About

Tequan Richmond - Role As Abner
Tequan Richmond - Role As Abner

 Right Now we have decided to make Tequan Richmond (Who we all know as Drew from Everybody Hates Chris to play the role as Abner) 

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT

The Black Child is a 12 book series. Yes, you are correct there will be a total of 12 films or more. 

The book/film is about a family of slaves from the year 1926 escapes from their plantation. Chased down by white riflemen they hide in a cabin. Torched the cabin went when the white riflemen threw the torched flames into it. The family hid in the closet. Afraid they were until they jumped into the year of 2018. 

There was a reason why they jumped into the year of 2018, A particular boy by the name of Abner bares a total of 12 gifts. In each book, those gifts are revealed. Even though he is the one that holds the gifts. His family has abilities that were given to them to protect Abner. 

Think of this as 12 years of slave + Narnia +Skyrim +Back to the Future

QUESTION 1

OUT OF ALL THE KICKSTARTER PROJECTS! WHY SHOULD I BACK YOURS?

Well, that's a great question! Throughtout my life I always had a great passion for film. I sleep, eat and dream film. It's my life! I believe that this film will be successful with your help. All through my life as a kid, people told me that i wasnt going to be successful. Even my teacher at the age of 10 she grabbed a redmarker put the letter L on my forehead and called me a loser and told everyone in my class that i was going to be unsuccessful. I cried and the same day i wanted to comit suicide. The television was unplugged and it came on by itself. The movie that was playing was by steven speilberg which is my idol. Jaws that inspired me to make films. My heart is in this and I pray every asking for my dream to go true. I stay up 24 hours a day doing all i can to make this happen. I love kickstarter because of this platform people like me can become sucessful. So, I ask that you please give this project a chance.

Risks and challenges

There are many challenges when making a film, but the creativity that is within my team and I have always overcame them
