Greeting Beautiful Family and Friends!Emoji

How are you? I trust that you and your beautiful families are doing well! April 1 is my Granddaddy’s Birthday.  Happy Birthday Mr. Jesse Dukes! He went home to be with the Lord when I was 15. I continue to have nothing but fond memories of him! He had a nickname for most of us and mine was “Messy”! He certainly named me right because I am nothing short of a “Hot Mess”! He didn’t give us a lot of money and other material things.  But he showered all of us with LOTS of LOVE! He had an uncanny way of making all of his numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren feel that we were his favorite!
As you can see, I am feeling rather nostalgic today! As you celebrate Spring being in the air, I encourage you to love, encourage, support and appreciate all of your family and friends! Can you join me in working hard to make sure that our legacy to our loved ones is one that will make them reflect on our goodness for decades to come? Please enjoy April Leslie’s Lane and I trust that it blesses you indeed! Have a great week!
Thanks so much to State Representative Rahn Mayo for this great info!

The Entertainment Industry: Writing and Producing Stories

Friday, April 11. 2:00 p.m-4:00 p.m

Kevin Collins is an accomplished writer with nearly twenty years of experience in the entertainment industry. He has worked for several large studios, including Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros. and DreamWorks. After a decade on the corporate side of Hollywood, he caught the writing bug, and began screenwriting. Soon thereafter, he garnered a spot in Bill Cosby’s Screenwriting Fellowship Program at USC’s film school. Later, he would join the production staff of the Showtime series “Soul Food,” where he learned invaluable knowledge about storytelling and production. Kevin now resides in Atlanta, where he is a screenwriting professor for both television and film. He currently teaches for the Atlanta campus of the Savannah College of Art and Design, and periodically offers summer workshops for the Atlanta Film Festival. Kevin has also authored his first novel, “The Unveiling: 1.0,” the premiere book of an upcoming trilogy. Come learn about storytelling, and the entertainment industry: how Hollywood works, and the difference between film and TV. Kevin will also read an excerpt from his recent novel, “The Unveiling.”
