Teen Mother, Once Homeless Finds Solace One Film At A Time.
(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 30, 2012 ) Jacksonville, FL -- An African-American female only 26 years old found her self in the middle of the winter 5 years ago with only the clothes she could fit in one suitcase at a shelter.
Joining the military at the tender age of 17 she thought even though she had a child at 15 years old she would still make a life for herself and her daughter. Serving 4 years in the military she decided to get out, but when a longterm relationship ended she was struggling with an addiction to prescription drugs and was on the street watching everything she ever owned taken away.
At the age of 22, back home in Jacksonville, F.L. on her mothers couch Gin X decided there has to be a better way, and asked her higher being what should she be doing.
"It was like a dream" Gin X says "all of sudden I wanted to write and everything I wrote I wanted to see. Going to the library and reading everything there was on films, television, and what went on to make them. This southern native decided I want to make a film" and that she did.
She saved up her money working at night ,studied and took courses. In 2008 she incorporated MD&S Entertainment a production company and Gin X made an independent film titled Queen Pin in which she got distribution and a lot of love from her peers.
After that is when she realized her love for film and that writing brought her solace, so she had to pursue this passion. This year she made another film titled Before My Eyes, but this time she decided to distribute it her self and keep it cost effective for her audience, by selling it for only a mere $2.99.
Gin X says, I reflected back on things I could have done different with my first film. I began to study the business side of things. What I realized was I had the creativity but not the financial intelligence as of yet. I read more on businesses and creating wealth and once again like a dream it just came to me.
This is the generation of the web so this creative genius has decided to take advantage and digitally self-distribute her film and so you wont have to go to the bootleg man shes only charging $2.99 on the website http://www.mdsent.com.
