Since, 1985 The Motion Picture Company, Inc. has been a vital conduit in the world of motion picture and television production. In the early years, the company focused mainly on producing film and TV projects in Hollywood, New York and Florida. The company based Headquarters in Orlando on the Disney/MGM Studio Backlot. When production “tools” were needed to accomplish the highest level of creative filmmaking, MPC stepped up to the “plate” and developed an equipment division allowing other production companies to rent highly specialized motion picture gear for their projects.
The Motion Picture Company was hired to oversee the construction, manage and staff a studio, develop programming, produce episodic television for other production companies, consult major studio motion picture productions and create a marketing and media relations division specifically working as consultants for Walt Disney World and Disneyland's Special Events.
Kietta Mayweather Gamble has been an entrepreneur from the day she stepped onto the Florida A&M University campus in Tallahassee, FL. Her first business was selling homemade (from scratch) Sweet Potato pies, becoming known as “The Pie Lady”. Her as yet unrevealed “special ingredient”, made the pies so delectable that her business spilled over into mail order, shipping pies nationwide. Pie Business aside, Kietta handled her “school business” and graduated in three years with a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Business Economics and continued on to receive her Masters Degree in Business and Administration of Educational Programs from Nova University.
Realizing how her life experiences, both high and low times, could inspire others and seeing the supportive reactions from her peers as she shared her story, Kietta Mayweather Gamble was motivated to share her wealth of knowledge via the power of television and to this end, “Real Talk With Kietta” was created and totally self financed. Scarred with her own obstacles; divorced parents, serious family dysfunction, an abusive relationship, poverty, bad business investments and post partum depression, Kietta can truly meet her audience “where they are”.
Real Talk With Kietta joins The Motion Picture Company’s All-Star clients list which over the past 35 years has included: Disney; ABC (Monday Night Football); NBC (NBA Men’s and Women’s Olympic Basketball); BET (Live from Downtown Disney); MTV (Spring Break); E! Entertainment’s Parade of Stars, etc., and prepares for major market launch 2nd quarter 2006.
