Reading and Math for Aaron

John Aaron has been selected to be a script reader for the upcoming Austin Film Festival. The timing is great as he recently wrapped his
engagement as Production Accountant for the MegaMind LLC feature film THE FIRST LADY OF BMF: The Tonesa Welch Story which will be aired on BET. The biopic charts Welch’s rise from teen mom to drug dealer to being labeled by federal prosecutors as “The First Lady of BMF.” Welch tells a harrowing story about riches, remorse, personal responsibility, and redemption set amidst the lavishness and extreme violence of Detroit’s crack era and America’s “war on drugs.”

Vivica Fox (HOLIDAY HIDEAWAY) directed the film based on a script by Gabrielle Collins; Tressa Azarel Smallwood (ALL IN) and Judge Greg Mathis (MADEA GOES TO JAIL) served as Executive Producers alongside Donte Lee and Delece James. The movie is produced by OCTFME Filmmaker of the Month Audrea Topps Harjo.
