Hey Meah host, Meah Denee, took a trip to Washington, D.C. to cover the third stop on the Moguls In Media tour! This is the second year of the tour and it continues to build momentum bringing together industry professionals to hold a great panel about the struggles and joys of working in the entertainment industry.
On this stop the panelists included TV One Producer, Terrance Nelson, top PR women Candice Nicole (Women Who Hustle) and Regan Farley (My PR Agency), pitch master Patrice Tartt (Black Enterprise) and news reporter Mikea Turner (WUSA9).
The panel answered questions about the misconceptions of working in the industry, they also talked about the patience, diligence, and hard work ethic it takes to make it within any area of entertainment. Be sure to watch the event recap video below and let us know what you think! #LetsGetReel
Reel Reality was originally created to showcase only young and new professionals within the film and television industry. Specifically, actors, producers, directors, etc but Reel Reality founder, Meah Denee, is trying to balance her love for live music with her love for producing. With that being said every month there will be a new “artist” that will be spotlighted and interviewed!
We start 2017 off with rapper and MC JSwiss who performed a single from his “No Music” Ep on Hey Meah! Host Meah Denee catches up with JSwiss talking about his collaborations with bass guitarist, Brady Watt, from DJ Premier live band. JSwiss also talks about his new “No Music” and the meaning of the title, and even performs a track from the EP! Watch the performance and interview below.
Hey Meah was in attendance at the one year anniversary of Moguls in Media! The first stop for the MIM tour was the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, at the creative workspace, We Work.
Walking into the We Work space I was excited to interview the moguls and even more pleased to eat the delicious food and sip on some margaritas! There was such a great variety of flavored margaritas (Peach was my favorite) and the food catered by Chef Christine Hazel was so good.
Besides the event catering to my professional interests I was really attracted to the fact it was put together by a young woman, Darcel Laurie, who aspires to educate and help others achieve the same success that some of these moguls have already achieved.
After seeing the line up of panelists I was already anxious and excited to interview the moguls. The Philly moguls included Quincy Harris from The Q Show on Fox29, NFL Films reporter and producer Courtland Bragg, and the ladies included The PR Alliance’s Mariah Oates and Keisha Brewer, and returning mogul Chef Christine Hazel.
Once I finished up some good laughs and a few dance breaks on the red carpet I got to relax a little and tune into the panel. I can definitely say the advice given from the panel I took to heart and could relate to.
The best advice came from the true veteran of the panel Quincy Harris who has been in the entertainment industry for over 15 years, first in radio and now television. Harris said, “you have to keep jumping and keep taking risks. You have to keep betting on yourself until you get to your ultimate goal. That for me was a nice reminder that I am capable of achieving the goals I have set for myself, and I should not be afraid to aggressively pursue my dreams.
