WHO IS Acero Twins PRODUCTIONS?
We're Writers, Producers, Director's, Actors, Singers and Former RCA/BMG Artists
IS ACERO TWIN PRODUCTIONS JUST THE TWO OF YOU?
No way. We have an amazing team we work together and we all work on our own as well. Primarily the writing is done by us, once it's ready to go, production begins. Marcel Wade has been our Lifeline lately as he is current Director/ Unit Director and we just brought on a two new writers and one Editor in Chief for the next spin off shows.
HOW DID SUNDAY MORNINGS COME TO LIFE?
This version you see is not the entire script. Initially Sunday Mornings was meant to be a Ten minute concept sizzle idea to pitch a series, (or Musical). Because we didn't film the entire script, we filmed pick-up shots to give it a finishing touch so we could move on to the next project. that long sizzle is the version you see today. One day, God willing, we'll have the opportunity to showcase the entire script (series or play).
The story was easy to write as it is loosely based on true life events. After the script was complete we called one of the smartest and creative women we know, a director and long time friend, Inda Reid. We only sent her the first few scenes. She called us back immediately and said "YES"! She was crying laughing and loved the dark undertone. Inda is smart, talented and we knew she would be a perfect fit for the project. Inda knew many of the characters in the story. Her excitement and love for the project sealed the deal. We trust Inda and know her work. She's extremely creative and we knew she would just 'get us'.
WAS IT EASY MOVING FORWARD WITH THE PROJECT?
I wouldn't say that. We kind of didn't think about it. First we called a very good actor friend of ours Quincy Bonds. He knew the story and script and told us not to be afraid. He said who cares who thinks you both are crazy, cause you are! LOL :) He also said "I bet if you asked for help, you both will get it". It was a blessing to have encouraging people around us.
WHY WOULD YOU BE AFRAID?
Well, Sunday is the name of the main character. So people immediately think this is about going to church. Well... it's about LIFE, real life. The characters do go to church, but that doesn't mean by any means the characters are sweet or perfect. The world can be very judgemental at times and exposing the funny, good, bad, very bad heartache in your life can be a scary thing. (FYI... Our Pastors were NEVER womanizers. Remember this is "loosely based" and we we're able to have fun with some of the characters!
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
We called a few actor friends that we knew, posted on-line casting calls and we even called our agent for some talent that would be interested. Talent had to be able to act, sing and dance. Some of the actors we knew and some we didn't but they we're AMAZING! Amazing not just as actors and local talent but as people also. We fell in love with everyone. They really brought this project to life. We're so grateful.
We're not new the to Industry and aren't afraid of hard work to follow our passions and calling. So grateful to know and meet so many wonderful people along this journey.

Oh... we've had some fun seeing the world, but lets start here. Our First girl group consisting of two sets of twins. We eventually split and branched off into another Girl Group to spread our wings even more.
We joined another five girl group called ROXXI, who toured Europe and opened for a rock band called "Garbage" & also opened for Destiny's Child. The plan then, was, to move to Europe and release our music overseas. Kendra and Baby eventually leave the group and then...
The five Gal band eventually became three as Maria, Michelle, Inda (Sunday Mornings Director) ventured off with Alternative music as "Juliette". Thus, that is how we have this unbreakable bond with these ladies. Guess what... We have a script about this journey too.
