On Saturday, December 2nd, a few friends and I got together with the Black Writers Guild of Maryland to form a panel entitled From Journey From Book to the Big Screen. It was one of the best meeting the Guild has ever had. In addition to myself, the panel featured author and filmmaker, Teresa Davis, rapper, videographer, and filmmaker, Kang Cole, Filmmaker and designer, Devin J. Ricks, and filmmaker Jamelle Williams-Thomas.
We discussed everything from when Jamelle first read Water In A Broken Glass to how to write a screenplay. Also, several members of the Guild pitched their novels to Jamelle, Devin, Teresa, and Cole to get feedback on what it would take to adapt their books to a movie.
I had an absolute ball and so did the members of the Guild.
