Cassius Life The Creative Class 2018

The Creative Class series is an online installation dedicated to profiling the creatives and cultural influencers who use their talents to bring stories of the underrepresented and the marginalized into the mainstream. Their bold, unapologetic and powerful presence separates them from their peers and inspires all those who encounter their work. Like CASSIUS editors and influencers, they aren’t just creating the culture — they are the culture.

The stop on the tour includes Dui Jarrod and Kelley Kali, as they chronicle their new projects and what it takes to move forward as a black creative at O Cinema Wynwood in Miami, FL on Dec 6th.

“Now What? How to Move Forward in the World of Serialized Content” Sponsored by SAGIndie

For this special event, we’ve invited two series creators to dish how their work made it out into the world, from soup to nuts.

We know the landscape of episodic entertainment is changing and our panelists Dui Jarrod (co-creator, Brooklyn. Blue. Sky) and Christopher Poindexter (co-creator, Brooklynification) will help you make sense of this new terrain.

With Brooklyn. Blue. Sky at home on BET.com and Brooklynification in its second season at Bric, Dui and Christopher have had to figure out how to balance the creative and strategic development of their work and they can help you do the same.

Join us as we ask them: how they manage the writing process, how they’ve cultivated an audience for their work and organically grown their web series. In this wide-ranging conversation, we’ll engaged these creators on how they navigate the ever-changing landscape for serialized content.
