A Nikkiyo Short Film about Family, Faith and the Enduring Strength of Family Ties

Atlanta -- Atlanta-based Nikkiyo Films presents the short film “Whistle Lesson”. The film is about a young girl’s special relationship with her grandfather, the valuable lessons he teaches her and the enduring strength of family ties and spiritual bonds. Filmed in Southwest Atlanta and College Park, the SAG signatory project was shot on mini-DV within a six day production schedule.

This touching story of family, love and faith stars Georgia-based stage and screen veterans Charles Black and Freda Scott Giles, and features the film debut of 7-year old Josephine Lawrence. The cast also includes Aviya Payne, James Austin and writer/director Nikki Young.

“We are extremely proud to wrap production on our second film project,” said Nikkiyo Films Founder and CEO, Nikki Young. “The commitment and dedication of the cast and crew is reflected in the beautiful story we were able to capture on film.”

Tony “Shock” Shockency was Director of Photography and Judge Luckey served as Associate Producer and Casting Director on the project. The film features the music of teen sensation Brandon Kane, along with an original score composed by Krisi Young. The 25 minute film will be submitted to various film festivals and screened at independent screenings throughout the country.
