Layton Blaylock is an award-winning filmmaker, director, director of photography, and a founding partner in Inferno Films. His feature documentary Art From the Streets was accepted at over 30 film festivals around the world, winning ten awards, including 5 for Best Documentary.  Art From the Streets was another passion project about an art program for homeless people. The plight of the homeless is a subject near and dear to Layton’s heart, and he has found a subject with Community First! Village that he hopes can make a real impact on our cities and towns across the country by helping the homeless get off the streets and transform their lives. However, what Community First, A Home for the Homeless will show is that it takes more than just housing, it takes a community.
