In the latest episode of Coming Up Next, we speak to John Giwa-Amu, founder of gaming company Good Gate Media and production company Red and Black Films.
The producer talks about the future of media and entertainment post-2020, and predicts that the most successful shows will be ones that lean into a much warmer, happier world. He also discusses the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion in the screen industries, and how it’s vital that the industry gatekeepers start to reflect society properly.
Delving into the complexities that came with coronavirus lockdowns, Giwa-Amu shares how he’s found working and running his companies from home: ‘it’s actually been very grounding and showed you a more human side of people’.
