Process

True First Series / Process

START WITH A GREAT IDEA

FIRST STEP
The concept for True First comes from Studio Auteur and its founder, Producer Jerald Harkness. The subsequent scripting for the series stays true to the historical record, which isn’t always complete given that we’re resurrecting many of the pioneers of African descent who have been forgotten over time. The result is what we hope is an engaging, thought-provoking and original retelling of these wonderful stories.

ESTABLISH PARTNERSHIPS

SECOND STEP
Making great films and documentaries takes money. Before loading the film into the camera, we needed to gather together a team that could secure funding for the first season, ensure wide distribution, and provide both the technical skill and content expertise to get the project off the ground. With RLJ Entertainment, Nimble Sage Productions, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Studio Auteur and the Urban Movie Channel on board, we’ve got our bases covered.

ADD AN OUTSTANDING CAST

THIRD STEP
To play the roles of these legendary historical figures, we’ve assembled an ensemble cast of talented professionals who share our passion for the True First project. They’re actors, comedians and producers in their own right who bring a wealth of Hollywood and Broadway experience to breathing life into the narrative of these fabled firsts.

PRODUCTION

Fourth Step
The first season of True First is now in production, beginning with the filming of “Stagecoach Mary”. The tentative completion date for all eight episodes is mid-July 2018, after which the series is slated to debut on the Urban Movie Channel.

POST PRODUCTION

Fifth Step
This is where the magic happens, taking hours of raw footage and turning them into the polished episodes of True First. Special sound and visual effects are added, original music layered into the soundtrack, and after interminable hours of hard work, our project is ready for screening.
