My Mission Is… is a podcast series cohosted by Mission’s founder Karina Givargisoff, and singer-songwriter of the U.K. band Texas, Sharleen Spiteri.
This week’s My Mission Is… podcast guest is Sean Ellis. The British fashion photographer and film director took the world by storm with his youthful and imaginative artistic works throughout the 2010s. After getting his start assisting famed fashion photographer Nick Knight, Sean quickly established himself as a rare talent in the world of film and photography. He is the writer and director behind Academy Award-nominated short Cashback and British Independent Film Award recipient Metro Manila. He continues to make his mark on the film industry, screening his most recent film, the horror period piece Eight for Silver, at Sundance in January.
This week, Sean Ellis chats with Mission founder and editor-in-chief Karina Givargisoff and musician Sharleen Spiteri about the state of film during the pandemic, Sean’s own writing process and how to answer the question, “What’s next?”
