Planet Class Podcast Reviews ‘One Leg In One Leg Out’ Film

International youth guests discuss the acclaimed film One Leg In One Leg Out and the misconceptions about sex workers and the trans community on the Planet Classroom Podcast.

Resilience and dedication pave the path for those willing to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. In the new episode of the Planet Classroom Podcast entitled Pride and Prejudice, Orb, the show’s virtual host, unites the creator of the acclaimed film, One Leg In One Leg Out (now screening on the Planet Classroom Network YouTube Channel), along with international youth voices to explore the human rights of sex workers and transgender people. What happens when a transgender woman wants to become a social worker so she can help other girls in her position stay safe and turn away from that way of life? I think what really makes this film so inspiring is that it shows the gritty reality of those marginalized in society, particularly transgender individuals. says Julian from California. I have to admit that before watching this film I didn’t have a good image of people with these kinds of jobs, but the film made me realize that in some cases they don’t have these jobs because they want it, it’s because they need it, notes Natalia from Mexico.

VEVA Sound X Quansic

VEVA Sound announced Tuesday that users of its platform are now able to register for an ISNI number for free.

An ISNI is an International Standard Name Identifier, a number uniquely identifying an individual in the music industry.

VEVA Sound verifies archived projects for clients. By partnering with Quansic, a leader in ISNI services, to facilitate registrations, it is now easier for creators to get credit and payment for their work.

FX Nuttall, the founder of Quansic, said the partnership made perfect sense for the company, as both Quansic and VEVA Sound share a vision that creators should be able to be identified easily and early in the creative process.

“As this partnership continues into the future, we are enthusiastic about introducing VEVA Collect’s users to our products — starting with ISNI registration before addressing the allocation of ISRC for Recordings and BOWI for Works,” Nuttall said. “We at Quansic are focused on enabling 100% identifier coverage for all, and our friends at VEVA provide an unprecedented opportunity for the independent creative community to do just that.”

President of VEVA Sound Deborah Fairchild said she is excited about the partnership and for the new opportunities for artists and creators who use VEVA Collect for payment for their work.

“FX Nuttall is widely respected in our industry, and we are proud to avail his expertise to our users through Quansic,” Fairchild says. “We believe it is imperative that we empower creatives with every resource available to receive authenticated credit for their work.

VEVA Sound was founded in 2002 and works to spearhead the movement to define, create and implement the standards for how sound is preserved and monetized. They now have offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville and London where they work with clients to verify and archive audio and metadata.

New iann dior Music Video

21-year-old rapper iann dior released a new music video for his song “Prospect” on Tuesday. It can be seen here!

The song features Lil Baby and was featured on Spotify playlists like Rap Caviar, Get Turnt and New Music Friday, all helping to propel it to more than 41 million streams since its May release.

The gorgeously shot video is directed by Omar Jones and inspired by Chinese landscape, architecture and colors to tribute the obvious inspiration to the beat. According to the press release, dior’s plans to tour in Asia were cancelled because of the pandemic, so the music video was his next best choice to show love to his Chinese fans.

“Prospect” is just dior’s latest in a long line of hits in a short period of time. Growing up in Corpus Christi, he quickly learned he was a talented writer and decided to turn that talent into hip-hop music. His first song earned 10,000 streams and caught the attention of Taz Taylor, the founder of Internet Money.

He released “Cutthroat” in 2019 which racked up 13 million streams on SoundCloud. He then inked a deal with 10K Projects, with whom he released his first mixtape titled “nothing’s ever good enough.”

dior gives credit to J. Cole for inspiring him to make music.

“He showed me that I could use songs to tell my own story, just like he uses his songs to tell his story,” dior said.

“Prospect” can be found along with other hits like “Pretty Girls,” “Sick and Tired” and “Paradise” on his new album, “I’m Gone,” which was released in June.

ABOUT 1MORE USA

1MORE USA USA, established in August of 2014 was the brainchild of President, Dave Russel, and VP, Tim Burton who leveraged their knowledge of the consumer technology industry and overseas sourcing experience to partner with 1MORE USA China. The sole purpose is to bring 1MORE USA’s proven successful approach to consumer audio product design and development to the North American market. “Our goal is to occupy a new space in the world’s audio market by giving our users quality, affordability, style, and community,” says CEO and Co-Founder, Hsieh. 1MORE USA China was co-founded in 2013 by Hsieh, a former Foxconn executive who was instrumental in producing products like the Kindle and iPod. Disillusioned with low-value contract manufacturing, Hsieh wanted to develop a unique brand that would dispel the belief that products made-in-China couldn’t be of both excellent quality and value. From this idea of 1MORE USA was born.
