As evidenced by #OscarsSoWhite and a recent analysis by the Women’s Media Center that discovered (unsurprisingly and disappointingly) that women accounted for only 19% of Oscar nominations in non-acting categories in the last decade, our industry has an inclusion problem. Here at Sandwich Video, we’re determined to do our part to make sure everyone has a seat at the table, so we’re ramping up our efforts to create more inclusive media.
We believe that change on screen is driven by change behind the camera. To increase representation on screen, we must increase the number of women, people of color, and LGBTQ folks in leadership and creative roles behind the scenes. We’re determined not to allow diversity to just be a buzzword or a nice idea to which we pay some lip service. We want to see the diversity of our world represented in our videos and in our crews.
Ava Duvernay rightly declared that it’s really not that hard to be inclusive and find the best talent. So we’re following her lead and looking past our front door to “seek + find + hire.” We’re looking for women, people of color, LGBTQ folks, and people who represent an intersection of these identities to help us expand our roster of freelancers in all positions: from creative and above-the-line, through to our department heads and post-production. So if you or anyone you know would be interested in working with Sandwich, let us know!
