The I Am a God project is part of a journey of my own self discovery. I've carried this film with me since the summer of 2012 without a single shot filmed. It was all in my mind until I started to write the feature length story later that year. Even with the feature length written I knew it wasn't ready because I wasn't ready. I was in a whirlwind of spiritual and intellectual growth at the time. I had a lot stacked against me, I just graduated film school, I owed thousands of dollars in debt, my mother was terminally ill, and I had no secure work. And let me not forget to mention, I'm Black in America. All I felt I could do was look within and around me to find answers. I Am a God was one of those answers because the story was inherent and a creative outlet for me to express my inner feelings. The story told of my experience and studies toward self enlightenment in a way. Prior to 2012, I was in college and I had dived into African studies along side my film courses. This experience was invaluable as it opened up new and profound stories to tell. I was elated to feel that I could really tell stories that spoke to me and my cultural identity. This cultural identity is two fold as I am Haitian-American and of African descent. However there was still doubt as to who'd really be consuming these type of niche locked films. Most movie goers are fixated on Hollywood style fare and I was more interested in telling art-house style narratives. In addition to that I wanted to tell these stories with people of color as leads. I knew that it'd be hard to crack people's misconceptions and misunderstandings of the "black experience" but I also knew that it is a human experience. So I Am a God was born and grew out of the culmination of a personal and observed story. All the while, I had to eat so I started freelancing full-time picking up work as a filmmaker where I could. The I Am a God project had to be put in the background for a period of almost 5 years. In those few years, my mother passed away, I moved to Oakland, California, a close collaborator tragically died, and I was working full-time mostly as a documentary producer. After rising through the local ranks as a professional filmmaker, I finally felt it was time to tell the I Am a God story, at least in part. Hence I Am a God was excerpted, adjusted, and retold in short form as I Am a God: Prologue. It is a film that is destined to be expounded upon with a feature length version and more. I hope with the prologue people can begin to see a new yet old narrative told through a colored lens and still appreciate it's humanity.
