Charity Red Carpet Premiere of Pollywood Nights

On Friday, November 19, 2010, as my debut as a producer, my film "Pollywood Nights" premiered at the Navy Memorial Museum at the Heritage Center.  The documentary spotlights the fusion of politics, media and celebrity in the Obama era and showcases Pollywood the "place" following four "characters", Jehan Carter "The Jack of All Trades" (myself), Kelechi Kalu "The Captiol Hill Player", Kate Michael "The Entrepreneur" and Bill Twilde "The Artist" and our professional and social lives in Washington, DC.  Viewers follow these four characters as their proximity to power offers a new outlook on the political, philanthropic, entrepreneurial and social scenes, which truly come alive at night.

In the spirit of the philanthropic aspect of "Pollywood", the film premiere was also a fundraiser benefiting a local charity called Luke's Wings.  Luke's Wings, is an organization that provides travel planning services and airplane tickets for the families of wounded warriors currently hospitaized at medical and rehabilitation centers all over the country.  The intimate crowd at the event raised over a $1,000 for the charity.

Check out the official film trailer featured in this article.  The film will makes it TV premiere on DCTV this winter.  Visit www.pollywoodnights.com for more pics from the event, film updates and film info.
