Director Statement

The vision for Ebony Hustle was to show the power we hold as individuals no matter the race or gender. Throughout this film you will see themes such as, self love, overcoming fear and gender equality. Our visual motifs display our main characters reassuring herself while facing conflict by simply just talking to herself “Bam Baby” as a confidence booster. This allows our character to push any doubt aside and follow through with her plans. Displaying the struggles of a person who decides to make change was an important element in this film, because large payoffs on the other end.

Aesthetically we wanted to create as much camera movement as the budget allowed. That sense of movement will really help the audience engage with the embedded struggle that takes place during the film and create no sense of comfort until the falling action.
