Director/Editor/Producer/Artist: Victor Shakur

Working on this project is quite exciting yet very stressful. I have to take on three major roles on this project but that’s great because I will have full control of my project.

I am very excited for people to see the final video as a lot of hard work will be involved and the crew will put in effort to archive great results and I am very proud of them.

Camera Operator: Evan Fernando

After reading the script, I was very eager to get on with the shoot. The intensity of the story gives me the opportunity to use a variety of different shots to show the feel of the lead character. Making the audience feel the characters struggle is the main part that I wanted to get across in this video, so I will focus on using many close up shots throughout. Working on this project gave me the chance to work professionally and play out my role to the best of my ability.


Beat maker/ Artist: Joshua Francis

Working on this project was very exciting for me. I know I will enjoy every minute of the process from start to finish. The best part for me will be working along side the director and choosing the most appropriate sound for the project. This is a role that I will enjoy, but after working on this project, it will be definitely something I would consider taking on in the future.


Sound producer/ engineer: Dan Shute

It’s been a great experience working on this project. Although it’s a different genre of music from which i normally work on, i enjoyed every inch of it. The whole experience was easy because the track was already made. My job was just to record and mx the vocals and Victor is such a cool character to work with as he works hard to perfect his work. Looking forward to working on more projects with him in the future.
