Introducing “Future Boy” played by the phenom talent that is Nate Shelton.
Remember that kid who had their finger on the pulse. They weren’t an early adopter. They EMBODIED THE FUTURE THAT THE early adopters would bite off. Casting that role was a beautiful challenge — and totally fullfilled by @naaaate123 ! So meet the coolest kid of 1982... w/ the HR Hudson vibes, and the “let me rock your world and blow your mind — let me show you what possibility and excitement look like.”

When you love what you do it doesn’t feel like work ~~ and working w/ the most inspiring, talented, passionate, & giving cast and crew is a BLESSING!
S/o times a thou to @naaaate123 — “Future Boy”, one of those characters that, when written, you find yourself wondering if it is possible to find such a rara avis. Well the answer is a resounding YES! Yes it’s possible and Nate, you embody FB and make him everything and more. It’s that movie magic of watching what was written and what was shot — and watching the craft of a skilled actor make it even more fully realized than your dreams. So thanks for being the cool kid. Thanks for making movie magic. Thanks for being awesome to work with and I’m looking forward...

“What better way to kick off the new month than with a new photography project! “The Beauty of the Human Creation”, focusing on the pure beauty of people- ALL COLORS, ALL SIZES, ALL HAIR TEXTURES etc. So many people struggle with self-esteem issues because they don’t meet society’s shallow standards of beauty. If God made you (and He did), you’re beautiful and you need to know it. 💐🌸❤️ Thanks to Otessa Marie Ghadar for being my first model for the project! Stay tuned! #dianaarlanaphotography #thebeautyofhumancreation
