Hi there! I am Manish and I am a recent graduate from FZD School of design in Singapore with primary focus on Concept Design and also a dancer.
I am originally from Nepal, India who moved to the States in 2004.
Along with the school I have also completed many lectures and courses revolving around the skills required to bring forth the vision of any given project in any given genre.
I initially contacted Brian who told me about the event and it immediately sparked a flame of excitement into my spirit and I immediately contact The Atlanta Creators to offer my services as a volunteer.
I am truly elated to be part of B.R.E Productions International, Inc and The Atlanta Creators because I feel that this will provide me with the perfect chance to grow my networking base, improve my skills and be an asset to Audrey and Brian - now and for the future!
My name is Verlenzo Hawk and I was born & raised in Newport News, Virginia.
I have been attending Clayton State University
where I am pursuing a career in the film industry.
My main focuses and passions are:
writing, acting, & directing.
I'm also an editor and can fill various crew positions ranging from: AD, sound, to gaffer.
I met Audrey and Brian at the Clayton State University Careers Event and was very excited about learning more about what they did and becoming involved with B.R.E Productions International and, especially volunteering my services at The Atlanta Creators Conference in February 2020.
As I love being creative & collaborating with fun, harding working people I know that this will be the perfect opportunity and forum for me to network and meet great people.
Husband of a beautiful wife, father of 1, Airforce veteran of 8yrs. Moved to Warner Robins area from Arizona, my last station in the end of 2018.
My ambition here in the Ga area has been to focus on being a part of the film industry as a career actor and possibly a model.
I understand knowledge and growth of the industry from lingo to the different types of equipment used to set scene all go hand and hand with success in general in this industry. I have little experience as an Actor.
Some online schooling for Film & media studies through Arizona State Univ. and some acting workshop courses taken through The Acting Club of Atlanta ( T. A. C. A.). Both were great and fun opportunities to have been apart of.
In 2020, I'm searching for more than just knowledge on the industry, I am looking for some way to apply it, a niche, and connection to those with like minds. The opportunities do not have to be immaculate in scale, but I know it starts with me putting myself out there, getting to know people, the area, and just pushing myself in the direction I say I would like to go.
I really love and I am excited by all aspects of film making. I am just looking to learn and be a stronger part of the film making atmosphere where I eventually want to make a career working with those of like inspirations.
Thank you for allowing me to be apart of this great experience.
