I have some very exciting news to share!
My spoken word movie, "The Call" has made it through to the "Consideration Phase" of the HBO Short Film Competition for the ABFF - American Black Film Festival! (held mid-June in Miami).
My IMDB profile and all that jazz is being worked on behind-the-scenes so I'll have an official IMDB.com (Internet Movie Database) Profile set up for "The Call" and all of my creative film-related works/credits going forward.
So that being said, I definitely wanted to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone for being early supports and followers of my creative works! I truly wouldn't be where I am today without you offering the kinds of encouragement and support I have received thus far.
Should you want to keep track of the event details, the hashtags are #ABFF2017 and #WeAreABFF.
Wish me luck! *Fingers-crossed*
Also, much continued success to you and your efforts as well! Let's continue to keep our passions in front of us, be dream chasers and hit our goals for 2017!
Have a safe and wonderful day!
Watch my 1st spoken word poetry movie here.
I just wanted to give you the link for my live stream. I'm super excited and really hope you can attend the stream! Again it starts at noon.
Also, if you haven't done so already, check out the awesome trailer I created for the movie:
Enjoy the rest of the day and hope this finds you well as always.
Peace. Lamont Wilkins
Join me LIVE at noon on October 15th, 2016 for the release of my first spoken word poetry movie!
Watch the story of a young couple destined to be together until a chilling twist of events changes everything. Was it truly just a random act like authorities & neighbors claim? Or was it karma…staged & fueled by a jealous rage?
Stay tuned and mark your calendars for October 15th at Noon to watch the live stream video!
Go watch the trailer here:
Good morning all!
Here's my tribute piece that I did for 9/11.
We've all been there, right? Post-breakup....the stressing and sleepness nights....the depression and seeking reasoning why....the heartache, blame game and shame.....
When you've finally accepted it's over between you and your ex and it all comes spilling out next.....
Here's my story.
Happy Friday you guys and thanks as always for continuing to support me. Have a good weekend.
Good afternoon everyone!

I wanted to share a very special spoken word piece that I wrote for Mother's Day with you! You can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uYLrROGNsM
I also mentioned previously that I've recently uploaded a piece written for the single moms out there as well, which in case you missed it, can be found here: https://youtu.be/OszRrU5bFXs
Next month, I'll be releasing two pieces in similar fashion for the dads out there also! One for Father's Day and another called Single Dad Story.
Needless to say, I hope you continue to stay tuned in!
Enjoy the upcoming weekend and take care.
To commemorate the month of May being "for moms" and in addition to the Mother's Day piece I'll be releasing on Mother's Day, I've just uploaded a new video called "Single Mom Story". I'll be doing the same for the dads next month as well!

Also, over the weekend, I was contacted on Twitter by Bruce George who is the Co-Founder of HBO's series Def Poetry Jam with Russell Simmons. Bruce also started a website called "Genius Is Common" (hashtag #GeniusIsCommon) and respectively, I've been personally asked to join in & create a a spoken word piece for the movement as well!
I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for the support that you have shown and I truly, truly THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for that unyielding endorsement with my spoken word efforts!
I hope you all had a good weekend, & I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
