Odom-Booker Entertainment co-produced the feature film “10 Commandments of Chloe” along with One Way or Another Productions. I was also the Cinematographer for the movie and the Editor for the Trailer. Jason Burkey, who portrayed “Sam” in “23rd Psalm: Redemption”, was the male lead.
I shot and edited this teaser trailer for “A Will To Win,” which is about the history of athletics and academics at Tennessee State University (TSU). It is a Co-Production between Shereitte C. Stokes, III and One Way Or Another Productions, LLC. Princeton Holt, whom I worked with on “10 Commandments of Chloe” is the director. I am attached as the Cinematographer for the documentary feature.

“Princeton Holt’s The 10 Commandments of Chloe plays out almost like a dream. Musician Chloe (Naama Kates) arrives in Nashville and begins the arduous task of finding a venue willing to give her a spot to perform. Along the way she meets Brandon (Jason Burkey), and the two strike up a friendship that may or may not be something more.
And, roughly, that’s the film. There’s a real naturalistic vibe to the camerawork, that floating style where we feel less like we’re watching a movie and more like we’re just omnisciently following the lives of our characters. What happens in the film isn’t overly dramatic, no huge tragedies befall Chloe or Brandon, the film just navigates their experience.
Which is a vibe that isn’t for everyone. I could see someone seeing this and thinking it’s a film where nothing happens. Well, things happen, and there is a progression made from opening to closing, but it’s more true to the way life works. Which is, we might have small evolutions, or small successes and failures, but it’s not always a resounding arc of character growth where Event A sets off Event and Catharsis B.”
