Hollywood Music In Media Awards Nominates "Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone"
The 2023 Hollywood Music In Media Awards nominated “Don’t Forget Me When I’m Gone” for Song-Independent Film, from the feature film “Sons 2 The Grave.” The awards will be held November 15th in Los Angeles. The film is produced by Canadian production company Have Faith Productions (HFP) which is ran by mother- daughter team, author, screenwriter, and producer, Lynne Stoltz and Toronto executive producer and publicist, Sasha Stoltz, in association with FilmRise and Incendo.
“Don’t Forget Me When I’m Gone” is performed by Juno award winner Sean Jones who brought heart, soul, and understanding to a heartbreaking scene, leaving us in tears. Because of the continuing popularity of “Sons 2 The Grave,” Have Faith Productions will produce the television series, “Hudson” inspired by the movie. “Sons 2 The Grave” filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, tells the story of basketball phenom, Marcus Jennings. With one foot in Hudson and one in the NBA, Marcus is taken out.
After midnight on a footbridge that separates million-dollar homes of the rich, famous, and the politically connected from subsidized housing, Marcus Jennings is shot twice in the head. With a message sent to the community., a code of silence remains in place, fostering a common element that binds this community--fear and the currency of payback will always be bloodshed. "We are our brother’s keeper" is just a slogan in Hudson. Ruth Jennings moved to Hudson for her son, his school was regularly visited by scouts.
A strong, hardworking single mother, Ruth thought she could protect her child against all odds and choices, but Marcus found it hard to fight off his new surroundings and mislaid loyalties. Marcus thought he was in control. A boy living in a man’s body, living up to his and others' exaggerated egos. He attracted the attention of scouts, agents, and Division 1 NCAA schools in the US--a pitstop before the NBA. Marcus also attracted the attention of RD. RD controlled Hudson and worked for those who controlled him.
In the end it was what they all had in common that ended Marcus’s life…fear. “We’re born sons and we die sons. Somewhere in between is the story.” Ruth Jennings believes God sees all. There is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. But for now… there is Hudson.
“Hudson” the series will pick up from there. HFP will bring actors and music from Hip Hop, R&B, and Soul royalty together with high profile community and faith leaders. The episodes will echo a line from the movie, “This ain’t no fairy tale… this is “Hudson.” Episodes will take viewers into the heart of the city from upscale streets to back alleys. Social status not always pre-determining who turns up where. “Hudson” will capture the politics and the temperament of the city in raw, powerful, and heart wrenching episodes, that will have the audience attached to the characters, routing for them even when they fall and disappoint.
