An idea worth spreading

Mohawk Salon: A Psycho Thriller (2014)
Crime | Mystery | Thriller

BUDGET $2MM (estimated) SUMMARY - It's up to Chicago detective Sam Mitchell to solve the ongoing serial murders of dozens of Afro-American hairdressers, whose scalped remains are being hung like trophies to their salon mirrors. As a rookie in the late 1970s, Sam covered a grisly crime scene in Harlem, where a Native American woman was murdered and scalped, her baby missing. That case was never solved. Is the troubled Black cop up to the task of restoring order to the city?

Need an Investor for Mohawk Salon...a psycho thriller. Some sounds will haunt you forever!

We have 5 celebrities (Danny Trejo of MACHETE KILL, Dave Vescio, LOST SOULS, Vivica A. Fox of KILL BILL, Lil' Kim of SOUNDTRACK MOULIN ROUGE, Gary Dourdan of CSI LAS VEGAS and Shekinah Anderson of T.I. TINY & FAMILY HUSTLE) with this $2.1M budget film project, Mohawk Salon...a psycho thriller.

I'm passionate about

My writing...Imagine being told at the tender age of seven, “you will never be a writer”, chuckled Mrs. Lippmann as she walked away shaking her head. Yes, that was the 60s… The sad part…I believed her

Talk to me about

How you can support Mohawk Salon...a psycho thriller and get it on 2000+ screens in the United States and Worldwide.

My TED story

As one of the 99% "Mohawk Salon" can do its part by putting people back to work. There are a lot of actors, above the line professionals and below the line professionals that need to jumpstart their lives again. There are graduates who are looking to get their foot in the door and there are those that are in the door but lost hope. The impact of this campaign will give those individuals hope and believe “Yes I Can”… What we need to get "Mohawk Salon" on 2000+ screens is an estimated 2.1 million according to Cheetah Budget, however we are only requesting ½ a million as we will seek professional skilled volunteer support to offset the balance. We will change location, perhaps from New York to Los Angeles or have the film shot with less venues. We will have actors play more than 2 roles and be part of the “crowds” and scout for brand sponsorship. Your support is needed…as Steve Jobs once said "You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward

Do you believe in something you can't see?
In order to "make it" in this society, we have to believe in ourselves and others. I believe that others will make my contribution a success, though I know I have not received any. If I was not to believe that others would do the right thing...why bother? Veronica Page

Should everyone of us fear the moment when he achieves his biggest dream ? How will his life be after achieving the ultimate dream?
Great question! And I've thought about this many times, especially when I see "from rags to riches" individuals. If I was to achieve my dream www.Indiegogo.com/Split-Endsa-psycho-thriller I would fulfill a promise I made when I was in my early twenties...help skid row. Back then, I never seen so many men on skid row...then I thought about the many children who were fatherless...is this where their dads are? I was walking from Chinatown in New York City during the day and ran into this section, my heart melt, whereas I should have been afraid, but felt the hurt, the pain and the embarrassment these men must have gone through to find themselves on skid row. Yes, my life would change, I would be more encourage to "give back" and "support others" to achieve their dreams.
