The Group Effort Initiative
Making a film is a group effort, but for entirely too long that group has systemically excluded Black, Indigenous, people of color and several other marginalized communities. This is a global problem which will not be fixed overnight, but change can start locally and immediately.
Covid-willing, we’ll be starting a movie this fall. We’ll be bringing on between 10 and 20 trainees who are Black, Indigenous, people of color or people from marginalized and excluded communities. Of all ages. From 18 to 118. (If you’re under 18, your time will come. Sorry, there are laws!) These new recruits will be paid and housed out of my salary and will spend their days on set learning from professionals and getting real-life experience that they can then parlay into another job and another job and hopefully a career in the film industry.
Specifics for the shoot are still being finalized, but please register for updates via email below. We will be sending out filming and application details in the coming weeks.
The Group Effort Initiative exists to create a pipeline for Black, Indigenous, people of color or people from marginalized and excluded communities to get real experience towards a lasting career within the entertainment industry. We will identify opportunities for people to work as Production Trainees on various projects and continue to post applications here as new positions arise.
