Breakout Actress, Patience Adia’s…Timing is PERFECT!

27 Mar

Patience Adia Rozier is a budding American entertainer with emphasis in Acting in TV/Film and Theater. Being born and raised in metro Atlanta, GA. it would be a mere assumption that talent grows on trees, however Patience learned that she had a Special gift, 5 years ago. Her gift to interpret feelings and emotions on cue is what set her apart from other young artists. Where many would spend years of training, Patience would naturally evoke. In addition to acting, she had an ear for music and would often mimic notable legends, soulfully belting songs from Broadway to Pop.

 

PATIENCE was DESTINED for GREATNESS

53545853_10215954112858587_5090383101641621504_o

 

Patience’s name is symbolic for the sacrifice (to abstain) her parents made to each other, before they were wed. And Adia, means Gift from God. Since the very beginning, they knew Patience had divine purpose and was sure to labor, tirelessly in their assignment as her parents!

They exposed her at an early age to Fine Arts. Their passion inevitably rubbed off on her. Patience began dancing at 3 years old, in Modern and in Tap. She is an avid reader who also plays the ukulele and keyboard in her spare time. She attended several shows and movies, imagining what she’d do if she were the character. Patience even had the opportunity to see musicals at Aurora Theater. She enjoys and is inspired by watching other thespians perform Live.

As Patience is currently a Sophomore in High School, that doesn’t limit her from her dreams, at all! In fact, she portrayed Charlie Bucket in the Aurora Theater’s production of Willy Wonka Jr. This served as a very instrumental experience, not only because it was her 1st Lead role in a musical, but because she was reminded to never let the color of her skin or gender keep her from going after the roles she desired!

Patience, what is your Purpose?

“My purpose is to inspire other people by SHOWING them, as an actor, or anything that you’re in pursuit of; you must step out of your comfort zone to better yourself.”

Like her name (Patience), she has exuded much patience when it comes to preparing and honing her craft. She is a student of life and is constantly embracing the next segment of her Artistry.

Patience is a proven scholar of Hott Theater for Children (Lauren Keeton). She has served as a member on the production team, (technical area) at her high school with the 39 Steps and Ensemble in James and the Giant Peach.

In addition, she gave a striking performance as Carter in the short film, Selfless: True Happiness. Other roles, Seraph (TPN) of Temporary Darkness and Umara of the Award Winning, Noise (Damn Write Originals), would be the catalyst that subsequently caused her to surge through a growing catalog.

Patience has modestly made a name for herself around the Atlanta entertainment community. She has been nominated and won Best Breakout Actress at the 2017 TPN Awards for her role as Charity in the CDs. As if that wasn’t enough to brag about! With no surprise, she also won 1st place (youth) at the REPYourAct 2018 Talent Competition.

Wisdom appears to be the guide for Patience as she meticulously makes strides towards her goals. She is very practical with alignment and timing. “Never let the internet rush you, No one is posting their failures”, says Patience as she echoes a quote from social media. This carries much weight and allows for clearer perspective.

Patience is a model of perseverance. She has completed the manuscript for her 1st teen novel, with hopes to see it on shelves in stores and other outlets, as well as beginning her 2nd.  She loves composing piano pieces. Her dreams of becoming a professional actor/entertainer in a Broadway Musical, whether the role is lead or behind the scenes, would be a major win, considering the impressions she has made with her emerging blueprint. You guessed right!

When Did You First Discover Your Passion for Directing? (Age, Era)

I began writing poems and short stories when I was about 4 or 5 years old and told my mother I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. So, storytelling has always been a part of my DNA. But it wasn’t until much later in my professional career as a newspaper reporter that I discovered directing. When I thought back on all of the notes and ideas I scribbled on napkins, paper bags on loose leaf paper, I could hear myself saying, “One day, I’m going to put this in a movie” or “One day, I’m going to put this on television”. I knew that I wanted to tell my own stories and the stories of others.

What Notable Directors/Producers Did You Look to As a Barometer or Standard? If Any. 

Wow! My list of writers, directors and producers whose work I admire is quite extensive but I grew up loving legal and crime dramas so Steven Bochco, producer of shows like L.A. Law, Hill Street Blues, and Columbo, would be the first producer that comes to mind. Later, I began to study the works of directors Spike Lee, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorcese and Ridley Scott. And now, that list includes writer/director Aaron Sorkin, Ava Duvernay and Barry Jenkins.

What Advice Can You Offer to Creatives who desire to Be (Produce or Direct)? in the Film/TV Industry, but Struggle with the Decision of Leaving Their Traditional 9 to 5?

