Our relationship with HBO continues as D7I Creative Director and “BlackCard” director Pete Chatmon has been selected to participate in the HBO Access Directing Program where after a week of sessions with a development executive, he will direct a presentation from an internal HBO pilot.

Check out this VIDEO explaining more about the program and read below for program details:

In an effort to expand the ranks of diverse directors in the entertainment industry, HBO, in partnership with the DGA, has launched the HBOAccess program. The program will provide mentorship, education, and the ability to shoot a short presentation for HBO.

The program will select diverse directors to participate in master classes which will focus on pre-production, production, and post-production.

Each participant will be paired with an HBO development executive who will serve as his/her mentor throughout the process. Upon completion of the weeklong series of classes each director will be assigned a script to shoot for possible airing on various HBO platforms including, but not limited to HBOGo, HBO service, HBO’s Youtube channel, HBO.com, HBONow, and other outlets.

Stay tuned for more updates!
