Praise for Ripples
Genuine display of our current reality. Beautifully directed, beautifully written, this is amazing. Entertaining and emotional, informational and educational. Well done.
Too many deaths. Too many wrongfully accused. Too much pain caused to people because of the colour of the skin.
I would like to invite you to watch a Short Film where Spoken Word Artist Paul Gialo and I teamed up to create a visual poem about being black in Britain, the racism he notices in the country, the importance of the Black Lives Matter Protests and his own personal experiences with racism. This isn’t a trend, this is much more. Feel the ripples of prosperity.
In Secondary school, I was that kid that seemed to never be paying attention. Seemingly in my own world of drawings and act structures for scripts I was writing, when I should’ve been focussing on the lesson in-front of me. I’ve had an urge to tell stories since writing my first short story at eleven, which I strongly believe is the worst story that’s graced this world. But, I was told by a great mentor to keep trying until I “Fail Better”.
When I left school, I immediately knew I wanted to conquer the world of directing. After building my first directing my first play for the National Theatre Connections festival, and getting instant gratification of praise from others, I was hooked. I am so happy that I made that decision. I do the work I do because I love it. I like the industry. I like the people I meet. I like to talk the industry. I embrace the metaphors and symbolism. I like to make the world a better place for an hour or two.

© TNT Film Ltd 2020 | Made in London, UK.
A film about perspective, family and cannabis. A single mother grapples with the antics of her teenage son, putting their relationship to the test. After a trying day, can a change of heart bring them closer together?
Telling a story without words presented a rewarding challenge. It lets us reach as many people as possible while exploring the cinematic medium at its purist. Without dialogue, we used camera movement to create a rhythm. The film explores the theme of perspective – and crucially how perspectives can change – so we crafted an image system around this; making frequent use of POV; giving perspective to characters at important moments – and life to the inanimate objects that are key to conveying the narrative.
To enhance the ideas of shifting perspective further, my friend and standout cinematographer Matt suggested we introduce some heavy lens breathing (an affectation of older lenses) and after some research we opted to shoot on Hawk V-Series anamorphics. Though this beautiful glass presented endless (truly endless) challenges during production, it allowed us to contrast the different dimensions in the frame. I like playing with depth; and these lenses created a clear distinction between fore- middle and background. A huge thank you to Arri for all their support.
The subject matter is sure to irk some viewers, but it’s important to recognise that there is no clear message to this film. It is a portrait; taking an objective look at a perfectly ordinary family – and how drugs enter into the equation in a way that’s true to life today, but without passing comment about what these events mean. It’s up to the audiences to decide how they feel about the choices these characters make. With the film, I hope to add to the ongoing debate about drugs in British society, but mainly I hope to entertain as many viewers as possible.
If the film finds an audience, it will be the first in a trilogy of projects that explores drug use in Britain; how it is now and how, for better or for worse, it might be in the future.
