Tell Me More and Then Some

Movie Premiere Coming Soon

Tell Me More and Then Some is finished post production. We are in the process of determining which film festival the movie will premiere. We are actively seeking investors at this time.

Eubie Blake

The image above is from a film clip of Eubie Blake performing with Noble Sissle in the 1920's. We have recently worked with the Library of Congress to get a high-resolution digital transfer of the original film. There are many more digital transfers of old footage that will be included in the movie.

In order to get the facts and the history correct, we have been working closely with Philip J. Merrill and Nanny Jack and Company and we have also been working with Siobhan Hagan and MARMIA, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Moving Image Archive. Both Philip and Siobhan are Producers on the movie. The movie is directed by filmmaker Jon Henry. This is his first feature film release.

Eubie's Birthday documented on WMAR in 1983

The Music Video: Behind the Scenes


We recreated a Billie Holiday concert taking place in 1942. In the concert, a Billie Holiday classic "Tell Me More and Then Some" is performed by Integriti Reeves, Warren Wolf Jr and other local Baltimore jazz stars. The music video will also feature rotoscope animation of Billie Holiday. The music video will be released upon the films world premiere. Above, Integriti Reeves is depicted as Billie Holiday.
