Femi has recently written, co-directed, co-produced his first feature film ‘It’s A Lot’. In his experience as an actor, Femi decided there was a lack of projects portraying a rounded view of the Black British Experience. He produced a semi-autobiographical short film called Fresh off the Boat, which was nominated as part of the 2009 Film London ‘ Best of Borough’ awards.
Spacey Blak is a producer/sonwriter who discovered another outlet for creativity…filming.

Jamie has directed and worked with Sony, i-D and directed a video for Rejjie Snow who is singed to Elton john’s record label.
Victor Adebodun’s media career started at post-production house MPC, which provided him with a basis to direct and produce music promos, documentaries, films and television. At MPC, Victor worked within the technology department of the VFX department, working on films such as Harry Potter and the James Bond franchise. Seeding how these films where made from the ground up inspired Victor to want to create his own content.
