There is just something about Indie Films that make them a joy to watch? Is it the Fearless Storytelling? Compelling Characters? Unique Locations? Perspectives not realized on the big screen? I’d say it is all of those ideas and more. Now when the Indie Film is a Short Film; it is very interesting to see how the visuals, acting and story mesh in span of a few minutes. Tattooed Tears is one of those films that successfully tells a compelling story. It is an Arion Digital Media Group film. Directed by Aaron Lewis, Written by Alverne Ball. Produced by Alverne Ball, Gregory Ball & Aaron Lewis. Check it out below and let us know your thoughts. Enjoy!
“When The World Is Blind”
“When The World Is Blind is taken from the Black Salt Film and Soundtrack. Performed by Mimoza with lyrics by Hillary Bernstein. I enjoyed the music and her vocals. Per the site, Black Salt is an action film project based on the critically acclaimed comic book franchise. The story is an epic thriller merging the world of modern-day espionage and political intrigue with the ancient world of martial arts.. Take a look at the video and $upport the project!

About Bar Star City:
A goddess, a war veteran and the captain of a spaceship meet in a bar…
Bar Star City is a sci-fi film with Afrofuturist themes. It looks at love, deception, memory and alienation among a group of bar regulars with unique, quirky personalities, who just want a place to call home.
What I LOVE about the trailer is a) The Science Fiction story/premise with Blacks/People of African Descent actors/actresses! That’s not often! 🙂 and b) The storytelling element of Jazz! I instantly thought of Spike Lee’s films because Jazz has been a strong element in his storytelling. Ms. Womack is bringing the futuristic soul and imagiative element of jazz as a character..in a sci-fi movie!! Awesome!!
This looks like an exciting project shot entirely in Chicago, a city with unique architecture, neighborhoods and nuances that will be great to see on film.
Ytasha L. Womack is looking for supporters and backers to help fund additional pre-production! If you want strong and unique stories of characters that look like you: then you must support the efforts and projects that will bring the dream to reality. I will!
