Call in to speak with the host
Loretta McNary Live is a premier blog talk radio show created for an empowered, active, and diverse TV, radio, social media and online listening audience. LML uses a progressive live call in format to engage our listening audience.
Our guest today is Tammy Warren, is the first black woman to open a studio and post-production facility in the state of Georgia. Open Rivers Pictures (ORP) is a 16,000 sq. ft. complex with production and post-production operations that Williams hopes to attract filmmakers and made-for-television productions.
Williams is a former writer/producer for television networks including, WRCB-TV (NBC-Chattanooga, TN) and WDSU-TV (NBC-New Orleans). Her latest project involves a series with award-winning gospel artist Marvin Sapp. Since his wife's passing, Sapp has been raising his three children alone. Open Rivers is capturing the Sapp family's transition in a new show entitled, "Marvin Sapp: Single Dad."
In addition to providing entertainment, ORP is dedicated to educating and building communities. Their summer internship program is designed for students to walk away with a wider perspective of filmmaking and production, and with the supplies needed to make their dreams come true. They also recently launched their Film Academy offering classes in film, television and digital media. Fall classes include on-camera acting for adults, improv for kids, and film distribution and producing digital content.
It's good to talk.
