DIRECTOR, SHEQUETA SMITH, RAPS HER WAY INTO HBO’S PROJECT GREENLIGHT
They say that the magic happens when you’re working outside of your comfort zone. Therefore, when film director Shequeta Smith received an e-mail from HBO’s Project Greenlight, requesting her to film a funny bio video, her comfort zone quickly went out of the window. Smith, who would usually be behind the camera directing, was now going to have to be the star.
Thousands of videos had been submitted over the previous month and Smith’s concept trailer “The Gestapo vs. Granny” had been selected into the Top 200. If she wanted to make it to the Top 20, she was going to have to come up with something good and something fast.
The end result, a bikini laden rap video reminiscent of the hilarious Elle Woods (Legally Blonde) Harvard admission video. Like Elle, Smith made the cut and solidified her spot in the Top 20 for HBO’s Project Greenlight. Check out her clever rap in the video above.
