The two met last week at Shlepp Studios in London where Ayi read for the part although she was asked to play the part before their meeting. The Film deals with domestic and child abuse from a different angle. The young protagonist experiences her abusers actions as something supernatural while the reality of the real life monsters in our society is undoubtedly scarier than fiction.
It’s a comment on children who use their imaginations as a defense mechanism. Ayi is set to play the mother of the child in this short film. A role that calls upon her to really grasp the part and step out of her comfort zone.
Ayi spoke to Global News Ink. “When I was first told about the possibility of playing a role in this film I was a little afraid. I don’t see myself as an actress yet, or at least not a very good one, but everyone keeps telling me I can do it. Stevie (Shlepp Entertainment ltd) who is co-producing the movie encouraged me to do it. We have both spoken about the need for me to get my acting up to speed before FearChaser™ starts shooting next year and the plan was always to take roles in short films that would give me some experience. Still even with all of that this is a heavy part for a first timer and I am very nervous but very excited too. I am really excited about working with Flaminia especially after meeting her. I was already a big fan of her award winning film InsideOut.
When we got together she really took the time to explain my role and what was expected and she made me feel a lot more confident. She is such a passionate director and I know she would not work with me if she felt I could not do it.”
Ayi JIhu who just returned from a Tour of Canada working with Young Native Fashion™ also just finished shooting the new teaser trailer for Fear Chaser™.
We spoke to Flaminia Graziadei by phone from the Bulgarian Film Festival and she told us: “Ayi is a lovely girl and she will be perfect for the part. I was quite sure about it when I approached Stevie (Shlepp Entertainment Ltd) but once I and my associates met with her last week we all knew she would be perfect. She has a presence in front of the camera and there is no denying that. We start shooting in a few weeks and we are really lucky and happy to have Ayi in this film.
I Believe in Monsters starts shooting on July 27th 2013 in London. A lot of people will be interested to see how Ayi’s first cinematic encounter goes down.
