Video Clips from the Emmy Nominated ‘A House Divided’ & ‘Bronx SIU’

“here are a few that I enjoyed not only creating, but as a fan.”


Demetria McKinney & Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs

Cameron finds out his wife was just held at gun point, because of something he did. 

“I loved blocking this moment. So much is happening here. Each person has done terrible things and their armor is starting to dent as plans and plots quickly unravel.”



It’s corny, but at times, I love a good montage … 


The one is from Bronx SIU, a dark and gritty police Crime Drama. In these moments, a character is dealing with the fall out of being kidnapped and having all her beliefs challenged.  The rest of the team starts to fracture … 


This montage is also from Bronx SIU. In these final moments, everything comes unraveled. Secrets are exposed and our main character, played by Shanti Lowry, our lead detective, finally breaks and goes on a violent rampage.


Demetria McKinney, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Glen Plummer & LisaRaye McCoy

Khalil Kain & SIU Team

‘This scene was a beast. It was raw and organic. We all worked to get it there. It was tough also. Yolanda’s Father was an abusive man who used to molest her, but now he has dementia and doesn’t remember. Yolanda, who takes care of him and pays for his nursing home, can no longer hold back the years of torment and abuse she quietly endured … the result is this scene.”
