sociology at Florida A&M University, with a graduation date set for December of 2019. I am a documentarian and student of life. I consider everyone my teacher, understanding that there is so much we can learn from one another. My young life as a storyteller has invoked my thirst for knowledge and passion for reading/research. Love is my priority in this life, therefore I am always thinking about how I can foster more connections with people everywhere I go.
