Mayhem # 13887
My name is J.R. Lee and I am an independent filmmaker and CEO of Shipboard Filmworks Inc. Born in Detroit Mi, I joined the United States Navy in 1988 and still serving as an active Boatswain Mate Chief Petty Officer to date.
The "Never Too Late" premier was a complete success and the film is doing very well. The film is in works with a distribution deal with ITN distribution along with "Silver Nitrate".
Next on the platform is my 2nd feature film entitled "Get Some" a basketball story of the streetballers. The film will star the lovely "Simply Sonya" of model mayhem as Vanessa. Production will start in Sept of 06' and the film will hit the streets in Jan 07'.
Two commercials are on the air now in the Va area. One is "NYC Celebrites" hair salon and the other is "Davis Photography".
