We have already let you know that MJ Blackman is a filmmaker to watch, but as if that wasn’t enough we also took a few moments to fire some questions at him about his latest short film Facial. Check out our interview with MJ Blackman below and of course, don’t forget to also check out some of his other work on The Smalls such as his incredible short Wax (Smalls Award nominee, 2011) and Kilburn.
Meet MJ Blackman – a talented filmmaker with a unique voice. His stylish yet brutally honest filmmaking sets him apart from many and makes his work unforgettable for those who are fortunate to be touched by his creative genius.
The Smalls was honoured to partner with Sheffield Doc/Fest for the twentieth anniversay of this incredible festival. We were included on the judging panel for the Short Doc category and presented the award. For us the winning film encompassed all that makes documentary so special – it made us laugh, introduced us to new ideas and left us a little bit wiser about the world – all in 16 minutes! Congratulations to Joshua Izenberg from Ann Arbor, Michigan, for Slomo, the story of a former doctor set free by a pair of rollerblades.
