Find Your Tribe w/ BDB Productions

It’s friends like these that make us miss being in each other’s personal presence that much more and also friends like these that remind us what presence even means — as actors, as producers, as creative forces of nature. Four of BDB Productions’ team members — Franckie Francois, Lovell Adams-Gray,  Adrian Walters, and Emmanuel Ofori — join us to share how they came together as actors in times of strife and began finding their own individual voices as well as that of their collective to tell underrepresented stories. They talk about their first steps as new producers, what the production landscape looks like in a rapidly changing industry with new COVID-19 related safety measures and regulations, shining light on the Black Lives Matter conversation and presenting different voices within the black community through their art, balancing self-belief and faith in something greater, and finding their tribe that made all the difference in moving forward. Everything culminates in a heated debate that we all turn over to you, the audience. To help us settle the debate, share your voice at https://anchor.fm/wtnok/message.
