Filmmaker Spotlight: Tanecia Britt is a Creative Genius

Tanecia Britt is a creative content creator who has found her market on the web.  Now age 36, Tanecia was once living off the strength of willpower and her determination to become a full-time director. In pursuit of her goals, the self-forming entrepreneur hit the country. Working as a marketing and campaign administrator for the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago then freelancing in Atlanta, Britt soon found herself networking among some of the sharpest eyes in the South. Celebrity photographer Donna Pernell shared insight about the inner workings of the industry, which motivated Britt to declare herself as an assistant director and production assistant. Continuously networking and building her name, she found herself under Eyal Sivan and Haim Bresheeth, professors and mentors at the University of East London. Under them, she learned to shoot with a purpose and to take her time with film-making. Her creativity and a relentless drive to succeed opened a niche for internet films in which she began to market herself on the web.

One of her greatest works to date, is "Flowers Don't Grow in England". I was able to screen the short film on Vimeo, and it is certainly not lacking in action, intensity, and plot lines. The film, which she is working to develop into a full-length feature, was completed before the pandemic, and hones in on the story of the black women, linked by blood and trauma, navigating East London, and the grit, fear, and survival that comes with that. Seeing the elements of life which could quickly destroy a woman was only clay for Britt, permitting her to mold these experiences into cinema while influencing others to see life with more than just the natural eye. Lifestyle it has become, Tanecia Britt is a portal for all things film can reveal through life, cycling images through the lenses of her crafted mental.

Though free-spirited, Britt's reality stood like walls around her in which she could only battle and battle alone. Her loyalty to her family brought her back to the United States, where she has emerged as one of the most rouge yet promising filmmakers in the area. 

In addition to "Flowers Don't Grow In England", Tanecia Britt has a number of other works under her belt. In fact, she's been a never-ending machine, cranking out films, including her feature "School Without Walls," along with a number of shorts and music videos.
