Dear Philadelphia is the brain child of, director, Renee Osubu and plays as a poetic time capsule showcasing North Philadelphia. For this project, I was asked to complement Renee and Cinematographer Louis Lopez's style.
The film premiered in the UK on the British Film Institute's Player and had it's international premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. It went on to win the Jury Award at Blackstar Film Festival and is now a qualifier for the 94th Academy Awards. It can now be viewed worldwide as a Vimeo Staff Pick .
Indiewire says it was " one of the best short films played at Sundance. "

This is a compilation of documentary work I've filmed for production companies such as, Freshfly, LLC and international corporate, nonprofit, and independent work. Some of these projects have been able to help people build schools for children who would otherwise not have them, help communities heal from chemical abuse, and promote cultures in the African diaspora that are often not seen. I am proud of this work and excited to include more.
