We have been listening to stories from filmmakers about how to make films using smartphones, but what about actors? What is their perspective being on the other side of the lens of a smartphone camera as a professional actor? We discuss this topic and the topic of the acting profession in-depth with Avaah Blackwell. Her performance in Figment directed by Mithran Maharajan was moving. Figment was nominated for Best Film in the inaugural Global Mobile Film Awards 2017. The film was a 21 minute story about a woman who is held captive in the basement of her husband’s home.
