In 2005, Maurice Lockhart and I saw that there were no professional-quality shows coming out of Urban areas. There was a true need for film/shows that were not demeaning to the people in the inner city. Broadcast Media often showed us as violent criminals and mostly focused on negativity in our urban communities.
It is with this proliferation of negative images being constantly shown, I worked to obtain a Bachelors's degree in Digital Media Arts, to combat and create a more positive and engaging brand of entertainment. We acquired professional video/audio equipment and set forth to make a significant change in urban media with new assets under the media banner "Professional Hood Entertainment."
Professional Hood Entertainment is now an entertainment powerhouse and media force with multiple high-quality films that are official selections in various Film Festivals around the United States. We are flourishing in our mission with each film; which is to entertain with an elevated level of urban media content across all platforms. We cover all aspects of media entertainment such as Video/Audio Production (Pre, Production, Post), Script Development / Consultation, and Visual Arts Design.

Jeff S. Gordon
Co-Founder / Head Writer
As a writer, I am always inspired to create works that both entertain as well as enlighten. A lot of my early influences came from classic literature, a steady diet of Hip-Hop and comic books that fostered boundless creativity. I learned about physical production at Los Angeles City College.
It was during my time at UCLA where I honed and sharpened my writing abilities. I wrote dramatic works that have gone on to become selected at various festivals and writing competitions. I tend to write about flawed or fractured characters who face insurmountable odds while undergoing a transformative arc.
My scripts have received numerous awards and have also been adapted into short films. I continually look to expand my writing by working with industry professionals who also have a deep love for the craft.
