Ep 083 Behind Closed Doors with Tamika and Stormy Archie

Jun 17, 2020

Tamika and Stormy Archie, are the creators, writers, directors, producers and film crew for of a new film series song on the On Channel called “Behind Closed Doors”.

The amazing thing is that neither one of them knew anything about filmmaking. They learn it all from watching YouTube videos.

Behind Closed Door weaves the dramatic stories of 4 characters struggling with the real-life issues of domestic & sexual abuse, mental illness, and drug addiction. The stories they tell come for the most part from what they witnessed and experienced as children.

it is a story of those who suffer in silence and how that suffering remains long after the trauma is done. The first season of “Behind Closed Doors” had over 14,000 views within the first 2 weeks. It’s now one of the ON network’s most popular streamed series.

when i look at the world today and i see what has come out from behind closed doors, a film series’s like this is even more important than ever.
