If you have any interest in ever working behind the scenes in TV/movies, go to @ava’s Instastory now. She is spotlighting the various positions and responsibilities. Oh, and I love seeing all the beautiful Black and Brown faces on the set.

I had the chance to see @ava IG stories introducing some crew members & thought it was so awesome of her to do that. It’s definitely a great way to learn about the different jobs behind the scenes that are also very important. I think it’s so dope!! Much love to you Ava😊🎬💕 https://t.co/ZDu9WB5nCB

Whenever Ava is on set, she posts a lot of impromptu interviews with her below-the-line crew members. It’s nice that she’s highlighting these unseen folks. But, it’s a truly amazing behind-the-scenes look for people who haven’t been on sets. This is a steadicam operator. https://t.co/07h8mK7Um6

One of my favorite performances in one of my favorite films was given by DMX. If you haven’t seen BELLY in a while or at all, gift yourself with his talent in that film this weekend. #RIPDMX https://t.co/jUXm2bagPa

"Judas and the Black Messiah" has made Oscar history as the first Best Picture nominee with an all-Black producing team. And it isn't the first time producer Charles D. King has made Hollywood history. https://t.co/Ttb1UZBZs2

Full-hearted pride is what I feel when it comes to you, Cierra. Four episodes directed over two seasons in less than a year - a pandemic year. One never knows when one’s dream will come true. But when it does, be ready to embrace and enjoy. You were. Brava! https://t.co/qDrO7HqWIo

Last year, @ARRAYNow created @LeapAction, a fund to commission artists and challenge ideas behind qualified immunity for police. Our fourth project is from culinary activist Jocelyn Jackson. Thanks to @Essence for profiling this beautiful, meaningful work. https://t.co/WZ6WH3OUj9
