I Wanna Introduce You To A Very Special Lady

I want you to meet Tina.

For the last few years I have been looking for talented writers and directors who I could help reach their dreams. Those who have the gift but haven't had the opportunity. Those who are gifted at storytelling. Well, in my search of many I have found a few that I'm working on helping, but there was one that is so special and so unique that she is ready now.  Her name is Tina Gordon Chism. She is a writer and a first-time director. She has a new movie coming out on May 10th that I'm presenting called PEEPLES. This movie is hysterical. She did such a great job. I'm so proud of her.

I must tell you, it makes me feel great to be able to help usher her to her dreams. I love seeing the underdog get their shot. If y'all didn't put me in this position I couldn't help her. So thank you. I feel that there is much more room in this business and this is my first attempt at opening this door for another writer-director. I'm excited about the possibility and I'm excited about her… a young African-American woman getting her first shot. This is really cool.

I want you to go out and support her movie, PEEPLES. It is so funny. Craig Robinson and Kerry Washington lead an all-star cast in this comedy and they will truly have you laughing out loud. I'm very proud of this movie and I'm very proud of Tina. I'm telling you, you won't be disappointed. The movie is great and Tina is very special. Let's show her some love, OK?

I'll be talking to you about it as we get a little closer.

PEEPLES in theaters May 10th. GO TINA!!!!

    God Bless you Mr Perry for sowing a seed of Faith,Confidence and Faith in Ms Tina Gordon Chism as she deputes a First time writer and Director. Mr Perry the Seed you have sowed in Ms Tina will reap bountiful Blessings,full and overflowing for you in Jesus Name. Amen! 2 Corinthians 9:6 says whoever sows generously will reap generously. God bless you for being such a Rare Gem. Most Directors would have been scared giving Ms Tina the support you are giving her as they would have seen her as a Competition and rival in the Business.

      I saw the movie previews of "Peeples" when I went to see 'Temptation" David Alan Grier is hilarious so I knew that this was going to be funny (O-o) Ok talk to you later :-) Ms. Proverbs

    WOW, I don't know what to say about this one. Usually your messages pick me up, and give me the strength to keep going, to put one feet in front of the other, but today, lets just say the Devil really knows how to slap you when your down. You know how you guys land those perfect slaps in the movies, that catch you blind sided. Congratulations, I'm very happy for Tina. I saw the Trailer for Peeples, and it looks hilarious, so I'm sure with you backing her the movie will do well, and she will be very successful. I'm so elated to see that you are seeking out new talent, and expanding your opportunities to people who deserve one. You know, yesterday, I missed what may have been an important conference call because my phone got disconnected earlier that morning. I knew it was just the Devil blocking another circuit that God was trying to connect. Now today, I get this message from you, and again I am elated for Tina, but I feel like the Devil is winning this battle. I can hear him in my head asking, "Where is your God now, when everything is falling apart? I have been writing to you for over a year, suggesting this exact thing. I even took a huge "Leap of Faith" and emailed some written ideas to you. Now I don't know if you ever received them, so I'm not accusing you, but this was my hope, my "Dream" come true to write for you, and to play a role in the work that I wrote & co-produced. So today the Devil wins, he spit in my face, but that's alright, for as Ms. Scarlet said, "Tomorrow is another day." I hope this is God at work, and that I will be your next new discovery.
