What can we say about Childish Gambino’s earth-shaking “This Is America” video without running out of adjectives? The hype and hyperbole is justified for such a provocative work of art, one which has inspired countless articles, breakdowns, think pieces, and even classroom lesson plans.
Doomsday Entertainment founder Danielle Hinde talked to Addison Capper of Little Black Book about being the matchmaker who first paired together director Hiro Murai and Donald Glover – aka Childish Gambino.
Without Hinde playing creative cupid, we’d never be able to experience the duo’s darkly experimental visions, played out in a half-dozen of Gambino videos and multiple “Atlanta” episodes (yes, the nightmare-inducing “Teddy Perkins” is among them.) Walk with Hinde as she takes LBB readers down memory lane, shedding some light on her favorite Glover-Murai projects to date.
