Open City Mixtape is a collection of fictional and documentary tales about inner-city life, as seen through the eyes of filmmaker A.V. Rockwell.
Bravely venturing out and often placing themselves in risky situations, director A.V. Rockwell and producer Amy Collado have traveled the streets of New York for over two years, in search of fresh and unique tales about city life.
As a Queens-bred New Yorker born of Jamaican descent, A.V. finds inspiration from the diverse array of influences around her. After refining her craft as a filmmaker at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, A.V. continues to pursue greater creative heights in the world of cinema. For more work by A.V.

Amy is a curator and philanthropist born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. After majoring in Fashion Design at The Art Institute of New York City, she decided her calling for philanthropy was much stronger, therefore leading to the formation of the not-for-profit charity Fly Clothes for Good Grades in 2011. Open City Mixtape is her first venture in the world of filmmaking.
