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 Unlocked: John "Dr. Teeth" Tucker

This unlocked episode features my full conversation with John “Dr. Teeth” Tucker. John is a legend in hip hop music videos and has continued to evolve his career into narrative film now. “Pas Honteux” is his first venture into the scene and it’s a memorable entre. In this full interview, we dive deeper into his time directing music videos and capturing an era and culture of southern hip-hop and how that helped him be a visual storyteller. We also dig deeper into Pas Honteux.  If you’re a listener that's never heard of “Dr. Teeth”, go google him, catch up and enjoy. If you have heard of him, you’ll certainly get a kick out of this interview. Either way, it was a great conversation and I think you’ll enjoy hearing from an experienced filmmaker.

Don't forget the 2018 DC Black Film Festival call for entries is now open! The festival will be held August 16-18 at the Miracle Theatre in Southeast Washington, DC. Filmmakers can submit through FilmFreeway. Visit dcbff.org for more details!
