Will Interview Director and producer Neema Barnette works in both television and film, Barnette has earned the respect of peers and critics alike by winning countless accolades, including an Emmy Award for her after school special, "To Be A Man." She has realized the need to expand her audience beyond the young urban crowd and attract all people to her work. Born and raised in Harlem, Barnette made her first foray into entertainment as an actor while a student at New York's High School for the Performing Arts. She later attended NYU and moved on to directing at the insistence of theatrical producer Joseph Papp, who saw in her a unique visual style. She directed "The Blue Journey", by playwright OyamO (a.k.a. Charles Gordon), for Papp's Public Theater. She has since gone on to direct some of our favorite television shows such as ‘The Cosbys” and “Frank’s Place."
Also, Ann Bennett is a producer, director and writer for documentary films and multimedia projects with over twenty years of experience. Michele Stephenson and Joe Brewster are a husband and wife filmmaker team based in Brooklyn, NY. Shaka King is a writer, director, and producer whose short films Cocoa Loco and Herkimer
With a vast resume of work flavored with the Urban experience, award-winning director Neema Barnette has left her unique stamp on the silver screen, the small screen and the stage. A native of Harlem, New York, Neema Barnette broke into the entertainment business as an actor while attending New York's High School for the Performing Arts. She was mentored into a full-time directing career on the advice of legendary legit producer Joseph Papp who, after seeing her production of The Blue Journey by Oyamo at his Public Theater and recognizing a special visual style in Barnette's work, suggested she enroll in a Third World Cinema program. Soon after, Neema produced an after school special (To Be A Man), which won the director her first Emmy Award.
This award would launch the director onto a path of award-winning work and industry achievement. After graduating from CCNY in 1985, Barnette was awarded acceptance into the American Film Institute's Directing Workshop for Women, where she wrote, produced and directed her first film, Sky Captain, a surrealistic fantasy drama about an urban Peter Pan from the Bronx who was suicidal. This incredibly unique work earned the notice of many among the Hollywood film and television community, and led to One More Hurdle, an NBC dramatic special for which Barnette won her first NAACP Image Award. Barnette also lent her vision to a network documentary on domestic violence for NBC, The Silent Crime, which received four local Emmy nominations and won an American Women in Radio & Television award for directing.
Neema Barnette Director of the critically acclaimed upcoming film Woman Thou Art Loosed the 7th Day which stars Blair Underwood and Pam Grier will be a guest on Spirit Alive Network
