One Saturday morning, early 2019, I (Stacey) was down on myself because I wasn’t feeling well and I had a lot of business work planned. I decided that I was going to lay on the couch a little while, decompress, watch something on the t.v. for a while, and hopefully I would feel a little better to begin work later in the morning. As I was scrolling through YouTube, I found something that looked interesting. I watched one episode and before I knew it, I had binged the whole series of “Nine Months After” by TinBridge Productions. I found them on Instagram, started following them and fell in love with their dedication and love of marriage and family.
We were super honored when they reached out to ask if we would be interested in sending them some of our apparel to be used in their next project called “Project 8”. Well, Project 8 is here! We want you all to support this beautiful black owned production company by following their social media and purchasing their latest release. Read more below about this company and what they have to offer.

This is the story of two best friends in their 20s who have known each other since 1st grade. One is on a quest to walk in his purpose while the other is finding it difficult to accept her truth. How will they help each other figure it out? Project 8 drops gems on the pursuit of becoming financially free and deals with the difficulties of breaking free from corporate life. Filmed in the city of Detroit in 2019. This is the Director’s (David Tinsley) first project shot in his native city since returning home from Southern California in 2018.
What is your “why”?
To exemplify positive, yet realistic images of Black people. We want to represent the hardworking, everyday underdog who rarely gets accounted for in the media. We aim to tell those stories with truth and integrity.
