Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, DeJuan Edward Ford Sr’s passion for film started at a young age. While his mother worked at the movie theater, he and his sibling would spend most of their time there watching movies. After graduating from Eastern Michigan University, DeJuan dove into the film industryand has been in it for 7 years now.

The 35-year-old describes himself as a leader and a role model for others, and credits the film industry for allowing him to express himself. Although a versatile filmmaker, DeJuan enjoys working on Urban Dramas, films that are based on true stories and focused on people’s life experiences. His latest project is a film titled “Tina & Lori”, scheduled for release on October 16th. One of his biggest accomplishments this year was giving two young actresses, Da’Carla Strong and Elizabeth Foxx, their first leading role in the film, calling them “superstars in the making.”

When asked about what makes him stand out from others in the industry, Dejuan makes it clear that he knows it’s not all about him. “I know this is not about me, it’s bigger than me. I am blessed with the opportunity to inspire others through this art form. My goal is to not only produce great films, but provide inspiration to others. I want them to use me as fuel to pursue their dreams. If I can do it, they can!” Speaking of inspiration, DeJuan talks about Ice Cube being one of his inspirations, as well as Mula Films (creators of McGraw Ave.) As far as his future goals, DeJuan hopes to continue to grow and build his team for his company (FAIM FILMS & DEJUAN FORD PRODUCTIONS), and also work on a few independent films.  

Be on the lookout for “Tina & Lori” coming out in October, and stay connected with DeJuan on Instagram (@dejuanford) and Facebook (DeJuan Ford).
