Teaser Trailer for upcoming motion picture.

In the podcast above I mention my first film and thesis film from USC. Click here to view those films.

My name is Arvel Chappell III. I am the writer/director of Compton: The Antwon Ross Story. It's an uplifting film about, redemption, perseverance and social mobility through flight. Not too many people know that Compton has an airport and it's my goal to take audiences above the streets of Compton to share in the freedom through flight with Antwon. I've spent a good amount of my life in Compton and have always wondered about the planes I'd see landing at the airport. Now as a filmmaker and pilot, this film takes you into that world.  This is a totally different type of film set in Compton. This is the real Compton... today. Check out the teaser trailer above to get a sense of what it's about and if you like what you see share, share and share again!
