Action 4 Reel Flimworks is the production company of veteran movie and television stuntman Roy T. Anderson and his wife Alison G. Anderson. The company aims to bring the underrepresented histories and cultures of peoples of African descent, such as the Maroons, to worldwide audiences through film and related media. Akwantu: the Journey, the award-winning feature documentary on the legendary Maroons of Jamaica, is the first film project in this series. There is also an accompanying Discussion Guide designed to encourage and promote dialogue and debate around the film; and will be followed by a book titled Akwantu: the Journey of the Jamaican Maroons, 1655 to Present; co-authored by Anderson and Georgia State University History Professor, Dr. Harcourt T. Fuller. The next filmed installment exploring the Maroon experience in the New World is Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess, a 1-hr documentary that sheds light on Jamaica’s only female National Heroine. Principal photography begins summer 2014.
There's no question the filmmaking process is quite expensive, but on a global scale it can have a major impact, which is what we are hoping for in this bold initiative. For our groundbreaking series we rely on financial contributions from individuals, and on grants from charitable foundations and government agencies.
