Los Angeles, CA, January 11, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- OTK Media Group, Inc. and Emmy® Award winner Orlando Delbert have successfully produced and released the first episode of ‘Hollywood, Unapologetic!’ – “A Truth About Diversity and Inclusion in Hollywood” as part of the ‘New Hollywood Generation’ movement.
“There is no question, the subject of diversity in Hollywood has received a lot of attention, especially since the Academy Awards received a lot of attention for the choices in their nominations, which in turn saw a surge in the #OscarsSoWhite hash tag hitting social media,” said Delbert. “But there is a truth about diversity and inclusion in Hollywood that has not been getting nearly enough attention.”
“Even with the attack towards the motion picture academy, many did not take the time to learn the Academy Awards are a representation of motion pictures only, and not of the motion picture business,” said Delbert. “They are two very different subjects. Nor did many take into account it takes years for any production to get made. Hollywood does and will always follow the money, all in the pursuit of the commodification of Hollywood.”

“All of the points made by so many on these issues, regardless of the validity, miss the simple point, we all need to create the projects we want, hire the people we want, and base it on the individual’s talents and willingness to be inclusive of one another,” said Delbert. “This should not to be based on just someone’s ethnic background, sex, age, sexual preference, or anything else, because for us to get beyond this, we have to work as one. It truly is that simple.”
“Many cultures around the world identify with the products offered by the Hollywood machine as a strong representation of whom we are and what we’re about,” said Delbert. “Doesn’t it make sense to create the projects and the roles of true substance that are of a positive voice, not just because any group of people may be considered marginalized by some? To achieve true diversity, we have to encourage one another to be inclusive of one another. And I say inclusive, not tolerant. They have very different meanings.”
