"New Edition Biopic Trailer?! (swipe)"


  

          

http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact/a-new-edition-biopic-might-be-coming-to-a-theater-near-you-if-this-fan-made-trailer-goes-viral-20150225

https://vimeo.com/120542070

A few readers alerted me to this today, and I wanted to get as much info as I could on it before writing about it here (to be honest, I initially wasn't sure if it was a *real* project or not. It is). But then I thought I'd just go ahead and, at least, let you know that it exists, while I wait to learn more from the filmakers.

So, here you go...

What I know thus far:

- "NE Heartbreak The Movement" is creative team that comprises of New Edition fans, who hope to eventually produce a feature film that tells the groups story. To help raise awareness for the project, The Movement has put together what they're calling a "sneak peek" trailer, asking that, if you're as much of a New Edition fan as they are, you should help spread the word about the collective's efforts to bring the R&B group's story to the big screen.

- The film will be directed by Bobby Huntley **(NVYNCIBLE1)**, an independent filmmaker from Atlanta, and produced by Nikki Wade. The rest of the production team includes cinematographer Calisha Prince **(CALIALIVE)**; lighting designer Mark Alston; post-production designer and sound editor, Brandon Cordy **(BTOUCH)** & hair professional Jameelah Crump. All of them are part of a team of New Edition fans who spent 6 weeks auditioning for the cast, and another 6-week period of rehearsals, to shoot the fan-made trailer embedded below, which they say was created with no budget.

All the above information was found on the project's website, which you can access here. There you'll find a bit more on the project, and those behind it.

You can also follow the project on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

i snarked off, but it IS confusing

snark retracted

the first post of the post makes it seem like she has nothing to do with it

the latter part clearly mentions herself and the director

either way, i am checking for it

and i knew about it from the convo
over there (ill leave it at that)

since the title was with a question mark
then the write up was in first person


then i saw that the poster is part of the production
i was confused
as sh!t

i knew you and the director
was part of it


her disclaimer and title needs to be more clear
honestly i think that you havent had as many replies
due to how the original post was written
IMO

Y'all not reading and then asking me questions that could be answered if you read the post.

It's a SWIPE from an article written on the project.

I added the okp names to the gov't so we don't have to have the "i think the director is an okp" speculation

I even added asterisks to explain what I did and still...

Bruh.
