The Life of Anthony Hollie and Lovell Love

Night and Day: The Life of Anthony Hollie and Lovell Love is a documentary about a man who lived two lives. The first part of his life, he terrorized the streets of Baltimore as a stick-up boy named Anthony Hollie. After snitching and entering the witness protection program, he became Lovell Love. For the second half of his life, Lovell Love was responsible for keeping hundreds of inner-city youth in Cincinnati off the streets as a church deacon, school counselor and founder of an award winning performance group. One body, yes, but the two men inside were polar opposites, night and day.

Two trips to the Charm City was all it took to get the necessary interviews and footage captured. Two of Hollie's sons, Jay and Dante, shared their stories on one day and Hollie's ex-girlfriend, Almeta, shared her story on another. The days in between were spent getting footage of the city and thumbing through libraries.

Donate to the film

This entire project is funded by you. All donations have gone directly to the production and promotion of this documentary. Now it's time for post-production. Funds are needed for a video editor; a legal issue arose so, retaining counsel; and a return trip to Cincinnati to get the final interviews completed.

Five interviews were completed in Cincinnati: Antonia, his wife; Lavell, his son; Courtland, his daughter; Reverend Ventus, his pastor; and Angie, his rehab counselor. At least one more trip to Cincinnati is needed to interview members of the Positive Peer Posse and Lovell's closest friend.

"Young brother it's not hip or slick to make a baby and not take care of it, 

You think you're a player, you call yourself a Hustler, not supporting your kids makes you a Buster."
