“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Who Are We?
ArieCan Productions was founded in 2017 by Larry Harris and Leonard Martin, both People of Color who decided that the best way to create quality content that spoke to their audience was to do it themselves. Together they created Chapter 2 'The Web Series', available online and from streaming services. Based in Baltimore, ArieCan creates film and TV productions.
"It starts with a dream"
Leonard says, “Baltimore has a wealth of talent and potential. We were disappointed at how little recognition there was. So we decided to create Chapter 2 'The Web Series'”.
Larry continues, “It was a huge adventure – we didn't know what we were doing when we started, but then we 'learned-by-doing' and it has become a great success. It's not just an LGBTQ series, but a crossover drama that appeals to a wide audience, not just gay people.”
The pair had to struggle to get the series made, and it is a testament to their drive and enthusiasm that this TV show exists.
What Does ArieCan Symbolize?
The company's name is based on the founders' astrological signs: Larry is an Aries; Leonard is a Cancer and together they came up with the name ArieCan Productions. The slogan “It starts with a dream” became their way of life.
ArieCan Productions has been creating a great buzz in 2020 with articles written about the company on such notable sites like Yahoo! News, The NY Weekly, Google News, Kivo Daily, and many other news outlets.
