We had the good fortune of connecting with Mister Edison and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mister, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
I moved to AZ around 4 years ago and searched high and low for roles to fit my personality and my genre. I came up short multiple times due to the constant horror films or cowboy flicks, so I created Edison Films.

Edison Films is a comedy film production group that creates content for the culture. I always feel I am the resource for certain individuals to come and display their talents and it is my job to get them seen and maximize their strengths on camera. You don’t need a six pack or straight teeth to get a lead in any of my content,

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am standup comic/film writer/director/actor.

I have comedy web series on YouTube along with comedy skits.

I am now in preproduction for my first feature film entitled “Not A Game”

In order to get to where I am today I literally had to bet on myself and put myself on. I wasn’t getting casted so I created content myself and casted, myself.

I want the world to know that I have arrived and it’s only up from here. Creatively I will reach heights I can’t even imagine right now. Get with me before the price go up.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I am a lifelong learner and learn from everyone!

I have picked up many strategies from the book Save the Cat by Blake Snyder – The Last book on Screenwriting

My style of comedy is inspired by Eddie Murphy.

I am inspired by Tyler Perry to create my own network and relentless drive. He is the definition on creating roles for yourself and not waiting on anyone to to give you a role.

I owe the Eastside of Indianapolis for giving me the chip on my shoulder today. If you make it out of there you can make it out of anything.

I owe my lovely wife. If I didn’t have her motivating me and keeping me aligned I wouldn’t be where I am today.
