Oscar Diversity: Producer Calls for an African-American Studio (Guest Column)

9 February 2016 5:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marvin Peart, co-founder of Marro Media Co., is executive producer of the 2013 Weinstein Co. release “Escape from Planet Earth” and TV shows including “Mob Wives.” In a guest column for Variety, he calls for people of color in the entertainment business to join forces to create their own content and studios.

A color-free Academy Awards is indeed a strange anomaly, in an America more enriched every day by its people of color. But the problem is one that those less experienced in the art of filmmaking — and the art of the film business — might not recognize.

So I think we should put a magnifying glass on the larger problem — the offices of the studios where projects and budgets are approved.

Minority performers are being watched closely by fellow African-Americans and other communities of color for two reasons: first, they’re in a business they want to join; and second, they most resemble them physically. »
