The creative industry and especially the film industry has a severe lack of diversity. We see it every day when we look at the content on our screen and the crew on our set. Being a person of colour and a director I've been reminded of this many times. Most notably when a creative agency partner made the friendly suggestion for me to change my name so it sounded more like a director and less brown.
I believe this isn't good enough and it's everyone's responsibility to change this. From producers to creative agencies and especially clients.
I aim to create work with a diverse look that is created by an equally diverse team.
