Prince Sprauve, CEO of Quiet on Set Productions, is an independent film director and founder of Revolution Studios, Inc. D/B/A Told By Us Productions (a not-for-profit since 2013). Told By Us is a youth-centered program that fosters creative expression and serves as a safe haven where at-risk students come to express themselves in creative ways and escape negative influences.
Because of Prince Sprauve’s success and dedication to his program, he went on to direct and produce the full-length movie, Fast Life. The film premiered at Proctors in 2013, and involved the collaboration of 150 students, community organizations, and volunteers. Fast Life depicts the circumstances that attract teens to a life of violent crime.
Cradle was the next project Told By Us undertook, under the direction of Prince Sprauve. Following in the footsteps of Fast Life,” Told By Us once again offered a unique tool for captivating Schenectady’s youth; this time by exposing the current epidemic of teenage pregnancy in Schenectady.
