About this submission

Thrillers are definitely my favourite genre of film, yet I don't see a great deal of people of colour within them or at the forefront of the story. Jordan Peele proved to us all with Get Out that people of colour deserve to be seen in this genre of film and I myself wanted to create a thrilling story whilst using a character that actually looked like me. Not only did this avoid predictability but it's prompted me to be more conscious of my casting choices and use the combination of genre and off the wall casting to my advantage.
