MUSIC AND POETRY ON FILM
Finally, a modern Vampire story with bite!
DayBlack is a series of Graphic Novels written and illustrated by Atlana based painter and tatto artist Keef Cross. The story centers around Merce, a slave bitten by a vampire in the cotton fields, who works present day as a tattoo artist in the town of DayBlack, GA. With the help of director Justin Jordan (who’s credits include graphics design and art direction on the movie “Selma”), Keef has managed to bring this gritty, dark, beautiful comic to life through the short film “DayBlack – The Film”. We got a chance to actually see the film before it hits and it is flipping dope! Merce is played with icy coldness by Eugene Russell, the anchor in a stellar cast of Atlanta artists.
