5Q's w/Shelby Baldock "Faceless but Remembered" Director


MONDAY BLOCK N | 1:00 pm

#1: Can you describe your movie and why somebody should see it in less than 280 characters?

- Faceless, but Remembered is a wild thriller that challenges the idea of how a kidney transplant recipient should act in post-transplant life. It’s based on my real experience and the things no one wants to talk about. It’s entertaining, I swear!

#2: What do you want the Borrego Springs Film Festival audience to know about your film that isn’t obvious from its title?

- It's about kidney transplants and the weird cult-like world of post-transplant life, and also having fun with genre.

#3: What is your movie making background? Tell us about yourself.

- I grew up in Memphis loving film, making home movies as a kid and getting more serious as I got older. Eventually, I got to work for the Recording Academy, travel with the North Mississippi Allstars, shooting music videos, travel videos, a concert film, etc. and also co-founded a Memphis-based film co-op, Piano Man Pictures. That led me to Chapman University, which led me to Borrego Springs!

#4: What was the biggest lesson learned in getting your film made?

- You have to step up and make decisions. Telling people what you want and believing in your team. There's never any downtime. You can always work and make it better.

#5: What does the future hold for your film and you?

- I'm currently in post-production on a feature documentary, Bombie, writing, editing editing editing, and trying to get a new film off the ground.
