"I worked relentlessly; after trying many different businesses and working a second job, Drama and Arts Academy and Sis to Sis Productions was birthed."
Producer, Director, and Author Hazel Simpson continues to claim her spot among the elite women in film and media in the emerging southern capital of entertainment, Atlanta, Georgia. Simpson among other businesswomen have chosen to persevere, despite odds against them in a male dominated industry. Coming off the success of her recent film, “Sisters and the Shrink,” critics and film enthusiasts are beginning to take interest into this budding woman in film. “Sisters and the Shrink” is based on the real-life story of six ordinary women and their hired shrink to assist with repairing their broken relationships, friendships, and family ties. The captivating release has garnished a new accolade for Simpson as Silver Award Winner of the 2019 International Independent Film Awards for the film “Sisters and the Shrink.” Since childhood, Simpson had a passion to work in film and become an everyday storyteller. Her passion remains daily to empower and enlighten both adults and children. Due to this passion for all humankind, Simpson founded the I AM Awards which highlights and uplifts women of the community for their hard work and dedication. The early part of Simpson’s career began working in the arts on the exclusive Broadway stage in musicals. Simpson accredits her initial dabbing in the arts for her second love of educating youth about the arts. Shortly after departing from her Broadway briefing, Simpson decided to launch an art based educational childcare facility named Drama and Arts Academy based in Atlanta, Georgia. Taking a swift step towards releasing a new film, starring some notable actors in film, Simpson shows no signs of slowing down soon. The resilience and dedication of Simpson is forever constant and contributes all her success to her family and faith in God.
