We had the good fortune of connecting with Justin Robinson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Justin, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Ownership to control the Narrative of IP Ownership. To be able to create branches in a company that has opportunities like employment. After attending college I wanted to active my knowledge so I wanted my own Film company. All my life and legacy can be expressed and shared in one company.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
NewCulture Corporation is a Major Outlet for me. I’m proud to have such a great company and community. With the new world of technology, apps, streaming platforms and iPhones we have to shape our business model around that time frame. Our company and say our company because I don’t hire people to work for me, our company hire people to work with us they are partners. We no longer believe in work for hire blueprint. We are building partners that sets our company apart. My career was built on being a partner or would you say freelance contractor for a lot of production companies. Those production companies allowed me the opportunity to work for Tours, Sporting Events and Comedy Shows such as Beyoncé Formation Tour, Super Bowl 51 and Dave Chappelle Comedy show in Nashville. It wasn’t easy I was thrown in the deep end when I moved from Norfolk, VA to a City Called Atlanta,GA. I remember my very first freelance gig was Chris Brown One of a Night Tour working the Video Boards setting up his LED Screens for his show. That opportunity open my eyes to where I could take my Career. The Challenges I faced as a College Adult and New Kid in a Major City was freighting. But I stayed focused on my goals and plan. I knew that it was only a matter of time I would reach a certain level of success. Overcoming obstacles is about giving your life room to grow everyone needs time. Time is all we have in this world use it wisely. I spent alot of my time planning while I was working. Planning while I was getting educated. When you’re on a journey and everything is lining up the way you plan it out that’s the best feeling in the world. I’ve learned that if you can see the vision and follow it your on the right track. I remember my first big break as a Stage Manager for SXSW Music Festival in Austin Texas, right then and they’re I learned that this was a bigger world then I thought. In a room full of production managers and executives that have over 20 years in the industry. All I could to do is learn, grow but take charge of my own destiny. So with that being said I thank everyone who believed in me including my teachers from The Los Angeles Film School where I graduated from with my Associates Degree in Film that they’re information and influence is in the right hands. My Company NewCulture is just the evidence of what you can achieve with giving yourself the time to take your life to the fullest. My Journey from the pass 10 years has been mind blowing and I plan to do greater in the future.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
So in Downtown Hollywood is where I spend a lot of my time. So the first place I would take them is;

The Study Hollywood
Peppermint Club
Slayers Club
Also Venice Beach, Malibu and Burbank.

That would be amazing week in Hollywood.

But because I am by Coastal I have to bring you Downtown Norfolk Virginia where the Headquarters of NewCulture Studios is and show you around:

The Waterside District has amazing Food and Entertainment.

The Art District has amazing creative places and theaters.

I have to take you to my University OLD Dominion University for a Football Game.

I would also take you to a Hockey Game with the Norfolk Admirals as well.

I’m a big seafood eater so The Big Easy of Norfolk seafood restaurant is my spot, and also Pier 88 Boiler Bag spot in Chesapeake. It’s so much we could do in a week in both cities.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Crystal Moustapha she is amazing person. She always said to me that you must have a foundation first. In that foundation they’re are values you must keep. Your circle who you keep around you is important. How you spend your time is also important. Always put education first is most important. If it wasn’t for her support and love I wouldn’t be where I am today.
