Christmas Gift

Today is the day! The day that we all long for throughout the year. The day you get to spend with your family. The day we remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus. The day we give to one another and open presents with joy.

What could possibly make this day any better you ask?.........

Thats right, like we've promised, OTAB is of course showcasing the Brand new music video "Crumbling Therapy" from some of our favorite artists out of Inglewood California.... OVERDOZ. Their newest Mix Tape-- NOVA is dropping January first, so be ready for that.

As for now... Check out the hottness, and


OverDoz's "Crumbling Theory" Lauched!!

OverDoz have given the world a wonderful Christmas Present: Their premier of the most anticipated music video, "Crumbling Theory", Directed by Mac Faulkner and Produced by Ezekiel Philips. This video could take the music industry towards a different aspect on how to make music videos. Also, the music of OverDoz is highly innovate with their style of Hip-Hop, with Rock fused in it to give you a flavor of music that have your senses experience euphoria.

Producer, Ezekiel Philips, have done well hiring Mac Faulkner to Direct the video. Nowadays with the same redundant Hip-Hop videos on BET and MTV, "Crumbling Theory" gives us that fresh air to breath when it regards creativity. The Star Trek motif is comedic and will keep the audience interest mix in heavy with Cannibus innuendos. More of music videos should have a story line to get an A+ with the audience like with "Crumbling Theory" when James T Kush, Mr. Spark, and Bongs McCough is off to find their "magic herb" planet but soon to find their weed-world turned into a barren terrane. Will the starship crew ever survive without the good herb? What will our heros do next?

OverDoz is a freakin' boss Hip-Hop group! Their style, rhythm, and rhyme scheme will sure enough set off the country. Radios will soon blast the music of this phenomenal group. Will OverDoz be the next A Tribe Called Quest of the West Coast, or will they absolutely be Hip-Hop figure heads that the industry have not experienced before? Their mixtape, "Bowties & Rosaries", is music deemed to be everyones iTunes. The mixtape is available through OverDoz's website:

Regards towards the making of the video, amazing special effects on board the starship is more than exceptional. It is orgasmic. A lot of the panning and transitions is fluid and precise that you almost think you are watching a movie. Even OverDoz have done a amazing job with their acting. I would like to make a prophecy that they will be on the silver screen one day, to give us a Thespian performance of a soon to be classic. Can I also predict Mr. Philips to produce and direct?

A quick Cinema Secret: The location of the planet was shot at a Los Angeles beach!

Ladies and Gentlemen, please check out the World Premier of OverDoz's "Crumbling Theory"

Have a Wonderful Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We know that yall have probably been at the edge of you seat waiting to see thos poppin video. . .

Check out the hotness...

Starting A "New"

Many children yearly go through the pains of being the “new kid”: starting over in a new town – or country – and having to adjust to their new surroundings, as well as coping with having to close a chapter in their life, and the circumstances in which it closed. I was one of them, having moved from an Indiana suburb to the busy city of Miami at the young age of ten. So it was easy to identify with the main character in the short film New Boy, written and directed by Steph Green. Based on the short story by Roddy Doyle, NewBoy tells the story of Joseph, a little African boy starting over in a new school in Ireland. Just as I was, as were many “new boys” and girls before me, Joseph was teased and picked on by his classmates, but was careful to keep his cool and stay silent. However, throughout the film, there are flashbacks of moments he spent back in Africa with his father, who was a school teacher. In these flashbacks lie the real reason for Joseph’s big continental move.

Some may not fully understand the magnitude of Joseph’s back-story, but I think we can all relate to a time where we felt out of place or misunderstood, how fortunate we are if we can find at least one person (no matter how small) to stand up for us, how our past can govern our actions, and how all things come together in the end. However, this film did give me lots of laughs (kids say the darndest things), which served as some great comic relief to go along with this endearing story. Check it out!!

What is Love? Well, Love is...

This short is based on the scripture of 1 Corinthians 13:4. Watch the video, and then go read the scripture. And then come back and watch it over and over again. You will discover new meaning each time you watch. Make it your daily reminder of what TRUE love is. Enjoy. (Produced, Directed, and Edited by Stephen Love aka "Docta Love")


"My chucks, come in all shapes and sizes, but the High-top Chucks are made for Ridaz"

As many of you know, if you ever see Zeek and I in passing at school or in our travels, you will often see us wearing our High-top red Chuck Taylor sneakers. These timeless shoes are most definitely the original tennis shoe and have yet to go out of style.

