Creative Directing and Casting 'Born Fruit,' written and directed by Bukky Bakray. 'BornFruit' is a short fashion film about a mourning woman's imagination as she searches for answers to life in her grandmother's legacy: a handbag. The bag contained life, which was continued once it was recovered by the young woman. Having two roles on this project meant I was involved in the entire process from beginning to end: from researching and creating treatments that explained the storyline to street casting the ensemble known as 'The Boys of Summer' to overseeing the set production and aesthetics.
