CHEERS!

Marc Ewing, a Los Angeles based furniture designer, who is also a director, writer and actor, has been elected as a finalist in the Hollywood Black Film Festival’s Storyteller Competition for 2017.

Ewing, owner of  Ewing Arts & Designs, said the festival’s choosing of his screenplay, “The Descent of Man” — after a five-year break from his entertainment work — is proof that creating stories is something that he could continue to master.

The Hollywood Black Film Festival provides programs and incentives that encourage and develop black filmmakers — supporting diversity in the film industry.

Ewing’s screenplay, “The Descent of Man” is the story of a 10-year-old boy forced to learn Charles Darwin’s ideology “survival of the fittest.”
