Netflix Unveils ‘Great Day in Hollywood’ Image Spot Highlighting Black Creators

  • Variety
Netflix unveiled a brand image spot during Sunday’s Bet Awards telecast that highlights black artists who work for the streaming giant.

The spot dubbed “A Great Day in Hollywood” was inspired by the famed 1958 photograph “A Great Day in Harlem” featuring 57 jazz legends — including Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, and Count Basie — on the stairs of New York brownstone snapped by photographer Art Kane.

The Netflix spot from director Lacey Duke features 47 black writers, showrunners, actors, and producers. The plan for the spot and the image campaign stemmed from Netflix’s Strong Black Lead initiative designed to foster an “ongoing, intentional focus to talk authentically with the black audience.” A photo similar to “Great Day in Harlem” was taken earlier this month by photographer Kwaku Alston to commemorate the gathering.

The debut comes just two days after Netflix was rocked by the abrupt departure of corporate communications chief Jonathan Friedland

15 Grammy 2015 nominees who already won at social media
Social media reigns supreme! Or at least it does when it comes to the 2015 Grammy nomination announcements. All day long, a constant stream of contenders have been posted to the official Grammy Twitter account. More so than ever this year, the social media savvy singers and bands separated from the pack. While some iconic stars remained strangely mum — not a peep as of this writing from Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, or Beyonce on either Twitter or Instagram — others dove right in. Anyone can write a sincere “Thank you!!!1!” but a few went above and beyond. Whether hashtagging their hearts out, using emojis, or just a fun turn of phrase, these nominees showed off their personalities…which means they’ve already won the award for Social Media Navigation.

"Yelling To The Sky" Should Try Yelling Some Exposition

In Yelling to the Sky, Sweetness O'Hara (Zoe Kravitz) has never had it easy. Living in poverty with her sick mother (Yolonda Ross) and pregnant sister Ola (Antonique Smith), she still manages to succeed in school and stay out of trouble for the most part. When her father's violent mood swings become more frequent and they can't afford the weekly grocery bill, Sweetness starts dealing drugs for her family. Her motivation is initially to make ends meet, but it isn't long until she is partying, forming her own gang, and beating up her schoolyard enemies like Latonya (Gabourey Sidibe).

Yelling to the Sky | Review

Shout It Out: Mahoney’s Debut an Uneasy Mix of Style Over Substance

It’s not quite accurate to call Victoria Mahoney’s directorial and screenwriting debut, Yelling to the Sky, a failed effort, but its attempts to relate the rough and tumble adolescence of a young girl’s life in a mixed race Queens household feel overly familiar and not quite fully realized. However, Mahoney’s nascent talents as a director are frequently on display here, though her stylish flourishes would have perhaps been more at home on something that wasn’t a semi-autobiographical treatment of a subject, that, because of its casting and narrative similarities, will be unfavorably compared to 2009’s more compelling and divisive Precious.

Set in an almost indistinguishable time period in Queens, Sweetness O’Hara (Zoe Kravitz) and her older sister, Ola (Antonique Smith) depend on each other, combating other violently inclined teenagers from surrounding neighborhoods,
