There Is No Justice Without Disability

On November 7th and 8th, Ebonee Noel of CBS' FBI and Barbara Matos, VP, Diversity and Inclusion, CBS Corporation were among the participants of this year's PITCHNY.

Industry Leaders join Aspiring Filmmakers, Producers and Writers for Two Days of Learning and Networking at Legendary 30 Rockefeller Plaza

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the fourth installment of PITCHNY℠, a two-day workshop to provide aspiring young filmmakers, producers and writers from across New York State with resources and in-person mentorship from entertainment industry leaders to advance their careers. The event, hosted by the Governor's Office of Motion Picture & Television Development and NBCUniversal in collaboration with Tribeca Film Institute, is the most recent state initiative to promote the inclusion of diverse voices across the entertainment industry.

"New York's greatest strength is our diversity, and we want to break down barriers to help ensure people from different backgrounds have a seat at the table in the film and television industry," Governor Cuomo said. "This event connects a diverse set of aspiring young content creators with the mentors, exposure and resources they need to gain access to the industry, paving the way for new talent and generations of diverse writers, directors, producers and studio executives."

Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa, who spoke at the PITCHNY℠ event, said, "Under Governor Cuomo's leadership, New York State is setting a nation-leading example creating equal opportunity for all, and PITCHNY℠ perfectly encapsulates those efforts. This is an exciting and inspiring event that's opening doors for diverse young filmmakers, producers and writers from across the Empire State to make their unique voices and stories heard through screenplays, scripts and the silver screen."

The Governor's Office of Motion Picture & Television Development works closely with studios and non-profit organizations to cultivate New York's homegrown talent and help build and expand pathways for aspiring content creators. To participate in PITCHNY℠, undergraduate and graduate students and recent alumni interested in careers in the entertainment industry submitted applications and were selected by the Tribeca Film Institute. The 50 finalists hail from areas throughout New York State and represent a combination of public and private universities, including:

Barnard College
Brooklyn College
City College of New York
The College of Saint Rose
Columbia University
CUNY Baruch College
Fashion Institute of Technology
Fordham University
Hofstra University
Hunter College
Ithaca College
LaGuardia Community College
Long Island University Brooklyn
Marist College
The New School
New York University
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Sarah Lawrence College
Schenectady County Community College
St. John's University
SUNY Buffalo State
SUNY Empire State College
SUNY Oswego
SUNY Potsdam
SUNY Purchase
SUNY University at Buffalo
Syracuse University

The first day of the two-day event included a practice pitch workshop led by Tribeca Film Institute and a welcome reception enabling networking between participants and industry veterans. The second day featured informational panels, round table discussions and a one-on-one "speed dating" pitch session with entertainment experts. The event was held within NBCUniversal's legendary headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

Participants were paired with producers, writers, directors, developers and executives from Universal Content Productions, Tangerine Entertainment, America's Rainbow Film Festival, Warner Horizon TV, DeFina Film Productions, Tribeca Film Festival, Topic Studios, Stockade Works, CBS Corporation, Edgeworx Studios, WBTV, HBO, Berlanti Productions, Int'l Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival, Red Crown Productions, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Bushwick Film Festival. Actress Ebonée Noel, who plays Analyst Kristen Chazal on CBS's FBI, also joined to deliver remarks highlighting the importance of diverse content creators in the industry.

In these one-on-one sessions, students practiced their story pitches and received feedback and constructive criticism from industry leaders. The industry representatives simulated real-life pitching situations and gave students an opportunity to share their stories and enhance their pitching skills. These "speed dating" pitching sessions also connected entertainment industry leaders with a rising generation of diverse content creators.

Empire State Development Acting Commissioner and President & CEO-designate Eric Gertler said, "The film and television industry is an important part of our state's economy, and today's PITCHNY℠ event is one of many ways we are expanding the entertainment sector and working with industry professionals to expand pathways and increase opportunities for talented New Yorkers."

New York State continues to lead the nation in the fight for social justice and embracing diversity by passing legislation to ensure LGBTQ rights and marriage equality, welcoming our immigrant community, launching a women's equality agenda and fighting workplace discrimination. PITCHNY℠ builds on Governor Cuomo's legacy of expanding opportunity, increasing diversity, promoting inclusion and standing up for all minority groups in New York State.

