BigPixCoverFinal

FORMAT: 35mm, Super 16mm, 16mm, HD, DV
DISTRIBUTION: Public access
PRODUCER: Trisha Barron
WRITER: Trisha Barron
SHOOTING LOCATION: Atlanta Georgia

SYNOPSIS:

What’s happening here is Mama is (somewhere, to be determined) talking to the audience. The goal is to introduce the main players and to let us know how she thinks and her motivation behind the concept of the Big Picture. The ideal of looking beyond what’s right in front of you. She is a mother and very serious about that role, she owns a bookstore, she has a sense of humor, a little dry but funny, she is very nurturing to all. She is not a Madea but maybe her calm, smart, classy sister. Here is a link to her background and some strips. http://jerrycraft.net/mamasboyz.html

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

Tyrell
Tyrell is my oldest son, he’s 18 years old. Some would say he’s kind of shy. He is a senior in high school. I think he wants a girlfriend.

Yusef
Yusef is my 16 year old. I hate say it but he is more popular and more athletic and taller than his brother Tyrell. He loves sneakers and clothes. He’s pretty popular with the girls. It may seem he’s more independent than his older brother, but Tyrell is his best bud.

Grandpa
My father lives upstairs. He’s a retired chef. He likes to cook and listen to Jazz. I keep telling him he needs to change the way he cooks, like doing less frying and more baking. I’m working on it.

Uncle Gregg
Gregory Tisdale is my baby brother. The kids call him Uncle Greggo. He is 32 years old. He likes music, movies and video games as much as my sons, so of course he gets along well with Yusef and Tyrell. He owns a computer graphics and consulting company. I say he’s afraid of commitment and he’s cheap.

Keisha
Keisha helps me out in the bookstore, when she’s not in school. Keisha is the daughter that I never had. She is 18 years old like Tyrell. Keisha actually dated Tyrell for a very short time, but now they are just great friends. (Keisha strip coming soon)

Sara
Sara goes to school with Tyrell and Yusef. She’s a fashionista. She tells me she likes to take here moms old clothes and make them stylish, she calls it a retro look.. I believe she has a crush on Tyrell.

Sam
Sam goes to school with my sons. He loves baseball. He knows every stat about every team. He’s a walking database, well at least in the things he wants to be.
