Check out our interview with talented director and actor Brian Hooks who’s all his passion projects are done through his organization, Left of Bang Entertainment (LOBE). The mission of LOBE is to bridge the gap between the film-TV industry and at-risk youth in an effort to break the violent gang cycle inner-city youth face. Hitting on the importance of diversity from the ground floor, this program aims to create a more diverse and inclusive industry that brings new points of view into the mix. The organization has launched a virtual film school this month, where students are learning the basics of filmmaking, producing, and more from veterans in the industry. In addition to LOBE, Brian is wrapping production on his latest independent film, ADAM + EVE (shot almost entirely during the pandemic last year).
