When I asked Marcus for silly pose He Delivered!

What are the 4Q’s?

  • Name your favorite films of all time (limit 3)
  • Name a film you think is underrated
  • Name a film you think is overrated
  • Name a lesser-known film that you think people should seek out

Marcus Baker wrote, directed and produced the delightfully original film “Counterweight” that played at the Sherman Oaks Film Festival in 2020.  I’m proud to say that this film joined the Discover Indie Film TV Series on Amazon Prime Video, in Season 4 Episode 5, playing with two equally visionary films.

Watch his film and then listen to this interview and I’m sure you will agree that Marcus is talented and delightful.  We get to learn about his inspirations and personal history, leading us right up to when he hit the festival circuit during a global pandemic.
