Graphic Design Alumnus Co-directs Adobe Award-Winning Film

Denzel Boyd (BFA ’17) co-directed the Adobe Award-winning film “Hell You Talmbout.” The film was created in collaboration with the VCUarts Dance + Choreography department and was supported through a 2016-17 Undergraduate Research Grant.

Forgotten News, Forgotten Namesboldly presents a short film “Hell You Talmbout,” (co-directed by Denzel Boyd, VCUarts Graphic Design 17’) that artfully addresses police violence, racial injustice, the Black Lives Matter movement through spoken word, and a tap dance performance from the perspective of our youth. In partnership with Studio 23 and the VCUarts Dance Department, the team proposed a series of events to follow the initial public screening–a screen printing session and a social dance workshop–engaging the community with the themes of the film.
