Casting several music videos with MegaLarge Entertainment ("Hypnotize" Notorious B.I.G., "To Live and Die in L.A." Tupac) and moving up to No Limit Films as Casting Associate.

ML became the founder of the Motor City International Film Festival, while working on two film projects at the same time. "My goal was to prepare the locals in Detroit for the influx of films that were making there way into the city" says Davis. "I knew Detroit was a viable place to showcase talent, the equipment accessibility and a great backdrop to shoot Hollywood style movies, without going to Canada to portray our own city."
Now in Atlanta M L and DOC Entertainment has brought their expertise to the Metro Atlanta area to help diversify the growing TV and film industry, and plans to do the same for Detroit.
