Reel Shorts | Here Comes the Neighborhood

24 06 2008

Houston-native Marc Newsome is another of four filmmaker finalists featured in the Chase Legacy Film Challenge presented by Blackfilm.com.

“Here Comes the Neighborhood” is a satirical short comedy chronicling the effects of the gentrification of a fictitious African American neighborhood, Our Legacy Estates. Told in vignette form we glimpse into the lives of the homeowners and the opportunists who desire their homes.

Newsome is a film lover turned filmmaker. His initial knowledge of the mechanics of filmmaking comes from volunteering on movie and music video sets as well as creating his own productions. His cinematic prowess stems from a self-propelled passion to create. He enjoys several aspects of creating movies including shooting, editing, and writing. His background is in the world of graphic design and recently photography. His photos have been included in three art exhibitions over the past year. He has produced several short films and is the producer of the music documentary Electric Purgatory (directed by Raymond Gayle) about African American rock musicians. He has never attended film school.
