Director Statement

I made my first feature in 1999. I needed to start seeing non-stereotyped people of colour on the big screen. Offending Angels did it the hard way. I made the film low budget, took it to Cannes Film Market and landed a sales agent. I thought I’d done it, fireworks going off in my head. After all I’d been through, I wasn’t expecting what happened next.

The sales agency Ardent International went down, taking my film with it. It took me a long time to recover from the car crash that proved to be, with the tax man coming after me as well.

Graduating film school, I wanted to make a film I hadn’t seen before. I also wanted to tell a non-white story and work with an actress I’d been through drama school with, Natasha Bain. I wrote a film I knew I could shoot on a shoestring, armed as I was with a crew I’d met at film school.

Greys was shot in seven days, all over London. I’m really proud of it. I think it might have been before its time though. I got into a festival and was picked up by a sales outfit who turned out to be a rip off. It cost me a lot of money I didn’t have and I physically and mentally had to put it in a drawer and move on.

But events, opportunities and digital distribution have all changed beyond recognition in the interim, so I thought I’d bring it out, dust it off and see what might be possible. I knew the film had an audience, if I could just reach it.
