  • I Talk to Strangers

    I Talk to Strangers (2018)
    Film (Documentary) Camera and Electrical Department In 2012, Robbie Stokes, Jr. left his job on Capitol Hill to start a conversation with people he did not know as a leap of faith to try to bring the world together. He set out to test his theory that we could solve many of our problems if we made an effort to meet and learn from strangers. In so doing, we look beyond preconceived notions and stereotypes and seek to find areas of agreement. Armed with an ITTS t-shirt, a smile, and some opening questions, he began challenging down one of our social conventions by introducing himself to people to break down racial, social, and cultural barriers.

    Bring It! (2015 - 2017)
    Television (Drama, Music and Reality-TV) Camera and Electrical Department Bring It! is a new dance reality show which focuses on the dance team, The Dancing Dolls, from Mississippi. They are a competition dance team, and their style is, "Hip-Hop Majorettes." This show is produced by Lifetime, and is lively, and the girls are fun to watch. Coach D is a strong woman, with a no-nonsense personality, and drives the girls under her to be the best they can be. Still, she has a human side, and she does care about the girls, and tries to be supportive of them (something we don't see too often in another, well-known dance reality show). Further, the "drama" of the dance moms is surprisingly low-key when compared to another reality dance show, also produced by Lifetime. Give this show a chance. It will surprise you, as the dancing is different from what you are likely used to watching. Written by SataiDelen
