AMERICAN PROPHET (Joseph Smith Hip-Hop movie)

A BICENTENNIAL TRIBUTE TO THE WORLD!

Alex Boye's "American Prophet" the movie is set in the early 1800's based around the story of religious leader Joseph smith, combining hip-hop, rap, r&b (think a cross between 'Hamilton' and 'The Greatest Showman')

The show will also include ethnic conscious casting of actors playing different roles. There will be a heavy use of modern day story-telling methods to bring a fresh twist to a 200 year old story. 

The story of the restoration is narrated by 3 slaves who have been set free by their slave masters on the condition that they would spend the rest of their lives as missionaries for their newly found religion. Although hesitant at first, the men see this as a better option than the prospect of navigating post slavery life on their own. There will be a soundtrack ( which we have already started) produced by grammy award winning producer who had produced for the likes of Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Snoop dog, and many more!

This is a real opportunity to get the message of the restoration out to the whole world, and the fulfillment of a dream I've had for a longtime, and I would love your help. I couldn't be more excited to see this bicentennial tribute come into fruition.  The script is being co-written by an award winning hollywood writer who helped write the screen play for  'Hidden figures' and 'Ali' and many many popular netflix movies, so you know we are working with nothing less than the best! There are 17 million saints worldwide that can be inspired by this production, and many people across the world who will hear this story in their own language and tongue.

(Movie will start shooting in June, and released in October)

Those who donate 10k or higher will have a chance to be in the movie, or even hang around on set and visit with the cast and crew. They that no man is an island. my goal is to create something wholesome, dynamic family "innertainment" that will lift and inspire all ages that we can all be proud of.
