Rocket to Danger        24min

Doris Dulwight is about to endure one of the most
unpleasant rites for anyone in their early twenties…losing
her childhood best friend. But for Doris, the situation is
particularly devastating because her best friend, Stacey
King, also happens to be the other half of Rocket to Danger,
the hip-hop roller skating team Doris’ life has revolved
around for the past eleven years. When Stacey gets a new
girlfriend, a new job and for all intents and purposes, a new
life, Doris tries everything in her power to keep things the
same as they have been. Despite her best efforts, Stacey is
more distant than ever, so in a desperate attempt to prove
she does not need him, she does the unthinkable—holds an
audition to replace his spot on the team. However, in trying
to replace Stacey, she finds herself, and in finding herself,
she finally accepts Stacey for the man he is becoming rather
than the boy she wants him to be.

GO FOR IT!        88min

"GO FOR IT!" is an inspirational dance drama about a 19 yr.
old woman named Carmen who is trying to find her identity
living in the inner-city of Chicago.  

Her immigrant Mexican, working-class parents want her to
stay in school and get an education, so she attends junior
college while working at a grocery store.  But she has a
rebellious streak to dance and compete with her friends from
the hood at the local dance club.  Carmen's professor
catches her performing one day in the neighborhood and
challenges her to audition to a formal dance school in
California.  Her boyfriend Jared wants her to make a
commitment to move in with him.  Pulled apart in every
direction including her chaotic family life, and her best
friend's abusive relationship, Carmen's dream to dance
dies.  

Can Carmen overcome her obstacles and take the biggest
chance of her life and audition, or will she lose herself to the
dead-end streets of the inner-city?   

Based on her experiences as a street dancer growing up in
Chicago, the filmmaker created GO FOR IT! with the hopes
to inspire women and urban youth to make a difference in
their own lives and follow their dreams.
