Hello, Hello!


In this episode, we have a conversation with Emmy-winning director and Creative Consultant, Fr3deR1ck. In this hard-hitting, no-holds-barred interview, we talk about his award-winning documentary film, 'Counter Histories: Rock Hill,' his production company Tomorrow Pictures, life-changing experiences in Kenya and Romania, the many roles race plays in film opportunities in America, the plight of the Black male intellectual, who and what Black people are afraid of, how he structures his documentaries, types of currency to be aware of when raising funding, the EMMY award process, and a one of a kind story from the set of 'Driving Miss Daisy.' Enjoy! 


The MAKE IT podcast is brought to you by the Voice of the Filmmaker program, which is sponsored by Women in Film and Television, Nashville (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization).
