Comment

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 PR After Show: Director Talya Tibbon

talya tibbon.jpg

Talya Tibbon is an award-winning director, producer, and writer. She’s worked in four continents documenting wide-ranging subjects such as street gangs, mass shooters and those who survive their crimes, and human trafficking. She’s currently in the early production stages of a film about her father and his work identifying soldiers lost in battle. Her most recent film, “Amanpour — On Sex and Love in Berlin,” aired as part of CNN Originals in early 2018.

It was great to have her on last week’s episode of Picture Lock, and it was awesome to have her stick around for the after show. The after show is where I ask my guests two questions that cuts straight to great takeaways for how to improve the PR and marketing for your production and they throw one at me. 

Talya definitely had great insights for her documentary that deals with a niche topic that has to fight against apathy in a big way. So let’s get into the interview w/ Talya, right after this reminder that you can take one of the best online courses out for indie filmmakers in regards to PR and Marketing.
