Welcome to BlueSpark Collaborative
BlueSpark Collaborative, LLC is a media company formed by award-winning filmmaker Llew Smith and Australian psychosocial researcher and psychotherapist Dr. Annie Stopford.
In our work we seek to produce high quality films that challenge perceptions of race, encourage new intercultural conversations, and examine connections between mental and physical health and the underlying structures in American society that foster inequality.
As a new independent documentary company our philosophy is to ‘spark’ new collaborations with other filmmakers, researchers, intellectuals and activists to create change.
We are committed to supporting and mentoring young and early career documentary filmmakers and researchers whenever possible, particularly young people of color.
