The Maryland Morning Screen Test Presents Steve Blair
Wednesday, February 22, 2012, 7 p.m.
The Windup Space
12 W. North Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21201

Admission is Free and Drinks are Cheap

The best way to deal with serious issues is through comedy.  So says filmmaker Steve Blair, whose movie scripts add levity to potentially somber topics like marriage, religion, and history.  His 2010 comedy feature, I Do & I Don’t, shot entirely in Baltimore with actors Jane Lynch and Matt Serrvito, takes on pre-marriage counseling—stemmed from Blair’s own experience. Blair started in film production; two of his early projects were producing the feature dramas Mentor, starring Rutger Hauer as a condescending professor, and Red, a small town Sundance-selected drama starring Brian Cox. Now he works as a line producer for TV commercials, while writing on his own film scripts—including the ensemble comedy, Sweet Baby Jesus, a retelling of the Nativity story set in 1960s Bethlehem, Maryland—and publishes frequent Receipemails (ressa-pea-mails) about food via his cooking website, pulpkitchen.com.

On Wednesday, February 22, at 7 p.m., Steve Blair will talk film and food with WYPR’s Tom Hall in front of a live audience at the Windup Space on Baltimore’s North Avenue. We’ll screen clips of his locally-produced films and commercials and take audience questions. It’s free and open to the public.

The interview will be recorded to air on “Maryland Morning” on Friday, February 24, at 9:40 am. You can listen to other Screen Test interviews with filmmakers including Pierre and Jamyla Bennu, casting director Pat Moran, and Matt Porterfield at this link.