There are three nuggets of advice I would give creatives who want to write, direct and/or produce for film or television. 1. Know what it is you want to do. 2. Study what you want to do. 3. Do what you want to do. There are not many overnight success stories, so it’s probably going to take a lot of work to get to the point you desire. But if you determine to make is happen, quitting is the only thing that can stop you. Commit to the process, overcome the hurdles that will come, and continue to work toward your goals. You probably will need to start the process while you have a 9-5 until your passion becomes your 9-5 and beyond.

Do You Anticipate Directing any TV Series to Add to Your Catalog of Films and Movies? 

I am excited about the opportunities on the horizon for myself and my company, Expected End Entertainment, to write, produce and direct my projects and the projects of other creatives. I have three films currently on the 2019 film festival circuit. We are also in post production on my second feature film, Same Spot, and have two other features scheduled for production and two television series we are pitching to networks and streaming services. The future is bright and I am excited to be creating it.

8 May

Nina J is an American Actress, native of San Jose, California, with a Passion for the Stage. Currently residing in Atlanta, GA, Nina J is rumored to have the “Green Light” to becoming a household name in TV/Film & Theater.

Nina J is extremely devoted. She was convinced that her acting abilities would yield her many fetes but her commitment to being a Mom took precedence. Leaving her daughters for someone else to raise was simply out of the question. Nina refused to pursue her Love for acting until her daughters’ begin college. She did not want to face the inevitable challenges of juggling her trusted assignment as a mother with acting. After being instrumental to her daughters’ success, Nina would explore her divine Purpose and Lane in the Acting/Film Industry.

Nina J’s natural Theatrical Range is drawn from her many life experiences. Her life changed forever with the reassurance that she is not on this journey of life alone. Nina J attributes her inspiration from her Mother. Her mother’s tenacity to Challenge Any NO was/is MIGHTY! Nina also seizes her opportunity to connect with people, books, paintings, sports and most important, The Creator.

In addition to being a Leading Thespian, Nina is a reputable Professional Certified Life Coach, Human Resources Business Partner and a Published Author. Nina J stands out! She can’t be labeled as 1 person having only 1 gift. After identifying how to balance and employ her gift, Nina would intentionally serve her colleagues (who sought their purpose) with truth, as well; she would further her training to develop deliverance on Stage and in TV/Film.

Nina J became a student of the Arts. She trained under notable Acting Coaches; Robert Conner, Dwayne Boyd, Donald Grey, Tommy Ford, Tasha Smith and Jemal McNeil. Studying various techniques from acting classes and workshops has allowed her to be cast in roles portraying young and older characters. In fact, she received accolades for her portrayal as a Teenage girl, raped by her mother’s friend.

10629265_4790617018880_485806533346043275_o

Nina J’s catalogs for Serving the Stage would include, ‘Saints on Trial,’ Samson’s Way, (Award Winning for the Best Play at the Atlanta Black Theater Festival) Life as a Teenager, and The Best Lesson. Her ability to captivate the audience was staggering!

1487667_3768573548432_1998101397_o

Not only has Nina J invested in her acting career through Theater, Acting coaches, and workshops, she took a nontraditional route by shadowing and collecting information as she served roles as a background actor on Tyler Perry’s Have and Have Nots and CW’s The Originals. Her extension of training is constant as she blends each chronicle in her formula of teachable moments. Nina J appeared in Atlanta Law and had her break out role in the Independent Film, Muse.

Nina J understood timing and was keen to ‘creating the person you want to become through the choices you make.’  She coins the concept of “Doing It My Way”, solid in her stance of never compromising!

Through out her voyage, she learned and appreciated true authenticity, rather than living life by chance. And conversing daily with the Higher Power, she seeks to remain in alignment with his Direction.

Nina J keeps in Rotation a Few Favorite Quotes as Reminders:

1545744_3915655105379_774673061_n

“Don’t let someone who gave up on their dreams talk you out of yours, Never downplay someone else’s accomplishments by justifying that behavior with your opinion, and Outcomes are not promised- Don’t make a choice based on the outcome in order to get what you want to receive”. Nina J epitomizes Peace, Passion, and Purpose as she embodies her roles and executes her next Levels. Her Aspirations as an Actress are to Continue bringing Life to Stories and Stories to Life!

Raising the Standard to the Unsung Truth ……….Omegia Keeys

22 Feb

18238523_10211459720142330_5534644034860001756_oOmegia Meme Keeys, native of Michigan City, Indiana, is an American Writer, Director, Producer and Author who exudes much Strength and Intentionality. Above all, Omegia is a Matriarch of Truth and Change. She boldly tackles contention and uncomfortability as a challenge, but more-so to dig and create worlds that wouldn’t normally be told from a person of color’s perspective and therefore holds the Banner of a Content Creator!

