Necessary Media

I started Necessary Media to tell necessary stories in a necessary way. To bring powerful, diverse, inclusive stories to the largest audiences possible. Our development strategy is intentional, focused, and executed by experts trained in television-quality production. That means you receive network-worthy videos without a network budget.

@c_yates ALL the YES to this sentiment! 🙌🏼💯🙌🏼
.
.
2020 it’s time we send the pitch, write the screenplay, direct the short film.... make BIG, SCARY, creative moves.
.
.
Fighting the good fight has never been more important than it is right now. It feels like evil, hate, greed and fear are still winning. It’s crushing, terrifying and it must continue to mobilize those of us who tell stories that connect, unify and speak truth to hate.
.

We are ready. You are ready. Here we go!!

Kristina's story is one of power and strength.

Women made, have made, are making and will continue to make PHENOMENAL MOVIES.

Movies, television, digital content by women is necessary media. I applaud all the women directors who were overlooked today. Your movies are epic, deeply moving, ballsy, sexy and funny. HUGE shout out to my personal favorite this year @lorenescafaria Hustlers is a big, beautiful, badass film. 💯💪🏼💪🏽💪🏻💪🏿

This moment in time was captured at the wedding of our dearest friends @_chopper_ and @haysarahay.

Women have so much more to do and talk about other than men. So why isn’t that the case in our media? ESPECIALLY MOVIES.
.
.
My baseline for creating content is the Bechdel test. These simple rules only ask that two women in a film talk to each other about something other than a man. It’s bonkers that Hollywood and Netflix, Amazon, etc.. still create A TON of content that can’t meet that simple standard.
.
.
In fact, there is a disturbing trend this season that successful movies, box office hits, and current Oscar contenders are giving women almost NO WORDS to speak. (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the Irishman) WTF?!?
.
.
Men and women storytellers let’s change this stale status quo. I know I’m fired up about changing this and from anger and outrage comes some beautiful work..... stay tuned!

“I know as a woman I am supposed to be afraid of getting older but I love this sh*t so much. Every year I sink deeper into this bath of unapologetic realness andit’s amazing.” - Bunmi Laditam
.
.
YES. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 EVERY. SINGLE. WORD. I too love this sh*t. Its a REVOLUTIONARY act to be our TRUE SELVES. And for me, that act has becomes so much easier as I have gotten older. I feared 50. Why??? It was so unnecessary. At 51 this is the good stuff.
.
.
I wish I had heard that it only gets better- not easier- but better. The messages regarding aging are so fear based especially for women. I won’t internalize them. I don’t internalize them. I can’t internalize them- I have an eight year old manic 😝 of a kid that I get to run, swim, dance and guide for a very long time. 🙌🏼🙏🏼🥰

“How many of us who despise the Trumps and White Supremacists of the world share their self-definition of “not racist?” ... The opposite of “racist” isn’t “not racist.” It is “antiracist.”
.
.
This book is so full of real, eye opening truths. I have proudly thought of myself as not racist. But that isn’t enough. That isn’t the understanding that takes us to an anti racist world. As a content creator, parent and human being I feel a deep responsibility to do better and be better. Ibram X. Kendi has given us that guide. You won’t be able to put this book down.
.
.
As he writes so perfectly “We know how to be racist. We know how to pretend to be not racist. Now let’s know how to be antiracist.”

“I Am abundance. I Am love. All that I need always comes. The Divine is my Source.”

- Excerpt From
Outrageous Openness
Tosha Silver .
.

Who else is embracing the woo woo today?!? My hand is raised high!! 🤚🏼🤚🏼🤚🏼 The more I fear, the less I am. The more I trust the more I am alive. .
.
So many times fearful and limited thinking people have tried to tell me “how things are” through their filter of doubts and uncreative small mindedness.

DON’T LISTEN. Trust you will always have enough. Trust it is coming (as you do the work). Trust it will show up in magical ways.
Don’t be “broke” with your business. Don’t be “broke” with your dreams.
It’s an internal mindset switch that we all can flip from broke to abundant.
If you haven’t yet discovered the books of Tosha Silver, I highly recommend you do. #necessary #necessarymedia #abundancemindset #mindsetiseverything #mindset #mondaymood #mondaymotivation #mycreativebiz #mompreneur #instaquotes @tosha_silver

“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.”

Vote Run Leadis training women to run for political office and WIN. Necessary Media was thrilled to collaborate with them and Putting Women In Their Place on this video. As Erin Vilardi RVL's Founder says so perfectly "This is a movement, not a moment."

As long as I'm still moving in that direction---toward wonder--then I know I will always be fine in my soul, which is where it counts. And since creativity is still the most effective way for me to access wonder, I choose it.”
— Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic

THIS today. I started 2019 with a big sense of burnout. I had started my dream company in 2017 .... but the reality was that I was harder on myself than any boss I had ever had in the past.
.
.
I needed to slow the F down. I needed to work from the inside out. I needed to transform from hustle to aligning. I have always put so much stock in “doing”... and it was/is time to put more love into evolving 🙏🏼♥️.
.
.
Cheers to all who are evolving, growing and getting comfortable being uncomfortable - thank you @belliardrd for showing me this is the true way to transformation 🙌🏼❤️🙌🏼

07/11/2019

Of the top 100 grossing films of 2018, women represented:
* 4% of directors
* 15% of writers
* 3% of cinematographers
* 18% of producers
* 18% of executive producers
* 14% of editors
- Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film
THAT IS NOT ENOUGH.
.
.
We can no longer only or even mostly see ourselves through male storytelling. Our voices matter, our talents matter. It is time to be center stage on camera, behind it and in the edit. We need to create the music, write the words and set the lights. No more tiny percentages.
.
.
As we celebrate the accomplishments of so many badass women on the rise to save our country it is important to fight for more representation in the writing and making of our media.
.
.
I am proud to have forged a path in television and digital media for over 15 years. I am proud of all my female storytellers. Cheers to more work and equal pay. #necessary #femaledirector #femalefilmmakers #femaledp #necessarymedia #director #producer #storytelling #storytellers #contentcreator #content #production #create #femalehost #videoproduction #equalpaynow #behindthescenes

Make no mistake, concentration camps are exactly what is happening now, in our country, with these children and families.
.
.
To quote AOC “DHS ripped 1000s of children from their parents & put them in cages w inhumane conditions.

They call their cells “dog pounds” & “freezers.”

I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are.

If that makes you uncomfortable, fight the camps - not the nomenclature.”
