The follow up to the successful black gay indie hit film Finding Me is currently in production in New York City. Recently director and creator Roger Omeus(pictured below) took some time out of his busy schedule to chat with loldarian.com as well as share some of the first promo images from the sequel.

Omeus is promising fans who fell in love with main characters Faybien (Ray Martell Moore) and Lonnie (Derrick L. Briggs) even more drama and romance than they experienced the first time around.

According to Omeus fans should expect to see the truth revealed for a lot of the Finding Me characters. "Faybien's life will be turned upside down", he says. Also I know everyone fell in love with Lonnie in the original, but expect to see him in a different light.

Consumers of black gay films and television shows have often fallen in love with new projects only to see them disappear after only a short time on the scene, we've seen this happen with Noah's Arc and more recently The DL Chronicles. So it's an achievement that Finding Me is returning.

"Finding Me's ending left the door open to explore the lives of Faybien, Greg and Amera in more depth, says Omeus referring to the characters in the film. I often get asked, " Are we going to see what happens to Faybien next?" The other famous question is, "Will Lonnie and Faybien get back to together?" All of these questions will be answered in Finding Me: Truth.

Take a sneak peek at the cast on set of the new sequel Finding Me:Truth in the video below and follow the cast and crew from production to opening night on the Finding Me blog.

Good. This story needs to be continued. Unlike most of the mainstream white gay films, I actually enjoyed this one.

Hopefully this movie will have a better flow. The 1st 30-40 min of the movie was terribly acted and bad lighting/editing and then finally got a lot better at the end.

So I hope he continues the sequel way he ended the prior movie. I hope he also learned some editing and gets better lighting.

Great news for all of us! I really enjoyed this movie and guys if you haven't made a movie or contributed to one please don't judge so harshly. I think it was great even with the flaws and all.

Cool! I really enjoyed the first film, even if I thought the lead character was not as good of an actor as the others...still, that
did not stop me from enjoying it.
We have so few shows/movies where
our stories are told, so we should support the few that do roll around. Especially when they are
as entertaining as Finding Me, was.
I wish them much success with this
