Meet Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert:
Teyana "Spike Tey" Taylor's perspective of film is far beyond the expertise of being only in front of the lens.
The entrepreneur mindset of Harlem-born singer, dancer, actress and choreographer has produced a career with her own authoritative order.
She executive produced her #1 charting RnB Billboard album, The Album, and served as creative director and choreographer to several sold out tours.
She also launched a MAC Cosmetics line curated and designed by herself. Teyana has choreographed for Beyonce and turned Kanye West's Fade into a viral sensation.
Her talent behind the lens also awarded her BET's 2020 Video Director of the Year.
Taylor has since launched her all-female production company, The Aunties Inc. to help artists like herself find their full creative potential.
The Aunties Inc. has already produced and directed for the likes of Wu-Tang, T.I., Meg Thee Stallion, Big Sean, Macy Gray, Iman, Monica, and more.
Teyana is also credited in film and television for her lead roles in Hit The Floor, Star, Honey 4 and Coming 2 America, among others.
Taylor's main contribution in the industry is to produce work that is authentic and shift the narrative of being a traditional artist and filmmaker.
Iman Shumpert is a father, rapper, producer, entrepreneur, actor and NBA basketball player.
Iman became a fan favourite in New York with his gritty defensive play and high top fade haircut, reminiscent of past Knicks players.
He was drafted #17 by the New York Knicks in 2011 and played four seasons for the team.
He went on to win an NBA Championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers and played for the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets.
Known by music fans as Iman, he continues to work on various musical projects and build his record label, A Sinner's Peace.
He appeared in the BET show Twenties.
Fashion and design is how Iman expressed his creativity while growing up outside of Chicago in Oak Park, Illinois in the 1990s.
He has now grown from wearing and modeling clothes to designing his own clothing brand called Centerpiece.
Iman wants people to be inspired to become the centerpiece of their family and their own life.

JonBenet Ramsey: What Really Happened?
Investigation Discovery (DStv 171 / StarSat 223)
Documentary, True Crime, Mystery
Shortly after Christmas in 1996, a six-year old beauty queen is mysteriously killed in her idyllic home while her family slept upstairs.
This crime continues to captivate the nation 25 years later, with its myriad of false leads, mountain of mishandled evidence and barrage of shocking accusations.
Now, for the first time ever, exclusive new information comes to light in one of modern history's most perplexing cold cases.
This feature-length documentary explores the iconic JonBenet Ramsey case with a fresh perspective.
For the first time, you will be able to hear the previously unreleased audio diaries of Lou Smit, famed Colorado Springs homicide detective who was coaxed from retirement to try and bring some clarity to the chaos surrounding this case.
Lou tests alternate theories often asking the questions that the Boulder police department had not.
Was there an intruder? Was all the DNA identified? Could the killer still be at large?
Through these audio tapes, you hear how Smit meticulously tested each piece of evidence, debunked erroneous theories and uncovered new information that drove the case in a completely new direction.
The body of the six-year-old was found in the basement of her Colorado home on December 26th, 1996.
Police immediately suspected her parents John and Patsy Ramsey of the murder, and the press soon began to follow their lead.
But after reviewing the evidence, Smit thought there could be more to the story than the public was led to believe, and he recorded his investigation from day one.
Now, we will hear from Lou Smit's son and daughter, his investigative team, as well as members of the Ramsey family including John Ramsey and his son John Andrew, as they reflect on what really happened during those early days of the investigation - a case that fascinates a nation more than two decades later.
The Vertigo Years
Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
Documentary Series, History, Science
This three-part documentary series tells the story of the period between 1900 and 1914, not as a sepia-tinted prelude to catastrophe, but as a time of phenomenal energy and rapid transformation.
A social, creative and scientific explosion that would define the horizons of life in the West up to our day.
Throughout the series, particular attention is paid to similarities, parallels and differences between then and now.
Rather than nostalgically evoking Merchant-Ivory costumes, The Vertigo Years shows how industrialisation and urbanisation created new realities and transformed societies with its burgeoning urban centres and mass media and mass sports events, its feminism, nuclear physics, the theory of relativity, abstract art, consumer culture, mass travel and economic globalisation.
Within less than a generation the world had been changed for good.
