“One More Flip is a multi-layered film that has broadened and complicated itself in my mind, the longer I have lived with the project. Urban films are often viewed as negative by some, as it deals in subject matters such as drugs, and murders in the black community. My goal is never to glorify the plights in our inner cities however, we refuse to ignore them as well. In searching for a better future in a world that can be seen as unfamiliar, threatening, and something to be feared. To me, it shows bravery and resilience, surviving and battling systems that strategically repress any form of “otherness,” and the journey it took to get there. Detroit culture is made up of that “otherness”, you hear it every time you listen to an artist from Detroit. Artist like Sada Baby, Streetlord Rook, and Payroll Giovanni often tell stories about p perseverance through struggles plaguing the black community and that is what we want to glorify in this film.” – Ronnie Kirk
“A testament to the studio’s strength and ability to attract great talent is it’s cast.
Mena Monroe is an extraordinary, talented, leader on the project. It was an easy call
choosing her as the lead role in the fil. She is a great person to work with on a
production her work ethic is exceptional. The role demanded a great deal – long
nights and early mornings. I look forward to seeing her continued growth it’s exciting
for our company to contribute to her career progression.”