As an independent film major at Spelman College, students of the AUC will often find me walking across the campuses constantly throughout the day heading to CAU's media arts department to head to the Studios or Editing Labs. This fall semester for my Fundamentals of Film class, I decided to do a cleaver little Chucks commercial to demonstrate the very basics of filmmaking and use of point of view. The great thing about film and photography is the many ways you can take advantage of space and environment to portray just about anything. With the support and efforts of a couple of students from my AUC family, we were able to do a quick and fun project.

Dreams Do Come True in New Orleans!

History is made on December 11, 2009, when Disney released their first African-American Princess movie, The Princess and the Frog, in theaters nationwide. This movie is very culturally significant, being it is the first African-American princess. I had to take my mother and sister to see this movie during opening weekend, because I believe that every black mother and their daughter(s) should see this movie with each other.

Directed by John Musker and Ron Clements (Little Mermaid, Aladdin), the movie sets in New Orleans during the Jazz Age (1920's), with a story about Tiana, a young black lower-class woman, working very hard to make her dream of owning an elaborate restaurant come true. But her aspiration is hindered when she meets a funny and awkward little frog who claims to be a prince and wants to be turned back into human again. The frog prince assumes that Tiana is a princess, and desires to kiss her to be turned back into human again. The frog kisses Tiana but turns her into a frog as well. Thus an adventure of finding how to get both of them back to humans commences.

Prior to the films release, many people were skeptical about many aspects of the film. The top two significances are the prince is not black and the setting, New Orleans. Many view the film to be racist because in order for the main protagonist of the film to be a princess, she has to be a frog first (which is not the case). The best advice to deal with these accusations towards the film is for viewers to go see the film first then make their judgements upon the evidence of the film. Conclusions should not be drawn until the complete viewing of the film.

Overall, and pass racial accusation that the film has, Princess and the Frog is a great movie. Wonderful music and fantastic storytelling. The film stars Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls), a Tony Award winning actress and Bruno Campoos (Nip/Tuck) a Brazilian-born actor who voiced for Prince Naveen in the film. Oprah Winfrey, Terrance Howard, John Goodman and Keith David, who plays the evil and demonic Dr. Facilier, are also featured in the film.

Yes, it is mainly a film for kids, but anyone who is a filmmaker or passionate about African-American history have to see this film, because it is certain that Princess and the Frog will be part of African-American History canon.

A Trip to the Mountains

Sometimes you just need a break. A break from school, a break from people, and a break from the city. That is when you have to take time for yourself and reflect. This isn't your ordinary 31 day trip to the mountains. Take a look!

One thing I love and appreciate is a well made, well directed, well shot, and well thought

out Music Video. After a very interesting past year Mr. Chris Brown is making his way back on

to the scene in a major way. When creative minds of different realms come together as a

collective, there is almost always a genius product. This particular song in itself is very well

produced as it includes a collaboration of some of the top mainstream artists of this time, and

has received great responses since it hit the sound waves. That, however, is not to mention the

bangin' video that was created to complement it.

"I can transform Ya" is a creative piece that stood out to me amongst the many new

videos that have been pushed during this season. There is an exciting display of artistry, as well

as the advancements of technology at this time. Check it out!!!!

Domestic Violence

While we focus on awareness On The Applebox, I wanted to take this time to share with you a piece that was created in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, October 2009. During the homecoming season we shared with you all the winners of the Miss Black and Gold Pageant here in the AUC at Morehouse College for the Alpha Rho Chapter. Ms. Lynsey Mitchell (Miss Black and Gold 2009/2010) and I had the pleasure of putting our heads together to create a project that would bring light to a very serious matter that is often ignored. Ms. Mitchell, her court, and myself all were blessed with the opportunity to work with other very talented young women and gain knowledge from insightful individuals. Though this particular project was a very quick make, we know that the content has, can, and will continue to make a difference.

I thank Miss Black and Gold and her Court, the Distinguished men of the Alpha Rho Chapter, as well as Mr. Ali Banks for his editing, and all of the individuals that took part in creating this piece that we each hold dear to our hearts.

Don't forget On the Applebox to BE Informed!!!

Its Hidden...

On that Cup....

On her brush.....

On his fork....

In that toothbrush....

The worst part is.....

Its in THEIR blood.

The question is...

Is it in yours?

Today is world AIDS day. I feel as though I would be remiss if I did not take but a few moments to recognize the existence of this disease on today. Like all disease, illness, disaster, tragedy, epidemic, we as a human race should recognize these things EACH day.... not just today. However, since today we have your attention... STOP, THINK, PAY CLOSE ATTENTION, LEARN, TAKE INTEREST and FIND OUT if your helping save ... or if your adding to the problem.

