Teaming up with Refinery29, Smith will executive produce, Soundscape, a music video series that pairs next-gen women filmmakers with up-and-coming musicians. 

Deadline reports that the series will include “one-of-a-kind visual mix-tapes that upend stereotypes.” Musicians will then get the opportunity to hit the road with their videos, kicking off a tour that starts at the Los Angeles Music Video Festival.
