As the Co-Owner of Industry Unlocked, Luc Stephen is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the film industry. Born in Haiti and raised in Boston, Luc now resides in Jamaica Queens. This Haitian-American became intrigued with the film & television industry after being featured in a well-known BET series entitled, “American Gangster”. “Being featured in the American Gangster series and then becoming a consultant made me extremely intrigued with the behind-the-scenes aspect of the film & television industry”, states Stephen. “Television Executive, Curtis Scoon, taught me a lot about the industry in a short period of time”. Reruns of “American Gangster” are now being aired History and A&E channels.
“I love to write”, states Luc who is the co-creator of the film series, “Prey Before You Eat”.

With high viewership numbers within a short period of time, Luc and his partner Doc, then moved forward to produce Part II of this film series, which premiered in October 2016 reaching over (300k) views. Notables, RIP Michaels and Mimi Faust of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” are also featured in Part II of the series. When asked why he and his partner chose to do a film series instead of the ever popular web series, Luc states, “We watched “Respect Life” and “Money & Violence”. We loved them; however, we wanted to do something different, thus our film series, “Prey Before You Eat” which tells the story of two females who lived a life of crime”.
Luc Stephen states his film influences as Spike Lee, Tyler Perry, John Singleton, F. Gary Gray, Ice Cube, and Will Packer.
Another past time of Luc’s, is promotion.

In his spare time, Stephen loves to exercise, try different foods, and travel. In his hometown, he also enjoys feeding the homeless and completing volunteer work in his community of Jamaica, Queens (NYC).
When asked where fans can expect to see Luc five years from now, he states, “Within that time frame, I see myself as an Award-winning Film Executive with project on major networks and big screens”.
At the end of 2017, Luc’s company, Industry Unlocked, won several awards during the First Annual Webseries Awards at New York University and his film, “CIRCLES”, a short film based on HIV/AIDS, was entered into the Newark International Film Festival and The Hip-Hop Film Festival.
Circles is nominated for best short film in the 2018 Urban Web Series Awards.

Established in 2014, partners Luc R. Stephen and Dashamaine “Doc” Doctor created Industry Unlocked. Doc, a former hip-hop engineer and recording artist, just naturally transitioned into film. “I always had a passion for cameras to shoot, but I never took it seriously until now”.
Luc, the owner of a soul food restaurant, luxury transportation company, and concert promoter always had an interest in film & television as well. Therefore, the like minds created Industry Unlocked and the rest is history.

The film’s first installment was released spring of 2016.
In March of 2017, the two have also written and produced their first Award Winning Short Film, CIRCLES. It is a twenty minute HIV/AIDS awareness film that educates viewers on ways the virus can be contracted coupled with an unexpected twist as two people begin their early stages of dating.

This is a documentary created to acknowledge Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October) and to spread the statistics and to encourage and inspire anyone living in an abusive situation.
SOME OF THIER WORK WITH MUSIC VIDEOS INCLUDE :
As we head into 2018, the Industry Unlocked will continue to be the leading production company for all things “urban”. This Queens based company is looking to produce well over five concepts within the next year.
According to Zamor motivation behind his “ My Element” EP came as a means to change the conversation around Hip Hop culture, making a conscious effort to shy away from the typical violent, “Drill” and “ Trap” tones prevalent in today music and instead focused on self-elevation and the process of gaining and giving respect. The 7-month long creation process was one Zamor took pride in thanking producers such as Mad real, ShankzBeatz and Mr.Wolf for playing a major a part in his formative process, by producing and mixing the original beats that have allowed him to fully express his emotions and display is sheer talent.
In addition throughout the project, Zamor makes a point to feature an array of other fellow Queens NY underground artist such as 2gz leel, Jussvon, HP all of which share his love for the culture and passion of the craft. this Ep is definitely on track to making Zamor a house hold name
Fun records never go out of style, especially when they have a visual that’s even better. Shot by Brian Hart, Mr.PB and his crew give some major Ferris Bueller vibes as they spend their day dodging some crazy dude who was simply trying to interrupt their vibe.
Mr. PB is a rap artist from Clinton, Maryland but he prefers to call it “Tikiland”. His latest single “On My Grind” is depiction of everyday life. PB feels that everybody should be on their grind or hustle working towards the next level in life. Mr. PB has been rapping all his life. He started to take rap serious after High School. With the influences like Wiz Khalifa, J Cole, Notorious B.I.G and Rihanna PB has created his own style that conforms to any instrumental.

Your first attempt at anything is a little rocky but when you prepare endlessly sometimes your first attempt can make a great impression.
Kada Bae knows all about preparation and making a great first impression as he releases his debut project “In Due Time”. Working wit some of the hottest up and coming producers and knowing how to use his distinctive voice to finesse tracks made this 12-track debut well worth the wait.
Charlotte, NC native Kada, born Curtis Lee made the best out of his situation as a kid in the hood and put his heart into sports, seeing it as a way to make it out. His plans to make it out were halted after being arrested at the age of 16, that’s where his love of music was born.
Kada is dropping his first single “On Me” from the project with visuals soon to follow. To keep up with Kada visit his website IAmKadaBae.com
After setting the past 6 or so months ablaze with visuals from his debut album ‘Return Of The Gap’; Madison Jay unleashes yet another visual for his recently released ’98 Freestyle!
Over the classic 1998 tracks “It’s Alright” from Jigga and “Blackout” from the Darkman X County! sets the booth on fire with bars like “I hear a lot of we(oui) but I ain’t French tho/D hop up out of the Chamberz like I’m French Tho” and “do they even fu*king serve soup on ‘ya plane/get in ‘ya lane, my cousin was slain/we still feel the pain, HUH”!