If you didn't know.


BE Informed:

It takes a VILLAGE to raise a child....

The Bible tells us to train up a child in the way that they should go, so when they get old they would not depart.
Majidah Muhammad is most def taking heed to that verse and training up her Pre-K students. How do I know? Because I spent a whole day with her in DC to make sure of that. Not only did I sit in her class from 8am- 3pm, but you already know I had my camera on me... YUP!!! I filmed the whole time while I was there. Being there with the students brought nothing but memories back. Oh! how I reminisced all the way on the plane ride back to Atlanta about how I wish I was a kid again. Majidah opened my eyes to a lot things I was taking for granted. Like the BEAUTIFUL generation thats coming up behind me, and how I will need them to be my doctors & lawyers when I get old. I wouldn't trade that day for anything in the world and I would do anything just to get that day back. It's now days later from when I last saw them and their voices are still in my head. WOW!!! The FUTURE looks good. Check out the video!

The LOVE of a Family

Soul Food is no doubt my FAVORITE family movie. Whenever all the family members are under one roof, spending family time you can always count on the movie Soul Food to do a lil entertaining. The movie touches on so many topics; Love, Patience, Commitment, Greed, and much more. If you were to ask anyone in my family how much I love this movie, they would probably tell you that the movie drove them crazy because I played it so much. The acting in the film was POWERFUL and the story was PHENOMENAL! My whole family isn't with me for Thanksgiving this year but the lady who gave me birth is here with me so I guess its time for some REAL Soul Food!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you all.... Take a minute to watch the clips be low of the movie "Soul Food" & ALWAYS REMEMBER that, Those with a loving family are wealthier than those with much money.

Something New

One thing that fascinates me each day here in the Atlanta University Center, is the countless number of strong young Men surrounding us. Young man that will soon be successful entrepreneurs, and business men. Morehouse college in particular often provides seminars, workshops, and classes regarding different aspects of what it takes to become those things.
Recently a marvelous woman by the name of Dr. White, provided a workshop for many of her students on Dinning Etiquette. Not only did this particular workshop include an international perspective, but it was also blessed with words from the always profound President of Morehouse College, Dr. Robert Franklin. So, of course, On The Applebox was there to broaden our horizons and catch the highlights of a incredible evening.

"Precious" is Truly Precious!

"Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire" is now indeed part of the cinema canon! It is a film that everyone should know. A film that everyone should hold dearly to their hearts as long as they live. If you haven't seen it, you have missed half your life! Mo'Nique have given an outstanding performance that no one's eyes have ever experienced in an actress. Her acting is superb in every sense of our five senses, that even Spider-Man's spider sense will tingle in epilepsy! It's that serious of a movie! You have to see it!

Based off the book, "Push" by Sapphire, "Precious" is about a coming of age young African-American girl who is significantly over weight, pregnant by her father for the second time, and abused by her mother on a day-to-day basis. Claireece Precious Jones, played by Gabourey 'Gabby' Sidibe, must fight to receive better education and escape the iron fist of her mother's tyranny while struggling to gain custody of her children.


(January 16, 2009 - Photo by Getty Images/Getty Images North America)

(From Left to Right: Mariah Carey, Gabourey 'Gabby' Sidibe, Lee Daniels, Mo'Nique, and Paula Patton.)

Director, Lee Daniels (Monster's Ball, Shadowboxer), is a genius at his prime. He created a fine portrat of the gritty life of a disfunctional relationship of a mother and daughter. Many scenes was shot with handheld cameras to provoke horrific moments and edited with time lapse transitions to emphasizes the importance of what Precious is going through in key moments. I seriously believe that Daniels will get great regards in Hollywood for his remarkable vision of the movie. We can expect to see his next film being sold out as much as "Precious" was during this opening weekend.

The acting is one hundred and ten percent flawless. Mo'Nique have set far beyond the standard for any actor or actress to play the villain. She have frighten the audience with her portrayal of Mary, Precious' mother, and her belligerent ignorance. Sidibe (Precious) have done an enchanting job to make the literary figure come to life with graceful and elaborate acting. She has now become one of the central figures in our movie going hearts, beckoning the universe for us to see another performance of her once again in the future. Paula Patton, Robin Thicke's wife who plays Precious' alternative school teacher, loves to uplift the audience as a kind hearted, tough educator who teaches Precious how to "Push" her limits when life doesn't go the way she wants it to. Mariah Carey is also in the movie as a social worker who helps Precious with her difficult life. It is refreshing to see the wonderful superstar in this movie for her acting is rewarding to watch as well.

