OSI (pronounced Oh-see) 
Release date: November 2011

This short film is a drama.
Written by Reondo Minor
Produced by Kevin Coleman and Derrick Phillips

Directed by Kevin Coleman

Osi is a nice guy trying to do the right thing and protect his girlfriend Alyssa from the day to day life of being addicted to drugs. He is friends with Reggie the toughest guy and girlfriend stealer in a neighborhood of North St. Louis. Alyssa quickly sends their already troubled lives down a rabbit hole of betrayal when she falls into Reggie's trap. Osi confronts Reggie about his obsession with Alyssa which may jeopardize his quest for a better life.

The film is a look at an inner city community where words are rarely used to solve problems. Enough killing! What if we walked away instead of fighting when there’s conflict .
