About this submission

In 'Interview with a Serial Killer,' a captive woman defies her misogynistic abductor, initiating a chilling psychological duel that unveils the disturbed mind of a murderer.

Born in the heart of Shreveport, Louisiana, Justus Richardson's journey is one marked by resilience, determination, and a unique perspective shaped by life's intricate tapestry. Raised in a single-parent household, Justus grew up with a keen eye that often found itself at odds with the mainstream narratives in entertainment. Instead, he saw the world through a lens that highlighted the deep-seated issues prevalent in his community - issues often overlooked or understated in popular media. Seeking to forge a path that would allow him to make a meaningful impact, Justus enlisted in the military at the age of 19. This decision wasn't just about serving his country; it was a pursuit of a higher calling, a quest to engage with the world in a significant way. The military experience, while invaluable, soon revealed its limitations in addressing the broader societal issues that Justus felt deeply passionate about. His tenure in the military came with its own set of challenges, the most significant being diagnosed with PTSD. This period, though fraught with difficulty, steered Justus towards a powerful medium of expression and healing - filmmaking. What began as a search for solace soon transformed into a profound realization: filmmaking was not just a creative outlet, but a potent tool to communicate his and many others' perspectives to the world. Justus' approach to filmmaking is as unique as his life story. He blends intense, yet visually stunning narratives with thought-provoking themes, creating works that are not just films but conversations. His goal is clear: to find that elusive common ground where storytelling and thought-provoking matters converge, engaging a diverse audience in the process. more...
