“Daveon and Makayla” director Lawyer Henderson using ‘Oscar Micheaux’s’ techniques to produced his films

Atlanta, Ga - As Lawyer Henderson focuses on wrapping up his film, “Daveon and Makayla” in June, he reveals that he reveres the late great black filmmaker and pioneer Oscar Micheaux, the black filmmaker and pioneer who produced 44 films on a shoe string budget.

“Just to learn about him and his story in Hollywood was fascinated, “Saids Henderson. “Who was never taught about Micheaux in film school.

Micheaux faced many challenges before producing his first film, the Homesteader in 1919 but would achieve his goal as a film producer by being a homesteader and train porter. He also wrote a book entitled, “The Homesteader before producing the film.

“Daveon and Makayla “is the same as “The Homesteader”. A book turned into novel is all to common in Hollywood. We have all witness it if we are movie-goers and movie fans. An author of A New York times best-selling author gets a movie version to his or her book.  

Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of he rings” or the “Girl with the dragon tattoo“ are the most common ones we hear about so often according to online Hollywood magazine “Vanity fair!”

“Daveon and Makayla” is an urban love tale about Makayla Mcjames who uses the hotel she manages to do escorting. A noisy co-worker finds out and begins to black mail her and she turns to her new boyfriend Daveon Taylor for help.

After schedule conflict with the old cast, again, Henderson turns back to the” Micheaux model” of planning, budgeting, and execution naming new comers Dannie Kristen (Williams) and Kenneth Bynum as lead characters to finish the project.

“... With both Kenny and Dannie, where confident that we could wrap up production within a reasonable time considering the circumstances. The momentum is there and so is the level of due diligence”. Says co-executive producer Ail Jones, who works with Henderson.

“Despite being on a shoe-string budget, this new strategy gives even more hope and confident toward our success”. Jones added.

‘Daveon and Makayla’ is expected to wrap up in June followed by a release on Peak cock, Netflix and Tubi among other digital platforms.
