Gene Noble’s “Expectations” is visualized with animation and words in the frame. Noble’s image is transformed into a colorful still cartoon in the midst of the moon and stars. The singer-songwriter had a good year in 2018 touring with Sting and Shaggy. He is currently preparing for the release of his second album, Elevation, on February 1st. 


Black Public Media Selects Fellows For Its Third 360 Incubator +

Black Public Media has 10 teams for its 360 Incubator + program designed to recognize and develop excellent Black content. The third round is the largest-ever class and eight web and broadcast teams are competing for up to $150,000 in funding to help produce the pilots or funding reels for their projects. For the first time there are two virtual reality teams in the program reflecting Black Public Media’s new creed to introduce Black filmmakers and creatives to the storytelling potential of virtual reality and other emerging technologies. 

Black Public Media is the only national non-profit dedicated exclusively to funding and advancing media content about the Black experience. 

The 10 winning teams completed a bootcamp in Hudson Valley, New York earlier this month and they are currently attending intensive Incubator Workshops in New York City. The workshop topics include grant-writing, budgeting, reel-creating, licenses, community engagement, distribution and virtual reality.
