BIPOC DOCUMENTARY COLLECTIVE

“Thread” is a media platform where emerging BIPOC media producers share their works-in-progress, gain feedback, and fundraise to complete their documentary projects.

TAKE CONTROL OF THE NARRATIVE

SHARE, GAIN FEEDBACK AND FUNDRAISE AMONG A SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY

Stories matter, and the narrative of today’s era will affect our future and how we view our place in the world.

The Thread BIPOC Documentary Collective aims to inspire the next generation by providing a supportive community of filmmakers to help you share their stories and contribute to an accurate and nuanced narrative about our experience.

The Thread gives filmmakers the opportunity to share your work, gain feedback, and raise funds to take their projects to the next level. By hosting on-line meetups with established and emerging industry professionals, the Thread provides intimate support and learning experiences for the next generation of filmmakers.

In the past, these resources were scarcely available, but with the growing number of BIPOC documentary filmmakers and boldness to share our multilayered cultures and histories, along with more interest in our stories, we hope to share knowledge and increase access to support and resources to build the largest collective of BIPOC media creators in the world.

Join us and become part of this new movement of documentary filmmakers.

What is BreakFit?

Break Fit combines movements from Breakin’ (formerly referred to as break dancing) and bodyweight exercises into fun, challenging, and easy-to-follow fitness programs.

The 3 simple steps that keep our members motivated and excited to work out:

Step One

Use unique types of exercises that they have never done before in each workout so they never get bored and are constantly learning new movements

Step Two

Place the exercises to music so they push themselves to keep up with the beat and feel like they are dancing more than working out

Step Three

Put together unique combinations that they want master and show off even when they are not working out

Workouts utilize natural movements such as crawling, jumping, and rolling, along with various bodyweight exercises and Breakin’ movements to achieve fitness and make fitness fun again.

No need to schedule any workouts, all videos are on-demand and can be played anytime, anywhere.

THE MARSHA TURNER TAYLOR VISIONARY AWARD

The Marsha Turner Taylor Visionary Award extends the philanthropic goals of the Thread LLC by supporting charitable activities and making grants to individuals who embody the social and media activism of Marsha Turner Taylor, who at 15 years old, helped launch and grow the Free Breakfast for Children Program, created by the Black Panther Party in Oakland, CA in the late 1960s. Her family now lives in the Pacific Northwest where the Marsha Turner Taylor Visionary Award is based. The Award acknowledges youth media artists with a unique vantage point to a game-changing moment in history, and who use their position to make the world a better place.
