Inclusion and Representation in Sync w/Tiffany Anders
There is a historical underrepresentation of marginalized groups in the entertainment industry – on the screen, and behind the scenes. Although trends over the recent years have favored diversity, the rate of progress has been overwhelmingly slow, and according to UCLA’s College of Social Sciences releases an annual “Hollywood Diversity Report,” minority groups are still vastly underrepresented in the film industry – with similar trends apparent in the music industry. An experienced HR consultant in a Forbes article poignantly stated, “The entertainment industry ends up being a kind of a reflection of our society. What people see every day is what they usually follow or they’re influenced by. Entertainment is what people see arguably the most, that’s why representation and diversity matter so much there specifically.” – Alexandra McGroarty
Music supervisors hold an extremely important role in the entertainment industry, and with this power, a choice to either serve in the fight against this ongoing crisis of underrepresentation in Hollywood, or contribute to it. Tiffany Anders is a supervisor who has chosen to aid in the fight.
Among Tiffany’s work on countless critically acclaimed TV series and films was Reservation Dogs. This series uniquely featured an all-Indigenous American cast, and was also written and directed by Indigenous Americans. Tiffany ensured that this all-too-rare representation was reflected by a soundtrack that properly represented the story and the cast’s Indigenous roots.
