About Melvin

I'm a film director and an award winning professional educator with several projects in development and in production and I'm currently building a comprehensive production company, The Bankrupt Cinema, LLC.

Currently, my shorts are being screened at various festivals, and we are currently working on a slate of films and TV pilots. I love drama and procedural content and am creating AfroFuturist content as well (more specifically, a subgenre I call Negrofuturism which focuses solely on black people spread around the world but not specifically connected to Africa, ie Afro Latinos, Afro Asians, American Blacks, etc.).

As an educator, my students won 1st place in the HP Digital Assist competition, co-sponsored by the NBA, and were awarded over $87,000 in equipment and prizes. My students have also screened in the Texas High School competition at SXSW (South by Southwest Film Festival), earned scholarships and grants in filmmaking, won Lone Star Emmy Awards and have matriculated to top tier film schools including but not limited to the University of Texas at Austin.

I currently resides in Houston, TX with his family and splits my time between the east coast (he was born and raised in NJ) and gulf coast.
