https://youtu.be/vonjYOpNhus Shameless self-promotion here, but my new video essay is very relevant to this Tremendous FB group. I know many of us are “trying to change Hollywood” right now as outsiders trying to push in, however, I think we’re at a point where the most powerful thing Asians can do is to shift our mindset to one of SUPERSEDING HOLLYWOOD. The reality is that streaming platforms have brought previously “offshore markets” together---Asia/Pacific audiences can now see the same movies/shows on the same platforms as Americans and Europeans. Which means we can and should be creating original content, characters, and IPs (intellectual properties) that directly markets to Asians worldwide. Why beg and cajole Hollywood gatekeepers (the general audiences aren't the ones denying Asians opportunities) who only want to jealously hold on to their exclusive right to say “yes or no” and who gets to be the “diversity hire” when we can go right past them and make the money they’re leaving on the table? If you're still in the mindset of getting Hollywood to change from within, you're thinking too small.
