S01/E06 - Diversity in Film: A Conversation with Don Hahn
TwoOhSix.com presents the first ever TwoOhSix Podcast Series, Diversity in Film: Conversations from Within the Industry. Whether or not you have heard of Don Hahn may depend on your level of Disney fandom. This prolific and award winning producer has been responsible for so many classic films in the Disney catalog including The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Maleficent, and several of the Disney Nature documentary features.
One of Don's most recent efforts is a documentary about the life of songwriter Howard Ashman which will be debuting on Disney+ some time in the near future. Don and I spoke at length covering a wide range of topics including how opportunities for women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community have changed in Hollywood over the last 30 years.
Diversity in Film: Conversations from Within the Industry is hosted by TwoOhSix.com founder Marc Morin and features conversations with actors, directors, producers, film critics and more all discussing their thoughts on diversity in an industry that has been in need of some new perspectives and fresh voices. The podcast series launches on Monday, May 11th and will continue weekly with new episodes released every Monday.
