Sales/Marketing, Clarendon Entertainment

When
William Tolbert recently graduated from Mercy College (Dobbs Ferry, NY
Campus) with a degree in film production and a minor in business
marketing, he knew two things for sure: he was going to start a
publishing company with his brother, and he would be directing his own
films.

Tolbert wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He knows that it
takes tenacity and fervor to fulfill his purpose. While his life is in
intermission, between reality and dreams, he’s doing what it takes to
get his foot in the film industry’s door.


“I do sales and marketing for Clarendon Entertainment. It’s a wonderful
networking opportunity and I’ve made contact with a lot of important
people. I’ve also learned what goes on behind the scenes,” shares the
eager salesman. Toting the first installment of Clarendon’s short films
for their Urban S.L.A.M. (Short Live Action Movies) unit, Tolbert
offers, “This is Volume 1; I am very excited about it. The shorts are
about 15-30 minutes apiece.” He asserts that audiences shouldn’t let
the name Urban S.L.A.M. fool them; this isn’t a bunch of shoot-’em-up
flicks. “It’s a diverse group of films – spiritual, romance, and
quality movies as well,” he says. “Anyone can enjoy them.”
As Tolbert stood on 125th Street in Harlem braving the heat, he
approached passersby and in some cases, they stopped to listen and, in
others reached in their pockets to support his labor. It was such a
wonderful sight to see – the embracing of the efforts of our youth,
which guarantees their chances of a successful future. – yvette caslin
