Byline + mention in Atlanta Post article on black film and TV producers working online

28 Jul

Instead of waiting for Hollywood’s permission — and dollars — black film and TV producers are giving themselves the green light to produce their own online series.

Black Filmmakers & TV Producers Taking Creative Control Through the WebThe Atlanta Post* article “Black Filmmakers and Producers Use the Web to Take Control,” penned by yours truly, takes an eye-opening look at African-American web series and digital content producers.

Al Thompson; Korey Coleman; Issa Rae; Pete Chatmon and Hannelore Williams; Brown Paper Dolls and Idris Elba, and many more are highlighted, along with the Black Women’s Entertainment Network online channel and media studies expert Aymar Jean Christian. There’s also a mention of me, writer/director Olu Gittens and Oh Gee Productions’ web series CHOICES.  Black digital producers are making moves on the web.

Great piece, if I do say so myself!
