Los Angeles, CA, January 11, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- OTK Media Group, Inc. and Emmy® Award winner Orlando Delbert have successfully produced and released the third episode of ‘Hollywood, Unapologetic!’ – “We Are The New Hollywood Generation: Creating Our Legacy” as part of the ‘New Hollywood Generation’ movement.
“This is an important time in history. There is a transitional shift occurring sociologically, culturally and politically,” said Delbert. “We live in a time where social unrest and images of war are read about and seen on the airwaves daily. As we turn on the morning news, there seems to be an endless succession of stories of discontent all over the world and in our local communities. Some of these events have a direct bearing on a whole generation, economically and psychologically. The most obvious is a disenfranchised sense of where they belong in the world. This in part fuels a certain disconnect on the most basic levels, where interaction through social media and text messaging is preferred over face-to-face connections.”
“Add to that a level of false self-entitlement has a place to flourish under the guise of a perceived greatness with one self with the ease of creating your own micro-celebrity through social media,” said Delbert. “This is a huge disservice to one self. A huge opportunity is being lost. With all of the time spent on 'selfies' and inane ramblings and videos about nonsense, that time and effort can be used to do something constructive with it.”
“If one percent of the 75 million young people that are considered a 'millennial' were more mindful of what they post online and the content they are creating, instead focused on a message, it can directly influence history on a global scale. This conversation is not at all limited to just of one generation,” said Delbert. “There is also another problem. I’m not sure if it’s that people are caught up in a limited acceptance of one another’s beliefs or if they feel threatened by what they don’t know. Too many individuals are caught up in an anachronistic mindset that defeats the possibility for a unified world. While our technology is evolving quickly, we are not evolving fast enough.”
“History has shown us that mass media can effectively influence change,” said Delbert. “We are in a unique position as content creators to influence change and it is our responsibility to do so. If more of us can get together to create positive films and television programming, hire more people from broader backgrounds and not limit ourselves or our potential, by identifying one another only by race, color, sex, religion, sexual preference or someone’s physical limitations, we can influence the masses to be more open-minded. This will give us the ability to have a broader audience, as well as to influence others to tell their stories and, hopefully, to be less afraid to tell them. The world is greatly influenced by what is seen on the screen and heard on the radio. Let’s give them something that will drive everyone to do something bigger and to make a positive difference in the world.”

“The issue of having a more diverse place for different ethnicities and more opportunities for women and those that are handicapped in the television and film industry is no different,” said Delbert. “The arguments made by many about low percentages of this and that don’t move the issue forward. Actually opening your mind and creating collaborative projects does. And this is true in your everyday life as well.”

The ‘Hollywood, Unapologetic!’ web-series and the “Pollyanna’s Tear Soaked Battlefields of Hollywood: A Survival Guide Against the Cynicism and the Hypocritical” series of books were designed to be at the core of the ‘New Hollywood Generation’ as a progressive movement to encourage discussions that will initiate constructive lines of thought in the hopes to get young people to become thought leaders and to create a positive voice for themselves, their communities, and one another.
