GET THE BIG PICTURE WAS FORMED BY THE TWO FRIENDS WHO SHARE A PASSION FOR MOVIES, EDUCATION, AND SOCIAL AWARENESS.
Trinket Lewis and Rakeda L. Ervin met twenty years ago in a professional TV and film producer’s program at UCLA.
The two soon-to-be entertainment industry mavens and digital entrepreneurs connected in the UCLA Producers Program and were introduced to a hands-on engaging learning program that changed the way they thought about film education. They became roommates, hired each other on various projects, and created a children's animated TV show, The Adventures of Bing of Bong. After embarking on successful media careers and countless conversations about movies, storytelling, and media literacy, they are partnering once again to educate the next generation of movie-lovers through a different lens.
Trinket is a Catalyst, Educator, Storyteller, and Creative Content Strategist. When she’s not juggling empathetic parenting, yoga practice, producing TV projects and her first documentary feature, she enjoys hanging out with her fiance and enjoying all that Atlanta has to offer.
