Welcome our new Fundraising and Strategy Coordinator, Tsailii Rogers! With deep roots in the high desert of New Mexico, the Diné/Navajo reservation of Arizona, and sunny California, Tsailii's unconventional BIPOC (Diné and Latina) upbringing combined with her performing arts and business backgrounds uniquely prepared her for a fulfilling filmmaking and acting career.As founder of Silent T Productions (STP), a social impact production company, Tsailii collaborates with talented storytellers to develop, produce, and distribute positive change assets (copy, image, film) across engaging platforms while creating opportunities for underserved creators. To learn more about STP and shop #2NDCHANCE, STP's online sustainable store that supports impact projects that empower underserved creators, visit SilentTProductions.com. As an IATSE Local 480 filmmaker, she has contributed to the success of multiple films, television pilots, and TV shows for leading networks, such as HBO, CBS, The CW, and Netflix.
No, Tsailii didn’t attend film school. The film industry is a business. Therefore, she leverages her business skills to secure opportunities with industry leaders who value empowering underserved creators to help break down barriers for people of color in the industry. The filmmaking skills that Tsailii learns are quickly passed on to historically marginalized storytellers who wouldn’t have filmmaking opportunities otherwise.A recognized multiplier of leadership and positivity, entities engage Tsailii to influence all walks of life in local content and positive change. She has crushed multiple marathons, worked in Congress for the first of two Native Congresswomen, and won numerous awards, scholarships, and grants thanks to her solid work ethic and passion for social change. Tsailii recently signed with Redhawk Talent Management and Presley Talent Agency. She plans to continue creating social impact and secure long-term producing and acting roles with major television networks that value her dynamic background, passion for positive change, and commitment to lifelong learning. #panopower #panonetwork
Here's an incredible non-profit you should know about! @thejtclist Women of Color Unite (WOCU) is a LA-based social action organization focusing on fair access, fair treatment and fair pay for women of color in all aspects of the entertainment and media industries. They provide resources to a collective of over 5000 women and growing, creating opportunities for engagement between hiring agents and their membership of experienced women to address the indefensible precept: “I don’t know any WOC that I can hire.” To this end, they've created the JTC List (named after founder Cheryl Bedford’s mother, Joan Theresa Curtis), a user-friendly database of of WOCU members listed by profession. Request access to The JTC List via their website and learn more about how to support and hire their members! https://wocunite.org/

Wishing a very Happy Mother’s Day to all the #momsinfilm. Let’s all take a moment to think how we can better serve the mothers in our industry - Can you have childcare on your next set? A private room for breast-feeding mothers who may need to pump? Shorter days to allow crew to be home to see their kids before bed? Even just one of these is a step towards a better industry for moms and parents everywhere.
