John David Washington, son of Denzel Washington, sounds exactly like his father. Well, not *exactly* but listen to him talk with your eyes closed and your ears might perk up as mine did when I overheard an ad for Blackkklansman on YouTube.
It’s interesting to me because Denzel has such a distinct voice — can you name one similar? — that when I heard his son I did a double take of the TV.
Do we inherit our voices? I don’t sound like my mom, but I definitely share vocal qualities with my sisters; we’re often confused for one or the other. I did a quick Google search with no conclusive answer as of yet, but it’s something I want to learn more about. Can you provide any insight?
In the meantime, check out this video of John David talking to Jimmy Kimmel and let me know your thoughts!
Caught the matinee showing of Aquaman today and to my surprise it was a very, very entertaining movie. I wasn’t thrilled by the trailer and didn’t know enough about the character to see it for the comic’s sake, but after a few good reviews and a free ticket (thanks, David <3), I was well on my way to the sunken city of Atlantis.

The third installation in my film journey, inspired by a dream that stirred me in the middle of the night. What do you think? And if you like it, will you please share it?
Thanks for watching!
I really love this film. Though not perfect, I can see huge improvements here from my first project (Litter). It brings me great pride, inspiration and hope that this is the beginning of a very beautiful journey! ❤
Home was shot a week apart on October 14, 2018 in Central Park (NYC) and neighboring areas, and edited between Oct 22-23, 2018.
The music, “Sky Full of Song” belongs to Florence + the Machine. Please see the official music video here.
Thank you as always for reading and watching! Your support is monumental!
Hi Folks! I invite you to watch my very first film, Litter. It is a silent film that was shot on October 7, 2018 in Battery Park (NYC) and edited between October 12-16, 2018. I used a Canon EOS 5D Mark III to film and Avid Media Composer to edit. The actors are my fellow filmmaking students, Rishi (lead) and Santosh (supporting), as well as a cameo made by yours truly at the end 🙂
Please have a look and let me know your thoughts! I’m super proud of this production, even with all the glaring beginner mistakes. Stay tuned for a later post on what I learned during the filmmaking process!
And keep your eyes peeled for MORE MOVIES!
Love always, Hafeezah ❤
I have come down from my very first virtual reality experience and it was amazing! Black Public Media (BPM) held a VR mixer last Tuesday and I volunteered to assist in the screening room. We used the Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR headsets.
The Oculus, released a few months ago, is a standalone (un-tethered) headset and remote control that doesn’t require use of a connected smartphone. The VR content is downloadable directly from the headset. Current retail price is ~$200.

These past few months have been very disorganized for me. Between work, life, and all else in between, I’ve been out of balance. Some good has come in the interim, however:
APRIL: I attended a panel on “Authenticity, Sensitivity, Voice & Appropriation in Writing” hosted by the Austin Film Festival (AFF) and the Writer’s Guild of America East (WGAE). It was so enlightening! See my favorite tweet of that experience here.
