'Tricks' in Tri-State Defender

The Tri-State Defender has a feature story on DeAara Lewis' "Tricks" that will be premiering at the Indie Memphis Film Festival (Monday, Oct. 22 at 9:55 p.m., and Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 3:10 p.m.)

An excerpt:

Lewis wrote and directed “Tricks,” and Chicago native, Rod Pitts, is cinematographer. Pitts said he and Lewis shot the film “in the summer of last year, all over Memphis. There were some hot days, but otherwise it was perfect.” Pitts is an award-winning filmmaker who attributed the ease of location scouting to the city’s friendly residents.

“I’ve been here in Memphis off and on about five years now,” said Pitts. “And it’s really easy to work here. People were very forthcoming about allowing us to use their locations. And we shot all over – from downtown to South Memphis to East Memphis.”

Lewis, along with actress LaDonna Long and filmmaker and actor Keenon Nikita, is already working on her next project, a trilogy that she hopes will make Hollywood pay attention.
