The Pages Of My Heart: Volume One

Aaliyah Wilson is a 27-year-old talented actress and acting teacher who feels stagnant in her career and love life. After graduating from one of the best acting programs in the state, Aaliyah had high hopes for a successful career in television and film. However, she lives in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida where there are beautiful beaches but no big television and film productions. In order to
maintain her career as an actress she auditions for local commercials that don’t seem to be getting her anywhere because she’s not even booking those. Disappointed that her career
hasn’t exactly gone the way she expected, Aaliyah acquires a lackadaisical attitude that bleeds into, not only her career but her love life.
Be that as it may, Aaliyah’s love life takes a turn when she meets an attractive, aspiring journalist and poet, Aubrey Jones. After Aaliyah hesitantly agrees to go on a date with Aubrey,
she realizes she may just have a chance at love when the two hit it off. The creative duo falls
quickly and hard for each other, it appears they both have met their match. However, Aubrey and
Aaliyah’s whirlwind romance doesn’t last long. When Aaliyah discovers that Aubrey’s been
keeping something from her she regrets ever giving love a chance and decides to break it off.
As if that wasn’t enough, Aaliyah faces her biggest heartbreak yet when she suffers loss in the
most unexpected way.
Nevertheless, it is through tragedy and loss that Aaliyah finally discovers that when you really
want something you need to take risks.

Director Biography - Deon Gibson

Deon Gibson was intrigued by creative writing as a child and found himself exploring the art frequently; He was a natural. But with little to no outlets to be found, his creativity remained outwardly unexpressed for most of his youth. When he was about 23 years old he began working as a copywriter and graphic artist at a local ad agency where he was finally able to express his creativity.
After a couple of years, in 2001, he found himself and his interests growing and he began a journey in

photography. With no formal training, he was dedicated to mastering the craft and as his love for it grew, so

did his ability. This opened a number of doors for him, including the opportunity to travel on mission trips

to Haiti, Ethiopia, and Mexico as a photojournalist. The experience of these trips and the memories he

captured as a photographer broadened his sights and filled his cup of creativity and eventually led to the story

writing and filmmaking which has become his focus today.
As a Writer and Filmmaker, Deon’s goal is to create thought-provoking content.
