“In the past few years, it seems a floodgate has opened, releasing a deluge of tremendously successful media that centers the Black experience. “Get Out,” “Black Panther,” and HBO’s “Watchmen” are just some of the big-budget prestige projects that have drawn huge audiences and dominated the cultural conversation. The New Yorker Radio Hour looks at this moment in Black entertainment and investigates the industry forces behind it in a special episode, produced by Ngofeen Mputubwele. Barry Jenkins, the director of “Moonlight,” talks about how Barack Obama’s Presidency opened doors for Black creators. A film scholar recounts the history of the complicated relationship between studios and Black audiences. And the actor Sheryl Lee Ralph looks at what’s changed in Hollywood in the decades since her first film role, opposite Sidney Poitier” Tap the link in our stories to read this @newyorkermag story about how Black creators and audiences have bailed out the industry time and time again.

🚨 Repost 🚨 @bad_robot + The Black List (@theblcklst) are thrilled to announce their partnership to provide 500 writers from historically underrepresented communities with blcklst.com access! Eligible writers will receive a free month of hosting + a free script evaluation.

@bad_robot will work with several community organizations to distribute 400 fee waivers directly to writers:
@aitaf
Barcid Foundation

@the_blackhouse
@goldhouseco
@thelatinxhouse
@outfest
@respecttheability
@womeninfilm

Additionally, The Black List will also distribute 100 fee waivers to writers from underrepresented communities who are already a part of the blcklst.com ecosystem - these writers will be contacted privately and receive their fee waivers directly from The Black List.

Interested writers who qualify as being a part of an underrepresented community per WGA guidelines are encouraged to contact a partner organization for a waiver; distribution will be entirely up to each organization’s discretion. Please, be thoughtful when contacting partners.

This new program hopes to provide writers with access, opportunities, and feedback for their original work that they may not otherwise be able to acquire. For more info, check out the link http://blcklst.com/help/article/662

Thank you to @bad_robot for partnering with us on this amazing project for writers!

“ @thandienewton finally gets a role she can really sink her teeth into with God’s Country, a disturbing, unusually class-and-race-conscious modern Western that paints a pretty despairing view of human relations in red state America. Methodically paced and dominated by negative emotions all around, director/co-writer Julian Higgins takes his own sweet time exploring the troubling, unfriendly mindsets on both sides of the fence. Fences, in fact, would have been a very apt title for this quietly simmering study of people who bring little but ill-will to the table” - @deadline #sundance #sundance2022

In the @morereginahall starrer, @indiewire punctuates the powerful #Sundance2022 entrant here: A twisting tale that combines elements of “Candyman,” “The Shining” and “Get Out,” Mariama Diallo’s “Master” isn’t the kind of traumatic horror film that interrogates racism solely as a fright in itself. Diallo is too smart for that. This mesmerizing freak out, a psychologically brutal witch and ghost story, pulls in viewers with smart writing, and even more brilliant performances. It explicates colorism, racial passing, micro-aggressions, and the crushing pressures of Black Excellence not as history-teaching, example-making cudgels, but as illnesses that live and breathe beneath and above the surface of America” learn about why Regina took on this role and working with @mariama by checking out her #Blackhouse panel from last weekend using the link in our bio and stories.

Congratulations to @participant’s feature documentary #Descendant, on winning the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award: Creative Vision at @sundanceorg

Higher Ground, President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s production company, will present the film alongside Netflix. Watch our panel with the filmmakers including director Margaret Brown and producer @questlove using the link in our bio.

“Descendant, from director Margaret Brown, follows members of Africatown, a small community in Alabama, as they share their personal stories and community history as descendants of the Clotilda, the last known slave ship to illegally transport human beings as cargo from Africa to America. The ship’s existence, a centuries-old open secret, is confirmed by a team of marine archeologists. The film explores implications of the Clotilda’s discovery for the descendants, who grapple with their heritage while claiming the power to shape their own destinies” - @deadline #sundance #sundance

“Based on a true story, Brian Brown-Easley (Boyega) was a former Marine who stopped receiving disability checks after being rerouted by the VA to pay off another debt (an error on their part that is addressed later in the film). Brown-Easley, on the brink of homelessness and struggling to return to civilian life, enters a bank and claims he has a bomb to its remaining two employees, Estel Valerie (Nicole Beharie) and Rosa Diaz (Selenis Leyva). While he could’ve asked for the bank to give him what the VA owes him — $892 — Brown-Easley wants to have an audience with the media so that he can explain the mistreatment of a department that should have helped him.” - @screenrant @johnboyega

