Director Statement

My name is Laron Chapman. I am an openly gay, African-American independent filmmaker based in the state of Oklahoma. I am a passionate storyteller with a vested interest in social issues, particularly those related to ethnic, gender, and sexual orientation. One of the core components of my filmmaking journey is to bring about awareness and visibility to people, communities, and causes rarely depicted on screen. Representation matters. I hope to be a small part of making the film industry a more diverse, inclusive, and dynamic creative field. I believe film is a powerful medium for propelling that change and I believe my work will be a catalyst for that process.
