The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview William Dickerson.
William Dickerson is a writer and director whose debut feature film, "Detour," was hailed as an “underground hit” by The Village Voice, an “emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride” by The Examiner, and nothing short of “authentic” by The New York Times. He self-released his metafictional satire, "The Mirror," which opened YoFi Fest’s inaugural film festival in 2013 and he alsoe recently completed his third feature film, "Don’t Look Back," for MarVista Entertainment. His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country. His first book, "No Alternative," was declared, “a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in ‘90s music” by Kirkus Reviews. He currently serves on AFI’s Alumni Executive Board and is a Faculty Member at the New York Film Academy.
Based on his challenges while making his debut “microbudget” film, Detour, Dickerson walks the reader through every aspect of making a film in Hollywood. From style direction to financial obstacles, it’s a detailed guide of the experiences of up and coming filmmakers in Los Angeles.
Kirkus Reviews said Detour: Hollywood is “A breezy guide that takes readers inside the sometimes-hair-raising world of do-it-yourself filmmaking, capturing its many frustrations and challenges.”

Poetry helped Imani conquer depression:
Poetry, Imani McGee-Stafford says, saved her life.
She was still in middle school when she began putting the words rumbling through her head onto paper, filling notebook after notebook in search of a voice to break free of the depression that was choking her.
After being sexually abused as a child, the promising young basketball player attempted suicide three times by age 17. But she kept writing as part of her daily "dogfight" of emotions.
Eventually, that writing pulled her out of depression. She found her voice at slam-poetry competitions, where she could stand up and use poetry to tell her story.
Johnny Strozier spent over 45 years in the Georgia prison system, from age 10 in 1968 until 2013 when he was in his mid-50's. He joined us on "Human Rights Demand" to encourage others to keep the faith and stay out of prison. The call-in number is (347)857-3293 at 9pmEST every Saturday night to speak with Johnny and his guests to make a human rights demand to stop mass incarceration and encourage released prisoners to think right, act right, and then expect their lives to go right.
America has a recidivism rate of 67.5 percent, indicating that released prisoners need encouragement and practical help to successfully reenter society. Youths are still going to jail at astronomical rates, and prisoners are released every day. Johnny offers advice and information that will help redirect them.
Johnny's assembly of guests usually include a former prison chaplain and representatives from churches in and around Atlanta who offer subsistence assistance as well as spiritual advice and the opportunity to unite in fellowship with a body of believers who will encourage continued success for those reentering the community after prison release. This show is based in Christianity, but all people are welcome.
Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has, and it never will. ~Frederick Douglass
