About Clayton

I've been directing narrative film since 1999, which includes an award winning feature film and numerous short films that either screened on national television or at film festivals all over the world. My first feature film Pro-Black Sheep won best film at the Black International Cinema Berlin Film Festival in 2010. One of my earlier scripts was a finalist at the 2005 Worldfest International Film Festival's dramatic screenplay competition, and one of my last scripts was optioned by Academy Award winning actor Forest Whitaker in 2012. Also in 2012, I started doing 2D Animation to add to and enhance my motion picture storytelling capabilities and options.