Omegia’s Purpose is to Inspire others!

Reflecting back to the late 70s and early 80s’, Omegia was very animated. Before the age of 10, she would create New worlds with her Star Wars action figures and when people would visit, Omegia would hand them an entire script to Act out the roles. Although, Omegia never conceived the height of her imagination (to her, she was just having FUN); this would be the start of her Dynasty as a Filmmaker!

Omegia attributes her tireless activism for making a difference in her work and personal journey to her Mother, JoAnn Johnson. JoAnn is her biggest supporter and Inspiration. She is an Activist who lived through the Jim Crow and Civil Rights era. Omegia was fortunate to learn of her mother’s march for voting, women’s rights, and other injustices with American political leader, Fannie Lou Hamer. The wisdom Joann portrayed caused a Great combustion with Omegia! Her need to be the Voice for so many Unsung Truths grew immensely!

In addition, JoAnn is also a well known Farmer in her home town, growing healthy produce and feeding the less fortunate. JoAnn has always pushed Omegia to strive for Excellence and taught her to Never take No for an Answer. She took grave responsibility in teaching Omegia HER history as well as serving others. As Omegia would explore new ventures (even during adolescent years) she would recall her mother’s words, “a NO means work around it- Until you get a YES.”

22829827_10212997803953464_2855971015254958042_o

Truth is, Omegia didn’t have the luxury of being Mediocre. Her mother had already set an Incredible Standard! And having such a rich foundation, it was inevitable that Omegia would relentlessly pursue each goal!

By No means, aborting her (then) hobby to create world’s with her script-writing, Omegia would discover another passion, Running! With her blended natural ability to compete, her discipline, and visions that she too could one day be an Olympic runner, Omegia would go on to lead competitions throughout cities around the world. She never allowed her status of being a minority in this sport to overshadow her way of thinking. Omegia ran track from the 7th grade through college. She kept in mind affirmations her mother spoke into her, (to Never give up-even when she felt defeated) and other African American women who Dominated in track.

I met many celebrity runners, one in particular, Jackie Joyner Kersey- who I observed had asthma, but proved to be very successful. It definitely boosted my confidence because I, too, coped with asthma. In conjunction to Jackie Joyner Kersey and my Mother being an inspiration, I undoubtfully admired my sister, Teresa Brown. She was a Beast. She is 7 years older. I would go to her track meets and run along side her. I wanted to be as good as Teresa. I cried when I broke her 1st record. Periodically, I would even slow down to not surpass her time. She would go on to give her blessing for me to UNLEASH the Fire!”

27336396_10213794028178572_410458307159557425_n

Omegia was indeed a Fire Runner! She would brave the most difficult tasks knowing she did her absolute best! Omegia exceeded her own expectations, going on to Win Awards: 9 Time Missouri Valley Conference Championship, Pan Am Games Bronze (Argentina), All American and State Championships and more.

As if her plate wasn’t plentiful, in the interim of her triumph of competing, Omegia also managed to be Extraordinary in her Academics! She graduated with honors from Indiana State University with a BS in Criminology and Minor in English Literature.

As philanthropy was rooted in her at an early age, Omegia joined Sigma Gamma Rho Fall of 1995. She would embark a new Sister hood. Driven as Omegia was with each task that was presented, she was equally dedicated to serving her community. The harmonious connection with her sorors would Only help to further her cause in actively serving and being assertive for the Unsung Truth!

13782087_10208848721709001_8972487896208416041_n (1)

Being instrumental in the Community was just a portion of how she displayed her kindness. Omegia felt she had a greater assignment. After college, following her Father, GM Keeys‘ footsteps, she enlisted in the Military; with a total of 16 years to date. She served her 1st six years in the Air force as an Intelligence Analyst and the remainder in the Army as Human Resources/Personnel. She also worked at MEPs (Military Entrance Processes Station), as a Recruiter. 2 out of the 16 years, Omegia was IRR (Inactive Ready Reserve). She is Audacious and extremely cultured. While serving, Omegia saw and experienced many parts of the world. Unbeknownst to Omegia, her record of events would be the catalyst to the Heroic woman she is today!

The military allowed me to have unfathomable laser point focus. I can do many things in a short amount of time!”, says Omegia.

