Precipice

Check out this short film from young black British filmmaker Julius Amedume (photo below-left) - a director whose past short work we've previously featured on this site; So clearly, we think he's a filmmaker that you should probably be paying attention to, as he continues to build on his growing oeuvre of work, which comprises of some 7 short films since 2002, and 1 ultra-low-budget feature film in 2006 called A Goat's Tale (shot in Ghana, where he's originally from, as well as in London, where he's currently based).

Below is the 25-minute crime drama titled Precipice, which stars Haitian actor Jimmy Jean-Louis.

The synopsis reads:

It's the evening before Jasper Morgan's financial wrong doings become public and his co-conspirators are unsure if Jasper will talk or take the fall. So they fly in Roman, a 'fixer' who is hoping that this will be his last ever job. What should be a straightforward pick-up and drop-off for Roman is not, as Roman's unsuspecting target Jasper needs to make one last stop along the way.

Jimmy Jean-Louis plays Roman, and Martin Turner co-stars as Jasper Morgan.

Director Amedume made the film while at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in the UK.

Check out Amedume's Vimeo page, where you can take a look at samples of some of his other work.
