Today we’d like to introduce you to Drew “Tank” Garrett.
Drew, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Acting and film has always been in my blood. For years I watched my father go on auditions and work on commercials in Los Angeles. So I studied acting and film in high school and some in college. I never really followed through with anything. In 2012, I started acting again getting background roles and small parts on a few T.V. shows and movies being filmed here in Atlanta. As the film industry grew here, my goals and ambitions for myself grew too.
One day I saw a picture of Jesus walking on water but it was from the waters view, as if you were under the water looking up at Jesus. The caption said “Ye of little faith” I knew at that exact moment my time had come. I knew with some sacrifice and a little faith I could make something wonderful happen. I got rid of my car and use the money to buy my film equipment and Black Moses Entertainment was born.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
With any business, you have obstacles and challenges and I have had my fair share. I have had to be the actor, the director, the producer, the writer, the camera man and the sound man all in the same day. You have to deal with the actor and actresses, People not showing up or breaking their commitments, making sure your shoot starts and ends on time and that you have the shots you need and that everyone knows their roles and their lines. This has taught me how to compromise and overcome any situation and make on the fly adjustments.
Please tell us about Black Moses Entertainment.
I am proud that we are telling stories that will inspire, Stories that will make you think.
Stories of love and real-life reality. We also will film your wedding, music videos, commercials and any of your video production needs. What sets us apart is that we invite the community to our shoots to assist and learn video production. We invite the youth to get involved and become part. We have had interns from the local colleges come out and help us for extra credit.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite childhood memory was playing football as a kid. It taught me teamwork and leadership. We won together and we lost together but we were a team. To me, that’s a very important characteristic being able to work as a team.
