Hey Wassup although we havent me Im a friendly guy!!!!Im a filmmaker, as a job I teach people how to edit and I make promotional videos! I am always up for new projects. I organize charity events, I invite heaps of my people from my uni so its always pact.

Do you happen to know any gangs, or anyone who seems to know any in L.A. or New York, Philly, or anywhere?? I am making a documentary about gangs in the world. If your asking whats in it for them I will provide them with food, and drinks, when they or their friends come to japan I will show them the underground spots. My message is to show that gangs should not be hated, and they are good people. And for people to stop believing in the media that portrays them badly. Also if they dont want their faces to be filmed I can totally do that. Thanks so much for your help I will really appreciate any help.

I have videos of me train surfing, which is riding on top of trains, and doing crazy things yet, as you can see the further you scroll down, there are serious documentaries, films, cm's, etc. if u can even give me a small comment, or advice, on my sisters vids, and mine.

Take it ez!!!! lets have a good life, hope to c u around

this is the link i send to people. I sincerely wish you all a happy and peaceful holidays and I hope this new year brings you all that you deserve and desire.

A 34 year old who used to be a stripper, but she now is a prostitute as she gets faster money. She is facing an addiction on crack, and even smokes in a bathroom of a restaurant. She talks about how she got into drugs, her life story and how she is spending her last years trying to survive as she has AIDS. I am not finished with this piece. I am still filming her. I am going to film another subject or two a heroine addict, and I want to get into depth. Film people from different aspects, from the police to doctors to a person who used to be on drugs. I want to film people that deals with drugs.
