1410 Media Group joined resources with the T Rich Dream Believe Work Foundation to offer to students and mentors workshops on storytelling and filmmaking. The workshop included sessions on The Art of Storytelling and a special Young Writers Workshop on writing for the screen. The partnership continued with the Pre-Production Workshop which featured an audition clinic and an audition for film roles in the short film production of Silent Cry, an original story by the mentees and mentors of the T Rich Foundation. The film is the capstone project to all the various workshops on storytelling and filmmaking. The audition clinic was be under the direction of Mr. DeAndre Lewis, North Little Rock high school theatre Instructor and Ms. Char Dupins, theatre student at UA Little Rock.
The partnership expanded to include local production companies joining their resources together to help the youth and mentors of the T Rich Foundation to complete their first short film. During the Pre-Production Workshop, these companies shared with the youth and mentors what goes on behind the camera to capture the experience on film. Those production companies included 1410 Media Group, LLC, Argenta Pictures, LLC, Medley Island Studios, and Dreamers Corner Media. They will also assist with the production shoot and post-production for the film. The youth and mentors participated in a workshop on Post-Production. With a little hard work and grace from God, they premiered their first short film during the annual Fundraising Gala for the T Rich Foundation in November 2018