New York's $420 million film incentive program is one of the best in the nation. The New York State Governor's Office of Motion Picture & Television Development (MPTV) offers film, television and commercial production and post-production tax credits for qualified expenditures in New York State.

JESUS IS REAL: Jesus is real, the greatest defender of the oppressed to walk earth. Jesus, the Son of God, was there when Father God said "let us make man in our own image". Jesus is real, the greatest liberator of the oppressed, who saved a woman caught in adultery from being stoned to death by double standard religious leaders. Jesus is real, who opened blind eyes, fed the hungry, healed the sick, & was the friend of sinners. Jesus is real, a dark skin Jew, who lived under Roman oppresion, who had hair like wool & skin like bronze. Jesus who lived, died, & rose from the dead knows all about our struggles. Different from the false portrait of Jesus created to enslave Black folk. Jesus is real. For God is always against slavery & oppression. Remember the famous anti slavery quote from God, "let my people go". Jesus is real whose ROOTS include Black folk such a Rahab, Ruth, Bethsheba, & Solomon. MY GENERATION DON'T TURN YOUR BACK ON JESUS!!! DISCOVER WHO JESUS REALLY IS!!! COME TO JESUS!!! Pastor Arthur L. Mackey Jr. Senior Pastor Mount Sinai Baptist Church Cathedral 243 Rev. Dr. A. L. Mackey Sr. Avenue Roosevelt, New York, 11575 [email protected]
God bless you this is Pastor Arthur L. Mackey Jr. Let me take this time to pray for you. Father God in the name of Jesus I ask that you touch us from the top of our heads to the soles of our feet. I ask you Lord that you would lead us, guide us, direct us, and protect us in the mighty name of Jesus. I ask You heavenly Father that You would keep us safe from all hurt, harm, and danger. That you would not let us be to the left or the right, but in the center of your will. God please comfort all who have lost loved ones to this coronavirus crisis. And I asked you God in the midst of this coronavirus crisis that You would bring health, healing, and wholeness into our lives, our homes, and our families where we have been broken battered and bruised in the mighty name of Jesus we do pray. AMEN.

Hello, I read with interest todays article in The Hollywood Reporter saying CBS is looking to have more opportunities for disabled actors. Source: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/cbs-signs-pledge-audition-actors-disabilities-1219640 I am Eddie McGee, a CBS alum and winner of CBS’ Big Brother season one, and I am a disabled actor who stars and produces the new award winning TV pilot Eddie’s. Myself, and the rest of the producers of Eddie’s, feel "The Eye Network" would be the perfect home for our feel good comedy show “where every hour is happy hour and all are welcome”. Eddie's is a single camera comedy series starring myself Eddie McGee (CBS’ Big Brother season one winner), George Wendt (Cheers - CBS Distribution), Nikki SooHoo (Heathers), and Jacob Zachar (Greek). Eddie's is directed and executive produced by Michael Lange (X-Files, Bones, Criminal Minds). A staple of the Venice Boardwalk, Eddie's Bar & Grille has been a safe haven for locals and a happening tourist attraction for decades. Hit with an eviction notice that seems impossible to avoid, Eddie himself worries that the location's legacy is finally coming to an end - but will the amiable collection of employees and regulars that inhabit the bar accept defeat so easily? At Eddie's every hour is happy hour and all are welcome. Eddie’s recently successfully screened at The Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood to an enthusiastic audience of over 300 people and was received exceptionally well. Eddie’s also recently won Best Television Pilot at the California Film Awards 2019 and recently screened at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival and the Irvine International Film Festival to packed sold out audiences. It also won a gold Remi Award at Worldfest Houston 2019, received special mention at the London Worldwide Comedy Short Film Festival and will be screening in June at the SOHO International Film Festival, in July at the 22nd annual Long Island International Film Expo and August at the Madrid International Film Festival. Eddie's is a great show with heart that engages and entertains with great characters and laughs aplenty which is a perfect fit for CBS. Here is a link to the trailer: https://youtu.be/IPizShCHCPU I would appreciate having a meeting to discuss Eddie’s being on CBS and look forward to hearing back from you. Best Regards, Eddie McGee
At this moment, 200,000 Pro-lifers are marching on the National Mall. CBS has NOT JUST a total media-black out on us, but in their headlines, they are actually doing an anticipatory story on our competitor, the "March for Women", whose anniversary is MERELY upcoming. That's #censorship #bias #bigotry #fakeNews
