FILM EXCLUSIVE: Lino Brwn’s “Somebody In Nobody” featuring Jodie Smith

Lino ‘Brwn’ Asana is a born and raised Cameroonian filmmaker now based in San Francisco. I was excited to receive an exclusive peek into Lino’s world and his current project. For several weeks, I enjoyed our Skype calls back and forth, covering his life and passions. His latest work is a short film titled SOMEBODY IN NOBODY, starring the gorgeous Jodie Smith. I was granted a first look at the trailer and was immediately drawn in by the magical set and surrounding mystery that briefly existed during those seconds of watching. As a result, I just had to ask Lino a couple of questions touching on his life and work in order to understand a bit more of the man behind the beautiful visuals.
