Our Story

My Cousin, David C. Snyder, and I started making movies when we he was 12 and I was 9 years old with just a VHS Camcorder and a dream and the rest is history.

Between our love for urban movies such as Boyz N The Hood and Do The Right Thing and our disdain for the way Hollywood treats black talent, it motivated and inspired us to start HWIC Filmworks in 2008 so that we could fill that void.

And to top it all off, my city of Cleveland, Ohio with its gritty backdrop and abundance of diverse locations made it the perfect metropolis to showcase our style of movies as Cleveland is about as authentically urban as it gets.

Most importantly I wanna thank you for allowing us to live out our dream and make movies that help you escape for an hour and a half or so but most importantly make you think.
