'Dongmei' is a collaboration of a talented and dedicated

team of independent filmmakers. Here's the crew!

The art of telling stories has always been a driving force for Cedric. With more than a decade of professional expertise, he seamlessly traverses between theater and film using his innate curiosity to produce works replete with depth.To gratify his need to produce works of substance, Cedric founded To and Fro Productions in 2005.

Bob Messinger has studied screenwriting under some of the brightest professionals in both New York and L.A. His scripts have placed in competitions such as Francis Ford Coppela's 2006 American Zoetrope Contest (Semi-Finalist), the 2012 ENDAS International Screenwriting Expo (Best Script), the 2011 Garden State Film Festival screenwriting competition (Top-5 Finalist), and six of his scripts have been winners in the Indie Gathering International Screenwriting Competition (2012-2015), including "Dongmei."

In addition to being an accomplished writer, cinematographer, editor, director and gaffer, Jack Solomon is an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan and Iraq.

His passion for and familiarity of film and his business acumen have been instrumental in all phases of production of "Dongmei." Like the rest of the team, Sree is a strong supporter of independent film and steadfast in his belief that too many stories of substance go untold every year.
