[Documentary] Director Janks Morton seeks London based interviews for ‘What Black Men Think’ sequel

[Documentary] Director Janks Morton seeks London based interviews for ‘What Black Men Think’ sequel

Janks Morton, Director of WHAT BLACK MEN THINK has recently been commissioned to make a sequel for the Documentary Channel (US). He is looking for street based interviews in London (with members of the black community) where two key questions are asked about stereotyping. http://whatblackmenthink.com/hoodwinked/

The questions are;

1. Name a positive stereotype about black people?

2. (Follow up question) Why do you feel that?

He would like to interviews to be shot on iPhones (or any other suitable technology). They should be on location (i.e. on the street) and they should be shot HORIZONTALLY. Ideally with 10 – 20 people interviewed. He is not looking for anything fancy. He just wants to get a variety of views about cultural stereotyping where black men are concerned.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A FILMMAKER TO PARTICIPATE. Janks is mainly interested in getting a breadth of opinions.

The clips will be featured in the documentary and any filmmakers whose work is included will be credited.

Submission deadline: April 14th (videos will need to be sent electronically).

Documentary synopsis
Hoodwinked will be an exploration of the most recent data being released by the US Census,DOJ, DOE, DOC and the CDC to highlight strides and achievements in the African American community. It will feature expert contributors, man on the street interviews, anchor desk headline reporting, and the return of Janks Morton and his “Board of Education” to examine further the symbiotic relationship between media, government and special interest, as they exploit imagery, statistics and data that too often presents a skewed perspective of the modern era African American experience.
