Determined to incorporate filmmaking into her passion for storytelling, King left the East Coast in 2003 to return to her home state and attend the Motion Picture Institute of Michigan. After graduating from MPI with honors, she premiered On The Other Side in 2005 to benefit the Coalition On Temporary Shelter, South Oakland Shelter and Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan.
To make On The Other Side, King tapped a penchant for crafting black-and-white cinema, sans the benefit of dialogue, that she acquired while first learning about film production at Montclair State University. There, she was inspired by the transition in her life at that time to help produce the stark yet provocative short film, Who Knows? King drew from personal experience once again to later write, direct and produce On The Other Side as the narrative look at a day in the life of a homeless woman that would be her thesis film at MPI.
The latter movie’s Michigan premiere at the Birmingham 8 Theatre in 2005 was not only highlighted by newspapers and radio stations throughout Metro Detroit. On The Other Side was also later shown around the country by the likes of Women In Film at the Hollywood Entertainment Museum in Los Angeles; The Mitten Movie Project at the Main Art Theatre in Royal Oak, MI; the Trinity Film Coalition in Detroit; the Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival in suburban Atlanta; and the 2006 Christian Film/Television Market International at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
On The Other Side was dubbed Best Inspirational Film at the Jokara-Micheaux Family Film/Video Festival in Georgia in 2006, and nominated for an Agape Gospel Theater & Film Award at the Apollo Theater in New York City the following year. Further details about On The Other Side can be found on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb).
In 2006 King used a cast of Detroit-area middle and high school students to produce All That, a short dramatization probing the mounting social pressures on girls to become sexualized at ever younger ages. Most recently, she has partnered with Tony D. Luckett, screenwriter and director of the haunting short film Beautiful that was featured at the 11th annual Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles, to continue to bring compelling stories that enlighten, inspire and entertain to the screen.
