Director Statement

Officer Lincoln Holly was a remarkable project to work on. With a concept so powerful and so controversial, it was an honor directing the film and working with a professional cast and crew.

Statement from the Producers

A couple of years ago a wife wrote a short to showcase the talents of her husband and that of his network of gifted actors. Today that short has turned into a movement of great proportions. Officer Lincoln Holly is a story about mistakes, morals and values. It's a story about accountability, acceptance and forgiveness. And it is also a story put forth to educate the country to the policies, or lack there of, when pertaining to the use of excessive lethal force by law enforcement. It is our hope to use this project as a way to implement new policies that protect American citizens and their children for years to come from being a victim of excessive police brutality or lethal force. We are very proud of what we've all accomplished with this project and are looking forward to sharing it with the world.
