Nicole Franklin's Microbudget Feature TITLE VII to Film This Coming Summer
The cast includes Yolonda Ross (Go For Sisters, Stranger Inside, Treme), Benton Greene (Blue Bloods, Gossip Girl, Father Comes Home From The Wars), Stelio Savante (Eisenstein In Guanajuato, The Making Of The Mob: New York, Where The Road Runs Out) and award winning cinematographer Cybel Martin (And...Scene, a Woman's Journey to Walk Again, Flora's Garment Bursting into Bloom, Sangam) will be heading up the crew.TITLE VII tells the story of a skilled black woman who lands a technology firm position over the objection of the company's black CEO. She challenges the corporate culture, forcing the CEO to face his personal demons; a lifelong struggle with his skin color. The screenplay was co-written by Franklin and Craig T. Williams, adapted from the novel Within the Walls by Daisy M. Jenkins. The film is a co-production of EPIPHANY, Inc. (Franklin's multimedia company) and FDUFilm, the film program of Fairleigh Dickinson University. The multicultural production will include a professional crew staffed by female department leaders. TITLE VII will be shot July 2016 on the FDU campus in Florham Park, NJ and will serve as a learning laboratory for FDU film students. Franklin's live Indiegogo campaign can be found HERE.