Only opened in 18 theaters across the country (New York, Atlanta, Los Angles, and Chicago) in highly African-American populated neigborhoods, it is very important to see this film. This movie is real! It deals with the nature, the depression, the hurt, the shame of domestic violence and the affects of it to a child. It also evokes and clarifies how important education is, no matter how horrible one's life is. I also give high regards to Sapphire for writing the wonderful book, "Push", and encourage anyone to read it.

To some, "Precious" could be just another feel good movie, but to most of us, real movie buffs, it is a work of a masterpiece by Lee Daniels that should be treated as the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci.

-Stefon Z. Bristol,

Please take two minutes of your time to watch the trailer of the next academy award-winning film.

Michael Jackson's "This Is It!"

It is unfortunate that an extraordinary movie about the last days of the baddest entertainer in world history and rehearsals for the biggest show of the century is only in theaters for two weeks, world wide. "This Is It", directed by Kenny Ortega, is a phenomenon. A show that whoever is really interested in show business, fans or no fans of Michael Jackson, have to see this...or they have missed half of their lives!

"This Is It" shows the passion and the commitment, as well as the massive creativity that Michael Jackson has for the largest rock/pop concert of all time. During rehearsal, Jackson does the best he can, in an absolute modest way, to convey what he really wants in the show. He does the best he can not get anyone offended when something does not go his way or whenever something goes wrong. Jackson takes complete control of the show, telling everyone and anyone what he wants, when he wants it, and how he wants it. All the while staying true as a human being with complete understanding of each individual. A true maverick of a artist and a workaholic at his best. It bring tears and heartache while you watch this due to his shocking death, but definitely a corner stone for anyone pursuing a career in this industry. As you watch this movie, I highly encourage you to take notes. The way Jackson treats people on how to make them perform their duties for the show by the way he wants them to is absolute flawless!

The movie also showcases the practices of Jackson's greatest hits such as "Wanna Be Starting Something", "Earth Song", "Billie Jean", "Thriller" and many more. The dancers are highly enthralled to be working with their childhood icon. No matter how rigorous the rehearsals might be, they feel extremely fortunate to be right next to their hero on stage, and would do anything to make the show what it needs to be.

Unfortunate it may be that "This Is It" is only running for a very short two weeks, I highly regard anyone, of any age, to go see this movie, quickly, in it's grand theatrical setting. If not, when it comes out, and I hope it comes out, on DVD...Purchase it! Because if you don't see Michael Jackson in his truest being in his artistry during his final days, you have missed half of your life! Guaranteed!!

Please take time to watch the trailer of this grand world wide event!

We All Start Somewhere

It is true that in this industry we all have to start somewhere.. However, this individual did not just start anywhere. He started right next door, at Clark Atlanta University, the institution in which I am currently receiving my Film education while attending Spelman College.

BRYAN BARBER is a fantastic Filmmaker that began studying under one of my dearest mentors, "Dr. E" here in the AUC, during his undergraduate schooling experience. Since, he has definitely made a name for himself in the industry.

It is not every day that you walk down the street and come across a creative mind like that of Bryan Barber's. With a strong relationship with the outstanding music group Outkast, the three master minds have put their heads together for years to create visual greatness to complement the music. Having directed numerous (theatrical) music videos for the music group, Barber was also the director of the 2006 film Idlewild.

As always, On The Apple Box is always here to deliver.... and this week I had the opportunity to network with Mr. Barber while he came to speak to some of the young film students in the AUC. With many insightful and motivational words in regards to the film industry, I walked away from our discussion with much excitement and energy to continue in my personal pursuits as a filmmaker/artist. One thing we can all learn from Barber's story is that we all do start somewhere, and he started right here in the AUC, so if he can do it, we can do it. BE Passionate On The Apple Box!

For those of you who have yet to watch the film Idlewild, don't forget to check out the creative genius:

God still has work for you to do BIG BRO

I hope everyone has my boy Stafon Johnson in their prayers. I don't like to go off all the he say she say, so I wont start any myself. At this point I know that Stafon went through a 7 hour surgery and it was successful. TO GOD BE THE GLORY! All I can say is that God is good all the time and all the time God is good. My BIG bro has way more work to do before he leaves this earth, so that couldn't have been the END of him. Stafon even though you're way back home, you're in my prayers bro bro. Stay up and keep ya head up. Always remember....."Without STRUGGLE there is no PROGRESS!!!"-Fredrick Douglass
