In honor of Black History month, this week I thought it would be fitting to shine a light on an incredibly inspiring black filmmaker. This incredible woman is a powerhouse that is doing amazing things!
When we talk about history, we look to the past which is very important, but I am also interested in shining a spotlight on folks that I feel are making history or are on the brink of making history in big and in small ways.
The amazing lady that I had the pleasure of interviewing this week, is not only a talented filmmaker but the creator of the Make a Film Foundation, the Commercial Diversity Directors Program and so much more. I bring to you...Tamika Lamison!
In this episode we discuss everything from the state of black projects in Hollywood today, Creating your own content, Diversity and representation in film and the value of screenwriting and directing contests/programs.
