You’re a filmmaker about to kick off filming for your feature film. Suddenly, you lose your director. Then your equipment. Then your locations. Then most of your funding.

There’s no way you can continue, right? If you’re the filmmakers behind Smoke, this is just more of a reason to keep on! Writer & director Mackleen Desravines and DP & editor Doryan Sparkman are joined by actors Reece Odum and Shakira Day to talk about the making of the film and how they pushed through all the challenges they were presented along the way.

Also, make sure to go check out the film October 20th at 7 PM at the AMC 16 North Dekalb! Grab tickets here:
