Today, Otessa went to a filmmaker’s luncheon at the DC Film Office and was personally congratulated by DC Mayor Vincent Gray for her work with “Orange Juice in Bishop’s Garden” and being “a shining example of the incredible talent [DC] has to offer.”
OJBG was shot entirely on location and brought to life teen experience during the 90s in the nation’s capitol. Otessa has been committed to cultivating DC’s creative culture. She’s a DC-native with a local production company, 20/20 Productions, which assists, produces, and distributes web series and new media productions. She also recently arranged for the 1st Annaul DC WebFest, the first web series screening at Filmfest DC, and continues to actively reach out and promote local filmmakers and creatives. She’s used all local actors and her shows, OJBG and Secret Project, highlight the amazing, hidden, and unknown parts of the city.
Wish her congratulations and send her all your OJBG love on Facebook and Twitter Girl power!
