TUESDAY, 01/01/19 - 9:10 PM - After creating a webpage for "Imperfect Being," I came across a YouTube video titled "Inside Taiwan's Notorious Mafia," and decided it could possibly serve as the basis for this horror film.

A 16th-century African boy becomes possessed by a voodoo spirit, and when his Portuguese captors take him to Japan, the restless spirit grows increasingly violent and vows to kill him and everyone around him if he does not return it to the shores of Africa's Gold Coast.

OBJECTIVES:  As with all of our projects, our goal is to: 

- EDUCATE: 

- Teach history and give our audiences some background into why things are the way they are. 

- Debunk the myths, hoaxes, and "fake news."

 

- INSPIRE:  We hope to create a sense of wonder to inspire a new generation of Americans to take action and do the right things.  Because our show's supporting characters is a dreamer who aspires to greatness, our audiences can follow their respective paths.

 

- OUR ACTIONS DEFINE OUR CHARACTER:  We need to show our audiences what road one has to travel in order to achieve our lifelong dreams.  Nothing is promised or guaranteed.  Nothing is free.  One has to suffer some pain to elevate one's life to the next level.

 

- CALL TO ADVENTURE:  When we are personally challenged by an evil person or called out by evil events (criminal activity, war, etc.) occurring within our community, we need to answer, or the evil will eventually reach us after it destroys our neighbors.
