I caught up with Demetrius Angelo creator of the Urban Action Showcase Expo at the Eternal Con earlier this summer for an update on the event. Demetrius also introduced me to the man who created the artwork for the upcoming Urban Action Showcase, Will “Focus” Dubois. This year is gonna be bigger and better than ever I can’t wait.
The Urban Action Showcase is a multi-day Independent Action Film Festival, Showcase, Action Script/Comic Book Competition, and Urban Action Expo premiering minority filmmakers specifically in the Action Film Genre. Action is the genre of choice of Fans and Studios alike when it comes to Summer Blockbusters not to mention 9 out of the top 10 highest grossing films to date all have Action at its core! The Danger, Thrill, and Excitement of the Action genre keeps us all at the edge of our seats from the small screen to the big screen and it would seem that the Action genre has it all accept for one very important factor, Diversity. Without equal opportunity and diversity any positive message can be misconstrued. By focusing on the thrill and excitement of the Action genre and recognizing the need for integration the Urban Action Showcase sets itself apart from other film festivals as the only one of its kind!
