Writer/Director MASON RICHARDS was born in Guyana, South America and  emigrated to Brooklyn, New York with his family at age 7. Mason has a B.A. in English: Intellectual History and a B.S. in Human & Organizational Development from Vanderbilt University. Mason worked as a Broadcast Associate at CBS News in NYC, and in International Sales & Marketing at Paramount Pictures in Los Angeles before deciding to pursue his Masters degree in Filmmaking as a way to tell stories in Hollywood  that often get overlooked. 

“The Seawall” tells a story of family and migration. The short film was an official selection for the Cannes Film Festival-Court Mertrage (2011), the Havana International Film Festival in Cuba (2014), and has screened at festivals in the UK, Toronto, and throughout Caribbean.
