“I know that there is a distinction between Black filmmakers and White filmmakers by Hollywood and by America as a whole. Black filmmakers have different obstacles, different markets, different expectations, different industry standards in expectations. ("The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style," 2018)”
Joseph Strickland, The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style

“There are four hundred and fifty films written by Black screenwriters/filmmakers every year. Sadly, of these, only three will ever see the light of day. ("The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style," 2018)”
Joseph Strickland, The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style

“Spike Lee was the voice depicting the ills of social issues. Joseph Strickland will depict the spiritual issues (or ills) from within. ("The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style," 2018)”

“Songwriters are the architects of the music industry. Without a songwriter, there could not, and would not be a music industry. We create the Blueprint”
Cat Ellington

“Diversity is key where my casting duties are concerned. And as a casting director, I will always assemble multi-cultural ensembles. Always.”
Cat Ellington

“If God ever commands the spirit of wisdom to depart from me, well, I reckon that I'll never be able to compose the written word again. Not in music, and not in literature. If there is a blank page before me, it wouldn't matter if my right hand held a thousand dollar ink pen from the House of Montblanc, or an ink pen branded Paper Mate, not one word would be jotted from the ink of either or, and the page would remain blank.”
Cat Ellington

“As a working professional in the entertainment industry, I have come to truly cherish both my creative freedom and my independence. Because I, for one, know how precious and priceless they are.”
Cat Ellington

“After you have done your work—challenging as it may have been to complete—and released it in the marketplace, be not concerned with sales, reviews, critical acclaim, or anything else of the like... After you've written and published a book, you're now an AUTHOR. And that great honor can NEVER be taken away from you, no matter what. ("My Book Place," 2018)”
