BROOKLYN - An independent Brooklyn director is making waves in the film industry with a new movie based out of a traditional New York pizzeria.
Solvan "Slick the Misfit" Naim is debuting "Full Circle" at both the New York City International Film Festival and the Manhattan Film Festival this month.
The 24-year-old’s story is that of a young pizza deliveryman in Bushwick who stumbles upon a large amount of cash from a drug deal gone bad. It's set at Tony's Pizzeria, and features seasoned actor Rob Morgan.
Naim raised most of the $25,000 it cost to make the film through the website Kickstarter, which helps people raise money for creative projects.
