I had the pleasure of being part of a short film named “Ingrained”. It was directed by @chronicles.of.tj and stars @meghnaland in the lead role. She’s a natural, endlessly talented and here to get you in your feels. Check out the movie on Amazon Prime! And look out for cameos from yours truly and a few other familiar faces🙊
Today is the day! #intothespiderverse Is out! Support a wonderfully inclusive film made by super talented humans, especially @backseateditor, the Associate Editor.
It’s been his life for the past few years and has a few big life milestones for him. He got a production baby, Calvin (watch my nephew get his first studio feature film credit!) AND his vocal on-screen debut. (Stay for the bit after the credits!) He’s wanted this ever since he “wanted to make cartoons” when we were tiny kids and he entertained everyone with his ridiculous voices. We may still be tiny but will always have big dreams. Excited to finally see this one come true!
So proud of all of the credited (and uncredited) work @backseateditor (and Calvin) did on this film! 🕷🕸❤️
UPDATE: We have just surpassed 10k!! We are over the moon excited!!! Thank you everyone for the support, contributions, follows, and shoutouts. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for each and every one of you! Because of you, we are getting closer to our goal of making this film and open up the conversation on hard topics like sexual assault in its many forms. There’s still time to share our link and spread the news about our fundraiser. Copy/paste from our bio, we can’t wait to keep climbing to our fully funded mark!
We want to shoutout the amazing crew that helped us make our promo video on our fundraising site (link in bio). Camera: @cferjordan

The sexiest man in the world and Idris Elba
This guy came up to me and said "Hi, I'm Idris" what a humble guy. Was a pleasure to get invited to 10 Downing Street to hear Idris talk about diversity in the film industry along with the @britishfilminstitute. As a black aspiring filmmaker from East London it has definitely inspired me to carry on telling stories and maybe one day young filmmakers will come to events just to listen to me speak. "Talent is everywhere, opportunities aren't". Don't watch that suitcase. Had a flight to catch.
