Art & Second Chances

TMF is working on a project alongside Carolyn Jean’s Son Visions and Early Riser Films, and while that is still in production, this short documentary – Art & Second Chances – tells one aspect of the story we’re working on.

Three organizations – the Alabama Arts Alliance, Leadership Montgomery, and Renascence Inc. – came together to teach art classes to formerly incarcerated men in Montgomery, AL.

March is Arts Education Month

Terrible Master Films recently worked with the Alabama Arts Alliance to produce this video promoting Arts Education Month.

Students and educators from Booker T. Washington Magnet High School and Alabama State University’s Art Department participated in the video.

The mission of the Alabama Arts Alliance is to increase public awareness of and engagement in the arts through education and advocacy.

Special thanks to artist/educator Chintia Kirana and Kress on Dexter for the interview location and Donna Russell of the Alabama Arts Alliance for making this video possible.
