Diversity and Inclusion in Hollywood with Frederick Van Johnson & Nicki Sun

June 16, 2021 0 By Nicki Sun

Frederick Van Johnson and I discuss diversity and inclusion in Hollywood and the shifting landscape around storytelling on his latest podcast, This Week in Photo!

I had the immense pleasure of meeting Frederick Van Johnson at the Visual Storytelling Conference in May. I was invited to speak on his “How to Tell Visual Stories” panel, and then had the absolute honor of being invited on his podcast. He’s interviewed roughly 1200 incredible people within the photo, tech, and film space, so it was truly an honor to be amongst such credible folx in the entertainment industry.

If it’s not known by now that championing diversity and inclusion within Hollywood (it’s why I created this website) is my thing, then buckle up because having this conversation with another POC was truly refreshing. It was such an open and honest conversation that I didn’t know I needed until speaking with Frederick. And I hope you do take the time to download this podcast or watch our interview because we REALLY dug deep and found out that we are essentially the SAME person with just a few noticeable differences 😉

P.S. A correction needs to be made. For everytime I said Sixteen Candles, I meant Breakfast at Tiffany’s 🤦🏻‍♀️
