Director Biography - Rashawn Strife

Rashawn Strife was born and raised in Westchester County, NY. He first started acting in high school, then studied acting techniques at Westchester Community College in Valhalla, NY, and the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts (formerly the School For Film and Television) in New York City. Rashawn believed Hollywood was lacking diversity in their movies, so he founded Strife's Way Productions, Ltd. in 2006, in order to produce quality formats for stage and film where the majority of the cast are made up of minority actors and REAL martial artists. His first stage production, LYRICAL ARTS, a hip hop martial arts comedy, opened at the Producers' Club in NYC. It was also his directorial and writer debut. A year and a half later, he reopened LYRICAL ARTS at the American Theater of Actors in midtown. He also produced three video shorts called, THE MERCENARIES, uploaded on MySpace. In February 2012, Rashawn enlisted in the United States Army as an active duty 92G (Culinary Specialist). In July 2015, he transitioned from active duty to the California National Guard. He received his bachelors of science from Liberty University majoring in paralegal studies in June 2016. Rashawn hopes to one day enroll into law school to become an entertainment lawyer who produces movies on the side. His short film, "F3: Kelly Vs. Sarah", re-sparked his passion for acting, writing, and producing. Rashawn hopes to produce and act in the feature-length film, "F3: Ferocious Femme Fatale", co-starring with Cynthia Rothrock. The "F3: Ferocious Femme Fatale" screenplay won Best Martial Arts Script at the 2016 URBAN ACTION SHOWCASE INTERNATIONAL ACTION FILM FESTIVAL in New York City. Nominated Best Action Script at the 2017 IRON DRAGONTV ACTIONFEST in Austin, TX. Nominated Best Action Sequence Feature at the 2017 ACTION ON FILM FESTIVAL in Las Vegas, NV. "F3: Kelly Vs.
