Ok, I’m still floating on air from my AMAZING opportunity!! Yours Truly was the OFFICIAL photographer for the #RACEmovie Atlanta press tour with lead actor Stephan James, Liquid Soul Media and FOCUS Features Group. Last night’s red carpet & screening was explosive with movers and shakers including Ludacris, Ambassador Andrew Young, Kathleen Bertrand, Jussie T Usher, Regina Belle, host Kim Fields and so much more!!
I had a chance to spend a little time with Stephan last year during a media meet & greet. (See previous post). This time I spent the entire weekend photographing Stephan’s journey to our local radio & tv stations, schools and the very popular showcase… Honda’s Battle of the Bands. Needless to say, I have SOOO much to share but in the meantime take a look at some of the fun red carpet pics.
I was especially proud and happy to see ALL of the wonderful support that came out for this film. I’ve covered many screenings here and THIS was one the greatest… filling 3 theaters! The love & excitement in the atmosphere was extremely strong… and all of the hugs & smiles were so genuine.
Stay tuned for my @RACEmovie review & adventures! Be sure to bring your entire family and friends to watch out this pivotal time in history on the big screen… in theaters on February 19th!
Based on the true story of Jesse Owens, the legendary athletic whose quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy. “Race” is an enthralling film about courage, determination, tolerance, and friendship, and an inspiring drama about one man’s fight to become an Olympic legend.
Sending a very special thanks to @GoLiquidSoul for this dream come true 🙂
