Meet the Filmmaker: Jamon Tolbert, “Trickster”


Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?

JT: I became a filmmaker because I always had stories that I wanted to share, and I had always admired how film could capture an idea and portray it to an audience.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?

JT: This movie “Trickster” was screened at a local 48hr film festival in Denver. My visions and aspirations for this film are currently “not set in stone;” however, I hope share the story with all who will listen.

Q: What else are you working on?

JT: Currently, I am working on a short drama film about the perils of teen pregnancy. With that focus, I am taking the challenge and developing the skill of working with a larger crew in the production of my short films.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?

JT: Often times, many people say that the films I produce seem uncharacteristic of my age, whether that be due to skill or the ideas I work with. This may be considered as a strange fact about me.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?

JT: For anyone interested, my work can be viewed here: youutube.com/c/jprproductions

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?

JT: The Emerging Filmmakers Project has given me a beautiful and beneficial outlet to expose my work and given me connections for those that were once and are like me.

“Trickster” will be screened at the October 2016 Emerging Filmmaker’s Project!
