Picture Lock Radio: Ep. 96- Halloween, Middleburg Film Fest, Nick Gross, & Washington West Film Fest

What’s good folks!? I’ve got a packed show for you guys this week. The Middleburg Film Festival is going on this weekend and I talked w/ the founder and executive director, Sheila Johnson and Susan Koch, about what you can expect to see at one of my favorite fests! I talk with DMV actor Nick Gross about his career and how going after what he wants has helped him. I’ll post the after show segment I had with Nick in which he gave some great tips on how he addresses PR & Marketing with his career on Monday. Finally, I talk with the director of programming for the Washington West Film Festival, Ariel Lee. Ariel gave me the goods on what you can expect to see at the festival taking place in Reston next week.  But first, friend of the show and Epic Film Guy, Bryan Loy, stops by to give his thoughts on Halloween, which hits theaters this weekend.

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.

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 After Show: Julia Camara

It’s finally here! The Picture Lock After Show! In this segment of the show I talk with the guest I had on in more depth about the PR and Marketing for their production. I’m kicking this off with Julia Camara, writer/director/producer of “In Transit”. Julia was very vulnerable with where she is currently with PR & Marketing and the things she would do differently in the future. This is definitely worth the listen as you think about your production.
