InsideOut takes a the look into the life of Lee, a single black
woman living by her own rules and generally on her own turf. But when
tragic events force Lee to come face to face with a truth she can’t
hide, Lee must decide if she will confront her fears or run the risk of
being stuck inside forever.
InsideOut is the inaugural
film of ReelMavens, co-founded by Rebecca Nyahay and Raushanah Simmons.
The two collaborated to film the short written by Raushanah and
utilized whatever resources they had available on their $150 production
budget. The team of working actresses turned filmmakers has gone on to
produce two more short films and is currently working on their first
feature projects for ReelMavens. While they have grown significantly as
filmmakers in just one year, InsideOut, although technically rough
around the edges, is still their first baby and a film with heart, for
which they are very proud.
