Born in Nelspruit in the 80's - walking to school and back again barefoot in the red African dust - watching movies was a distant and foreign pass-time.
Yes, we had TV's back then and I knew who He-man was, but there was no film culture as such. If someone made a pop-culture movie-reference I would just stare blankly at them, silently judging them for the crutch they were leaning on.
Gravity-defying comic book heroes, dressed in primary-coloured tights, held little appeal to me. Truth is what I loved, even - and especially - when those truths were dark.
At the start of 2023 I was accpeted into the Screen Progression Programme with Screen Education Edinburgh and have been at the facets of filmmaking, culminating in writing and directing my own short form - Chelle - which you are welcome to view below.
