Award-winning actor Stevens becomes award-winning filmmaker with his win at the International Film Festival Manhattan for his autobiographical documentary “Mr. Real 2 Reel”; Eye on Entertainment won a 2013 EOTM Award for segments featuring Stevens and Mark Savage.

Manhattan, NY, November 11, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Micaal Stevens won “Best Short” Honorable Mention at the International Film Festival Manhattan in October 2013 for his documentary “Mr. Real 2 Reel”. Stevens has been in multiple national commercials, movies, award-winning films and was awarded The Gold Medal of Excellence at The Park City Film and Music Festival in Utah for his role in the short film “Lifted”.

Synopsis of “Mr. Real 2 Reel”:
In 1997, a four-time felon was released from South Carolina's most notorious super maximum prison. He walked out of those gates looking forward, determined to never go back again. He quickly fell, however, into the only world he had ever known, which was the business of selling drugs. But this time, he decided he no longer would sell cocaine, crack and guns. He instead turned to the black market and marijuana business for profit. But he believes that God had other plans and led him to the open call for Hype Williams’ feature film "Belly," which he booked. That film introduced him to the movie world and has led him to become an award-winning actor and filmmaker.
