Director’s Statement

As the executive producer, screenwriter, and a director of “Interview With A King,” I am honored to bring my diverse background and experiences to this remarkable project. This animated short film holds immense significance for me, as it represents the culmination of a lifelong commitment to service, history, and storytelling. 

My journey in the military and academia has shaped my perspective on leadership, social change, and the power of historical understanding. With a distinguished career spanning several assignments and positions, including my final active-duty assignment as Deputy Chief of Staff, G-1 Army Forces Command, I have had the privilege of serving alongside extraordinary individuals and witnessing the impact of their actions on the world. 

My academic pursuits have further deepened my appreciation for history and its relevance to contemporary society. As the first African American to obtain a doctorate from the Department of History at Texas A&M University, I have dedicated my research and writing to shedding light on pivotal moments in history and their lasting implications. 

In my role as the executive producer, screenplay author, and a director of “Interview With A King,” I have approached this project with utmost dedication and a profound sense of responsibility. Drawing from my expertise in history and leadership, I have meticulously crafted a screenplay that aims to capture the essence of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s character, struggles, and unwavering commitment to justice and equality. 

Additionally, I have sought to assemble a team of passionate individuals who share a common vision for this project. Together, we have crafted a visually stunning and emotionally evocative experience that aims to transport audiences into the heart of Dr. King’s world. Our use of Character Creator AI technology and 3D animation serves as a powerful tool to bridge the gap between the past and the present, enabling viewers to engage with Dr. King’s message in a deeply personal and meaningful way as we endeavor to create a film that not only educates and entertains but also instills a deep sense of connection with Dr. King’s profound teachings. 

Throughout my career, I have been driven by a passion for social progress and a dedication to serving others. As a member of various task forces, including the President and First Lady’s Task Force on “Raising Responsible and Resourceful Teenagers” and President Clinton’s “Mississippi Delta Task Force,” I have sought to make a tangible difference in the lives of individuals and communities. 

“Interview With A King” is an extension of that commitment. It serves as a reminder of the power of individual voices to shape history and as an invitation for viewers to actively participate in the ongoing struggle for justice and equality. Through the medium of historical animation, we aim to inspire individuals to reflect on Dr. King’s teachings and to ignite meaningful discussions on the pressing social issues of our time. By blending historical accuracy, AI animation, and thought-provoking storytelling, we strive to create a deeply moving and transformative experience for viewers.  

“Interview With A King” is not just a film; it is a testament to the enduring impact of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy and a call to action for individuals to actively engage with his teachings. It is my hope that “Interview With A King” will serve as a catalyst for change, inspiring individuals to challenge the status quo and work towards a more inclusive and equitable society. I am immensely proud to be at the helm of this endeavor and look forward to sharing this powerful film with audiences around the world. 

I am grateful for the opportunity to bring Dr. King’s story to a new generation. Through the marriage of technology and storytelling, “Interview With A King” aims to inspire and empower individuals to carry forward Dr. King’s vision of equality, justice, and love. 

As we embark on this journey, I invite audiences to join us in celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Through this film, we hope to ignite a renewed commitment to his teachings and to foster a world where everyone is treated with dignity, respect, and compassion.
