Another Short Shout! before the work day ends... does it ever even end?

Julius Amedume
It's the second short film that we've featured from young black British filmmaker Julius Amedume (photo left); 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 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 London, where he's currently based). Unfortunately, it's not a feature that's readily accessible here in the USA. It did play the international film festival circuit for a bit, and picked up a few awards.

But some of Amedume's short work can be viewed via his Vimeo page, which is where we've lifted both short films of his that we've featured on S&A.

Below, check out 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.
