Local film companies team up to tackle race relations

  • Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Have you ever wondered what happens at these celebrity rehab clinics? There seems to be one for every issue imaginable. Jason Gourdine of Crown Vision Media and Geno and Dominic DiMaria of Block One Studios are bringing the experience to the big screens. Over the course of filming their first project together, “Dominion: Media Matters,” racial tension seemed to be at an all-time high since the L.A. riots.

The celebrity blunders from the likes of Paula Dean, Adrien Browder and Donald Sterling only added to the tension.

“We found that most people get so blind with rage when these comments are made, that they miss how unqualified these individuals are to make any such statements,” says Gourdine.

That's when the award-winning filmmakers realized, “There has to be a story in the madness.” So, they enlisted a diverse writing staff, all with different perspectives and experiences with race and racism.

The filmmakers see an opportunity to use satire to address a national issue. A few major acts have agreed to join the production, and a open casting call will be held locally to tap into the emerging Charleston talent.
