10/10: Jeff Malmberg

I feel like I spend a ridiculous portion of my day scribbling frantically on index cards. An idea for a scene, something someone said, a feeling I’m trying to get across. All written quickly to try to archive that thing in my head. Here’s a picture of my scribbly index card when Transmissions asked for a 10/10. Notice “Dig!” gets crossed out when I realize it came out too early for the list. And “Paris Return” – a brilliant double portrait – gets  taken off the list once I remember “Dear Zachary”…

– Jeff Malmberg, director of Marwencol and co-director of Spettacolo


Jeff Malmberg and Chris Shellen’s Spettacolo is currently playing in theaters around the country.
