Picture Lock Radio: Ep. 91- Marisol Gomez-Mouakad, Stephanie Seldin Howard & the 2018 DCBFF Red Carpet

Happy Friday folks! This week on the show I’ve got Marisol Gomez-Mouakad, writer/director/producer of Angelica. The film deals with colorism and other issues in the Caribbean. I also have Stephanie Seldin Howard, director/producer of the documentary The Weight of Honor. It’s a film that looks at the courageous caretakers of veterans who have been catastrophically wounded in America’s longest war. I’m also going to the red carpet of the DC Black Film Festival to share some of the thoughts from filmmakers you’ve heard on the show as well as comic artist Sanford Greene and the hilarious, legendary Sinbad!  Plus, your Picture Lock Question of The Week from a couple weeks ago is read on the show.

Picture Lock Unlocked: 2018 DC Black Film Festival- MBLMTF panel

_MG_0171.JPG

Hey guys. Sorry I missed you last week! Before this Friday’s episode, I wanted to hit you with another unlocked episode. This year during the DC Black Film Festival we screened the documentary United Skates ahead of our Making Black Lives Matter Through Film Panel. You’ve already heard from co-director Dyana Winkler a couple of episodes ago, but I wanted you all to be able to hear the conversation as it was on stage, unedited. The panel was hosted by WHUR's EZ Street and panelists included: Dr. Erica L. James (professor Francis Marion), Damara Catlett (Principal at Raben Group), Reggie Brown (subject in the film), and Tim Gordon (film critic).

Tomorrow, you’ll have the opportunity to see the film during the Congressional Black Caucus if you live in the DC area. The link to the film screening, which is free, is in the show notes. So if I haven’t promoted this film enough, here’s one more opportunity to check it out. I hope you enjoy the 2018 Making Black Lives Matter Through Film Panel just after the screening of United Skates and let me know your thoughts on the conversation!

Kevin Sampson

The fact that Kevin Sampson is not just a film critic, but a writer, producer, and director as well makes his understanding of cinema even better. Coming from a theoretical and hands on approach, he understands both sides of the struggle of viewing and creating great works. After receiving an MFA in Film & Electronic Media from American University in Washington, D.C in 2011, Kevin took his love for film to the next level by creating and producing Picture Lock, an entertainment website, podcast, and hour long film review TV show that runs on Arlington Independent Media’s public access station in Arlington, VA. The show covers new releases, classic films, and interviews with local filmmakers in the DMV area. He is also a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association and African American Film Critics Association. He is currently looking forward to filming his first feature film in the near future. He believes that film is one of the most powerful art forms in the world, and he hopes that he can use the craft to inspire others and make a difference in it.

Picture Lock Radio: Ep. 90- Noor Gharzeddine, Ramaa Mosley, Tiffany Bartok, & Juliet Lammers

Happy Friday folks! I'm back after a brief rest from the 2018 DC Black Film Festival. (Which was dope) This week on the show, I’ve got the director of “Are You Glad I’m Here” Noor Gharzeddine on the show to talk about the film with an unlikely pairing. Ramaa Mosley, writer/director/producer of “Tatterdamelion”, drops in to talk about her mystery/thriller! If you know any beauty influencers, you’re going to want to listen to my chat with director Tiffany Bartok of “Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story” which highlights the life of the man who was giving beauty tips before Instaglam was a thing! Finally, I talk with producer/director Juliet Lammers about her film “Studios, Lofts, and Jam Spaces” which portrays said locations and what they mean to Montreal based artists. Plus, your Picture Lock Question of The Week from a couple weeks ago is read on the show.

Happy Monday? I'm late with the post because I was at the 2018 DC Black Film Festival! What an awesome time and experience! I can't wait for next year...like I'm literally making plans already.

This did hit the radio airwaves Friday and while it's dates with the late post, it's certainly worthy of checking out. Today I talk w/ co-director/producer of United Skates, Dyana Winkler. Be sure you catch the unlocked version of our convo by subscribing to the podcast and going back an episode. I also talk with writer/director of Stevie’s Aliens, Austin Harris and geek out on infusing child-like wonder into his film. I'll talk with director and animator of BP v B, Omar Lewis, about his hand-drawn animation. I'll close with director of The Girl With No Brain, Royce Adkins, who took inspiration from the news and made a cool sci-fi short. All great interviews with folks doing it big in animation and sci-fi!
