Friday nights ‘Kojey Radical’ short film world premiere was fantastic…The Photographers Gallery off Oxford St in Soho was the perfect place to hold this happening, what unfolded was something really special.
As the doors opened to the gallery Alex Rita Dj’d setting the scene in the dark red lit screening room. At one end of the room a projection of bold red, yellow and green colours cycled through at an almost imperceivably slow shift. Once everyone in the audience was settled Natasha Plowright from The Photographers Gallery and Colm Forde from Doc'n'Roll Festival introduced Dean's latest short ‘Kojey Radical’...
Then we were rollin’...
The large sound system installed specially for the event by Sonny Evans enabled the films sounds track to boom out whilst the images unfolded in front of peoples eyes. The reflected light from the projection flicker lit the faces of the audience, all were taking it in…Even though the film is relatively short it’s pace is hypnotic and the piece is very atmospheric triggering a range of responses, it is deep but also funny at times too.
Straight after the screening Kojey and Dean were joined by Q&A host Stephanie McLaren-Neckles from creative platform Lets Be Brief. Through the Q&A many points were discussed, making of the film of course but then the conversations expanded wayout.
The night comprised of two screenings and two Q&A’s.
DocnRoll will release footage of the Q&A soon watch this space… The whole event was a MOMENT…A positive vibe… To everyone who came, helped and got a kick out of it...Thanks.
