Hello everybody, what’s up? You’re listening to the Roobla Podcast with me, Tom Salmon! The show that dives into music, film and games and everything else in between.
My guest on this week’s episode is Erika Davis-Marsh who wrote, directed and produced her latest award winning short film CODA (2019) starring Kerrynton Jones, Ryan Lane and CJ Jones. The film has been screened at the Cleveland International Film Festival, ReelAbilities, LA Shorts and many more!
We jumped into Erika’s film festival experience, how she worked with deaf actors and the deaf community to tell an authentic story centring on a child of deaf adults and her decision to turndown a prestigious aeronautical scholarship to follow her lifelong passion for filmmaking and dance.
You can follow and check out Erika’s short films on Vimeo right now!
