In the first segment I am joined by co-founder and Executive Director of ReelWorks, John Williams. Established in 2001, Reel Works provides free filmmaking programs for NYC Youth.  Using a unique, one-on-one mentoring model, ReelWorks challenges at-risk youth to tell their stories and have their voices heard.  In turn, they build vital skills of literacy, leadership and self-confidence to create productive futures. Williams is an award-winning film and television writer, producer and director whose credits include independent shorts, features, documentaries, television programming and corporate communications. Prior to founding Reel Works, John created original television for WNET/Thirteen, Oxygen, WE: Women’s Television and Metro Channels. John has produced numerous major market television commercials and independent films. John holds an MFA in Film & Television from New York University and a BA in English from Boston University.

Up next I’m joined by VHX co-founder Jamie Wilkinson. VHX is a direct-to-fan distribution platform built for premium video. The company empowers artists to sell their work from their own websites, directly to fans.
