The Strawberry Letters Film Project
This is a love story with plenty of comedy and a little drama. The two key players, Andre and Omolara, are good people in bad relationships with a common associate, J.D. J.D. decides to play match maker of sorts and introduce Andre to Omolara who he believes would be great together. J.D. must however, orchestrate it all in secret while juggling various obstacles including trying to manage his own relationship. J.D's plan seems to have failed, but in the end somehow miraculously comes to fruition.
This project is intended to be a vehicle to those who are talented, gifted, have a flair, have a dream and the work ethic to be creative and perform. This project is intended to create opportunites and provide exposure for some truly artistic people both in front of and behind the camera. This project is intended to entertain you, make you laugh, make you smile, make you cry and make you rejoice. Once upon a time there was a basketball player who got very little playing time. A friend and I cheered for this guy so much so we had our whole section shouting his name. Having heard the fans screaming for him the coach told him to go ahead and go back into the game. The player was able to really show what he could do. This player is now one of the more famous and celebrated players in the world today. My friend and I are elated feeling we played a part in his success as he now entertains millions. This project is intended for you, those who would be overjoyed in telling that same type of story, allowing you to bask in a glossy-eyed glee and euphoria.
Invest in our project because it is the way of the world to be rewarded for hard work. And believe me, we've worked hard on this project. Invest because there's something in it for you, we have great perks and you'll be apart of a great film. Invest because of the film maker inside of you. Invest because we have a poplular theme that has lasted through time and we can produce a quality film. Invest because we'll be truly grateful and appreciative and we'll be your friend for the rest of your life.

We are preparing to begin shooting in early October 2012 in Sacramento and the bay area. We have our film crew waiting and ready.
