Press Release

JCTC FILM Premiers DEKA-LOG, New Series Depicting Contemporary Urban Life 
A new anthology web-series by an up and coming, Jersey City-based filmmaker, premiers at Merseles
Studios on August 23 rd when Jersey City Theater Center presents DEKA-LOG: a Finding Me story.
Produced by OmeProTV, the screening will be a first-look at Talks With Myself, the second season of
DEKA-LOG: a Finding Me story. The show will feature the premiere of James and Danielle, and
previews of Truthful Silence and Restitution. The screenings will be followed by an audience Q&A with
Roger Omeus Jr. director and writer of DEKA-LOG and the series cast.

DEKA-LOG: a Finding Me story is an anthology series featuring true life stories about people of color in
contemporary urban America. For previous episodes and other films by Omeus, visit
www.omeprotv.com.

The series depicts individuals who are outside the mainstream and whose stories are rarely told on
network television or commercial streaming services. Not only is each episode of DEKA-LOG a stand-
alone, short-film, the series is multi-genre, ranging from romance to true crime and encompassing a range
of universal themes, such as empowerment, love, justice, betrayal and self-discovery.

Roger Omeus Jr. is a first-generation Haitian American, born in Brooklyn N.Y. His previous films
include Finding Me (2009) and Finding Me:Truth (2011), both produced under his company,
OmeProductions LLC and distributed by TLA Releasing. Omeus has also worked on promotional videos
for Gardein products and directed/edited an infomercial for Montclair State University.

In 2009 his production company, OmeProductions LLC, held a successful Food & Clothing Drive for the
people of Haiti after the Earthquake. He feels the goals of both his films and humanitarian efforts are the
same: to touch the hearts of people in a way that invokes action, or as he says, “To be a force of change in
the world through artist creation and development.”

To have his new series to premier at Merseles Studios is a dream come true for this Jersey City-based
filmmaker. “I am really excited to showcase my new series,” says Omeus. “When you are in the midst of
production it’s easy to feel isolated because you are in the middle of creating something and unaware of
how the audience will react or feel about your work. Now it’s show time!”

JCTC Films, the film division of JCTC, presents thought-provoking movies of artistic excellence by up-
and-coming filmmakers. “What excites us about Roger’s films is that he asks questions about the realities
of life for people of color,” says Olga Levina, Artistic Director, JCTC. “As part of the discussion
following the screening, we want to raise awareness about the obstacles filmmakers from minority communities face. JCTC Films presents work by filmmakers whose stories challenge the status quo and create a new and much needed conversation.”