13346193_10208445556750129_7974979798756614862_o

Intentionally keeping a journal (to clear her mind and help her stay focused) while being in the Military, Omegia would eventually establish and publish her catalog: (2006) Passionate Playmates, (2007) Seduction.com, and (2008) Can You Keep a Secret. Having received raving reviews from returned and new fans, Omegia would be encouraged to continue writing novels. Omegia was/is a gifted Author who possess power and the ability to deliver conviction! The demand for Omegia, the Author, had grown astronomical! Writing was an addiction. In a short period of time she he had written over 30 books! Being well received by her peers in notable Writing Guilds as well as her fans, Omegia would win awards for Readers Favorite and Conversation Top 25, National Black Books, Best Seller in 6 Titles and many others.

Omegia was unmatched in her tenacity and had an unquestionable amount of belief that she could master anything she put her mind to! Shifting from full time service in the Military to now being a best selling Author, Omegia would relocate to Atlanta, Georgia to pursue her life long passion of being a Content Creator. Shortly after becoming a resident, a friend who also served in the Military took interest in Omegia’s writing style, becoming a starved fan. He would make it his mission to harass her with encouragement! He spoke candidly when holding her accountable of her irrefutable talents. He would urge her to bring her novels to TV/Film. Omegia later discovered her military friend had an ulterior motive, he was an Actor. It wasn’t a bad thing, though; Omegia heeded his words and in 2012 she wrote her novel, Domestic Seduction. After writing Domestic Seduction, it evolved into a script. The “Floodgates” would then open and be the invitation for Omegia to Reintroduce herself, as Omegia, the Filmmaker!

In 2014 Birth of ABOUT FACE MEDIA

About Face is a Military term and My life is Exactly that. I’m making an About Face into my Greatness!”

Omegia had grown a sense of admiration for other notable black filmmakers. She would be notorious for taking notes every chance she got. Omegia was self taught. Her methods for learning were sometimes unorthodox but extremely effective. Omegia became a student of the Art. She had a PHD in “Google-ology”, never shy or afraid of watching tutorials. Relative to producing films, a compilation of her mother’s early teachings and other life experiences would ultimately set the tone for Omegia- in how she would establish and build rapport with other Industry Professionals.

In 2014 Omegia launched About Face Media. It would be the central hub to house her many projects. Being authentic and true to her goals as a filmmaker, Omegia would work many Productions (behind the scenes) as a way to fund her projects as well as learn from other Directors and Producers. She had a habit of keeping “the Notebook” while working as Stand-In. Omegia is a proven team player, but when on set- she is all about getting the work done! If there was ever pause in her job- she would focus on “the Notebook”. Oddly, people would gravitate towards her. The Notebook had a life of its own, causing “Heavy Hitters” of the Entertainment Industry to take notice and become a fan! Omegia recalls having worked on set of Nashville. Actor, Director Mario Van Peebles was magnetized by her writing style. He too had his own Notebook. It was of no surprise that he would give her the “nod” of salutation. He was one of the many well-known Filmmakers who took interest.

And Then IT happened…………

I had the opportunity to work on The Originals. We were filming at a Very Creepy House. While Most Folks Sat Inside to Stay Warm, I Opted for the Light, Outside. Director, Rob Hardy walked by me a few times. My Notebook caught his eye! He grabbed it from me, Man was I Nervous! I had No idea what he would do with it. Even when I was called into set, he didn’t say a Word. At the end of the night he returned my notebook with notes. One that read, “Never Give Up and I Better Not Sell This One.” That Very moment let me know that I am really meant to do this.!

18766460_10211732955653047_1083228710567394647_o

In addition to working on the Originals for 3 consecutive seasons, Omegia served Production for The House with a Clock in its Walls, Hunger Games, Marvel’s Black Panther, Hidden Figure and countless others. While working, she also wrote and produced Donors (derived from her previous novels). Omegia is definitely well known in the Atlanta acting Circuit for creating Worlds of Opportunity for Many actors. Her recent Premiere of Domestic Seduction is rumored to have reached massive audiences! This would generate sales as well as provoke fans of Amazon to become instant supporters. Omegia has since written The Brown Girls Guide to Good Credit. She has also Written and Directed From Jim to James Crow, a Social Documentary, projected to be one of the most controversial projects she has ever Created.

28056361_1799389713522317_3260010603502797591_n

Omegia is also in Pre-production of her films, Shattered, The Lure and respectively looks forward to cultivating precision with (earlier scripts) Donor Series, and Delta Dogs, near August.

As fruitful as Omegia’s resume is, she continues to strive for excellence! Omegia plans to leave a legacy-her family would be proud of. She maintains her integrity in any manner of service she provides; whether its philanthropy, empowerment or film making. She understands the level of responsibility with the baton she carries. Her goals are to continue Creating content without permissions for African American voices to be heard (by any means necessary)! She also believes and is a reflection of “When people show you who they are, believe them.” -Oprah Winfrey. Omegia is relentless in carrying out Each task until completion!