Hello, my name is Booker Edwards, I am a Professor of Practice in the Creative Media Industries Institute at Georgia State University and we are currently looking to hire a Professor of Practice in Media Producing to start in the Fall 22 semester. The position description and how to apply are below. PROFESSOR OF PRACTICE in MEDIA PRODUCING The Creative Media Industries Institute (CMII) at Georgia State University in Atlanta invites applications for a Professor of Practice position in Media Producing, to start in August 2022 pending final budget approval. We seek an individual with a nationally recognized record of achievement in the media industries, broadly defined (e.g., the candidate might bring experience as executive producer with expertise in production finance/logistics, cross platform content creation, television, streaming, etc.) QUALIFICATIONS: Position requires a minimum of 15 years of industry experience. Other advanced academic credentials are not required, given industry experience, though we welcome candidates who hold advanced degrees in a creative or media field. Applicants must have a thorough understanding of the creative and production pipeline in their sector of experience. Preference will be given to candidates who have classroom teaching or corporate training experience and a demonstrated passion for working with undergraduate and graduate students with technology interests. Candidates with a high degree of familiarity with some of the leading content creation software packages and production finance will be preferred. DUTIES: The main duties include (1) a priority on working with colleagues to attract industrial collaborations and revenue-generating work to the Institute; (2) teaching in area of experience. Because of the expectation that Professors of Practice will remain engaged with content creation industries, CMII requires them to engage in commercially viable projects that include student participation, projects managed by the Institute Executive Director. Other potential work might include the supervision of student led projects, industry collaborations connected to the business of production and production pipelines, and active involvement in ongoing CMII administrative work. Professors of Practice at Georgia State University connect nonprofit or corporate practitioners and accomplished executives to the more traditional academic work of a Research 1 university, including classroom instruction. This configuration enables CMII to attract exceptionally strong teachers and administrators who often bring extensive professional experience in the media and content creation industries, and to mentor new colleagues into classroom and student mentoring excellence. CMII operates an advanced technology content creation center and offers undergraduate bachelor (BA/BS) degree programs in Game Design & Development and a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) in Media Entrepreneurship, as well as an MFA concentration in Virtual Production launching in Fall 2022. CMII employs research and teaching faculty, as well as industry-experienced Professors of Practice. CMII is an interdisciplinary unit in the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of the Arts, created to develop 21st century storytellers prepared for work in the media and arts industries, to mentor students interested in entrepreneurship, and to develop research-connected industry partnerships.

The university is proud to enroll and graduate one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation. CMII is committed to serving this student body and advancing innovative research by building a diverse faculty. Full time employees enjoy benefits such as: retirement savings plans with matching funds, health insurance options (a variety of medical, dental, and vision plans), life insurance and other insurance options, as well as savings accounts (health; flexible; transportation), and an EAP.

Hello, my name is Booker Edwards, I am a Professor of Practice in the Creative Media Industries Institute at Georgia State University and we are currently looking to hire a Professor of Practice in Virtual Production/Visual Effects to start in the Fall 22 semester. The position description and how to apply are below. PROFESSOR OF PRACTICE in VIRTUAL PRODUCTION/VISUAL EFFECTS The Creative Media Industries Institute (CMII) at Georgia State University in Atlanta invites applications for a Professor of Practice in Virtual Production and Visual Effects to start in August 2022. We seek an individual with a thorough understanding and record of achievement in virtual production, broadly defined (e.g., experience in emerging technology pipelines, potentially including a close working knowledge of software specific to virtual production pipelines in augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), LED technology, motion and volumetric capture, visual effects, game engine VFX, previsualization, and animation). QUALIFICATIONS: Position requires a minimum of 10 years of broader industry experience with at least 5 years of that to be specifically in virtual production. Other advanced academic credentials are not required, given industry experience, though we welcome candidates who hold advanced degrees in a creative or media field. Applicants must therefore have a thorough understanding of the creative and production pipeline in their sector of experience. For example, a candidate able to problem-solve where gaming platforms (e.g., Unreal and Unity) must be integrated with VFX and LED screen technologies, would receive preference. DUTIES: The main duties include (1) a priority on working with colleagues to attract industrial collaborations and revenue-generating work to the Institute; (2) teaching in area of experience. Because of the expectation that Professors of Practice will remain engaged with content creation industries, CMII requires them to engage in commercially viable projects that include student participation, projects managed by the Institute Executive Director.

Professors of Practice at Georgia State University connect nonprofit or corporate practitioners and accomplished executives to the more traditional academic work of a Research 1 university, including classroom instruction. Professors of Practice hired through the mechanism of a national search may be annually renewed in perpetuity given effective performance and are eligible for annual merit pay raises as made available by the Georgia Assembly and the university. This configuration enables CMII to attract exceptionally strong teachers and administrators who often bring extensive professional experience in the media and content creation industries, and to mentor new colleagues into classroom and student mentoring excellence.

CMII is an interdisciplinary unit in the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of the Arts, created to develop 21st century storytellers prepared for work in the media and arts industries, to mentor students interested in entrepreneurship, and to develop research-connected industry partnerships. As you are required to stay active in the industry, all Professors of Practice are required to engage in commercially viable projects that include student participation upon the direction of the Executive Director.
