Our first remote recording, and it’s a spectacular one. We’re joined by director Tayarisha Poe to discuss Rian Johnson’s Brick. Tayarisha takes April step by step through the process of getting her first feature film financed and produced, Selah And The Spades. She discusses going through the Sundance Labs and taking joy from her mentors ripping her project apart. She also talks about creating a unique world in her own film, with its own original language and look, on the smallest possible budget.
You can watch Selah And The Spades on Amazon Prime on April 17th
If you haven’t seen Brick…it’s good!
AND, if you want to check out April’s Staff Pick – watch Coralie Fargeat’s Revenge
