Pictures From The Set of Switch
Often in life, things are not the way they seem and a hurried judgement or conclusion may precipitate regret, agony and disaster. Watch before you leap. This is the story of Switch.
Switch is a ten-minute short film that unfolds practically without dialogue, except for pleasantries exchanged by the lead male character and his pals towards the end. A captivating and hilarious piece, it makes a case for tolerance and peaceful co-existence.
The story is driven home through Mery Uche and Imoh Ubong (Slow Ice).
Switch is written, produced and directed by Fortune Kezi Ejim, the award-winning producer/director of The Strangers, a short film; which won three awards (Best Cinematography, Best Directing and Best Sound) at the 2014 International Short Film Festival, InShort.
A few years ago, his short film script, Choice, won a N1 million grant at the HOMEVIDA Awards and was subsequently made into a film. Fortune Kezi Ejim; a Port Harcourt-based film-maker; also worked as the DOP for the video of Tiwa Savage’s Ifewagbona. He has shot several projects for popular plus up-and-coming colleagues and is warming up for the release of his first feature film, The Changer starring Kalu Ikeagwu, Seun Akindele, Uti Nwachukwu amongst others.
