DON’T TAKE YES FOR AN ANSWER
Imagine you have a dream to create your own episodic series. You enter a three minute pitch video and win the $25,000 top prize! That’s what happened last year to Miami’s Haitian-American filmmakers, actors and roommates Edson Jean and Joshua Jean-Baptiste. Dream come true? Not so fast, because Edson Jean doesn’t take YES for an answer.
Join Edson, Joshua and Festival director Jaie Laplante as they discuss the journey from shooting no-budget test-episodes to working on a new Miami set project in the community that inspired them. Learn why these two vibrant creatives are committed to telling homegrown tales and how their partnership made it possible.
Special thanks to producer Andrew Hevia.
