We did a bunch of pictures for Damion Lee today, and I got them finished this evening. It was a really fun time and we discussed working on Mozart of Rap, and where the film is headed. Damion Lee is currently trying to get a role in a feature film coming out soon and wanted some great pictures to go along with it, so we shot these. Let me know what you think!
Damion Omar Lee born and raised in Brooklyn N.Y., and possesses the same raw, intense, resourcefulness onscreen as did the streets he grew up on. Approached by a talent agent on a New York City subway train, this opportunity landed Damion a supporting role in the 2001 feature film “Finding Forrester” starring Sean Connery and Rob Brown. With his interest in other endeavors, Damion realized in 2005 that acting was his calling; and with no formal training until recently, Lee seems to be blessed with an authenticity on film that cannot be taught, as he has managed to star in several independent films including Blueprint, where he portrays a young college student who attempts a romantic getaway outside of the city with a male love interest. The critically acclaimed ‘Blueprint’ has been screened at festivals all over the world. It’s this same fearless approach to take on any character which has gotten Damion the lead in other indie shorts and features coming out soon including ‘44’ which can be seen at the Urban World Film Festival in NYC mid-September; ‘When It Rains’ which already received rave reviews at the New York Int’l Latino Film Festival, and the highly anticipated feature film ‘True Story’ directed by Rasheed Wilds of Wildsoul Cinema which is figured to be a classic. When Damion is not acting, he spends his down time writing poetry and collaborating with a collective of other artists who have dubbed themselves as C.R.E.A.M (Creative Revolutionary Exceptional Artist Movement). Damion Omar Lee is definitely a force to be reckoned with and someone to watch for in the near future.
