Introducing "Almost Home" The Web Series

 

Written by actress Reagan Gomez & directed by Matthew A. Cherry. "Almost Home" is about a woman named Lisa (Reagan Gomez) and her younger brother DeJuan. Lisa & Dejuan  move to L.A from Chicago after the passing of their mother. Lisa is a stylist and DeJuan is a musician. The show also features it's share of drama, including Lisa's crazy ex fiance randomly showing up in Los Angeles. Lisa and Dejuan are both forced to make changes and face their fears while ensuring that the family stays together. One of the standout elements of the show is that it features original music and unique fashion.

The show also features cameos from Jackie Long, Wesley Jonathan, & (the extremely beautiful) Denyce Lawton. The cast also includes indie musicians DeJuan Turrentine (who was featured on this site), Queen, and Ryan Hahn.

Reagan Gomez created and funded this series herself. She started an online campaign to raise money to continue filming additional episodes after she funded the first few.

"This project is so important to me. We NEED more women of color behind the scenes in Hollywood. And, if all goes well with this campaign, my ultimate goal, is to continue to use INDIE GO GO to create, original content for actors and actresses of color. A webseries now, a film later?" - Reagan Gomez

  1. what I like about film maker Reagan Gomez is she gets it, she knows even in 2013 it still takes a village to effectively get things done. I applaud her for crowd funding on Indiegogo and including family and friends in her projects. We can learn a lot from this film makers movies and watching how she moves in this business. Great article fam, will for sure be back to read other articles on artist and film makers I respect. Keep winning
