About the Director: Vashmere Valentine
At only 20 years old, Vashmere Valentine began his acting career by appearing in various television commercials, on NBC’s Law & Order, and MTV’s VJ For A Day. Vashmere Valentine’s acting abilities were quickly acknowledged by Chris Rock when the actor and comedian chose Vashmere to read over the first script of the DreamWorks’ 2003 comedy, “Head of State.” In 2010, he turned his focus to storytelling and wrote the children’s book series, “The Dream Stowaway, “The Dream Stowaway in Forgotten Dreams,” and “Michael’s Wonderful World.”
In 2016, Vashmere was hired by CoLab Productions as director and screenwriter for “Voyage to the Moon,” a short film intended to raise awareness for child abuse, and later that year, Vashmere took on the role of creative director and screenplay writer for “Off-Beat,” a comedy that many are calling the next “Rush Hour.” Vashmere’s most recent projects include the multi-award-winning fantasy short film, “The Wish and the Wisp," which has won a total of 42 awards, received 33 nominations, and has been officially selected into more than 77 film festivals in both the United States and abroad. Vashmere is currently resides in Atlanta, GA.
