Director and actor, Brian Hooks just wrapped up production on his latest independent film, ADAM + EVE (shot almost entirely during the pandemic last year) while bridging the gap between the film-TV industry and at-risk, underserved youth in an effort to break the violent gang cycle they face and help them hone in on their creative talent (whether music or film) through his organization, Left of Bang Entertainment.
Hooks reached out to some of Hollywood’s top celebrities to join the movement and help engage youth. Celebrities such as Anthony Anderson, E-40, Craig Robinson, Tabitha Brown and more took part in the virtual film school to help mentor youth and engage them in the film and music world, letting them know they too can achieve anything.
We got a chance to speak to Brian about his ‘Left Of Bang Entertainment helping the youth, goals for 2021, his favorite hip-hop artist + much more. Get into the interview below.
