A special shout out to my man Anthony Q. Artis for shooting these behind the scenes snippets. In this video, check out the on-set footage from Scene 7F, Take 3 as I work with Dorian and Simone on the timing and rhythm of the scene.
Ava DuVernay’s latest film “Selma” is awesome. It’s been a pleasure watching the journey from marketing maven to award-winning filmmaker, including the first African-American woman to win Best Director at Sundance (for her film “Middle of Nowhere”).
“Selma” will be released wide on January 9th. In the meantime, check out our podcast interview with Ava from March 2011 on the eve of the release of her first narrative feature, “I Will Follow”
