Damon P. Saleem as Mack
Next Tuesday - Directed by Mike Dennis (WYBE/Phila - BET Jazz)

I had a wonderful experience of reconnecting with my good friend Mike who was a graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts who has experience in film documentaries, videos and short stories. One of his successful projects was a short film entitled "Next Tuesday". In this film, I played the lead character named Mack. The story evolves around Mack and his thirteen year old son Aundra. As they were getting to know one another for the first time since Aundra was born, the role gave me an opportunity to develop my skills as an actor even more.

The film appeared in several film festivals and premiered on the local WYBE station as a part of the Philadelphia film series. The movie aired throughout the entire summer of 2006 on the BET Jazz channel as a part of its best short film series. The title track for Next Tuesday was performed by John Legend who recently won a Grammy Award for the song.

This was a special project to be a part of on many levels. It was written and directed by Mike Dennis. Mike and I met at NYU and we share a similar vision in regards to cinema. The subject matter was important. The story a bout a young father reconnecting with his son. This really attracted me to the script. I expect more good things to happen for this film.
