Rojé Augustin started Breaknight Films while working as a producer for ABC News in New York. She was moonlighting in the independent film scene and was hired as an assistant director on a small budget film called False Start. That led to her co-producing the picture and Breaknight Films was born! Following that, she wrote several screenplays, one of which was an adaptation of a compelling true life story titled Fort-Dimanche Fort-la-Mort.
At Breaknight Films we are passionate about projects that shatter commonly held stereotypes. We aim to build a creative hothouse where original projects involving marginalised characters and fresh ideas are born and bred for mass media. To this end, Breaknight Films has developed projects across several formats, including documentary, drama, podcasts and web series.
We believe that storytelling is the most effective tool for education, enlightenment, and entertainment. At the end of the day we love a good story. It’s all about the story with Breaknight, the story is everything!
