Two Black Male Leads Needed for Short Film Collaboration in London

Two Black Male Leads Needed for Short Film Collaboration in London

London, UK
Listed by View details

A short drama film about two young men who connect in an unusual way. This film presents black lives in earnest and without trauma, a trope which is difficult to find in mainstream films about black lives and the black experience.
The finished product will spur a live and online film festival with similar themes. I am an independent filmmaker looking for likeminded creatives who want to join this exciting venture.
