WHO WE ARE
Hi! My name is Rimsha Khan and along with the rest of my team, I am seeking to produce an expository documentary titled Jordan Aloye as part of our final year BA Film major project.
what our documentary is about
Our documentary follows the inspirational story of a young boy named Jordan Aloye in his pursuit to turn around his life and inspire young individuals facing similar problems to those he previously experienced.
Growing up on an estate in Elthorne, London, Jordan faced a challenging upbringing. Immersed in an environment notorious for gang and knife crimes, he was caught carrying a knife by the police at the age of 16.
Determined to make a real difference to his life, Jordan joined a youth mentoring programme called 'Ambitious Academy'. Here, he was provided with the opportunity to pursue his passion for acting by starring in 'Drawn Out' - a major short film project about gang culture produced by Ambitious Academy in partnership with Fully Focused Productions and Arsenal in the Community.
Initially premiered at London's famous Regent Street Cinema, the short film has since gone on to be a huge success, gaining over 2.4 million views on Youtube.
OUR motivations for making THIS DOCUMENTARY
By documenting the story of how Jordan overcame a challenging upbringing to pursue his passion for acting, we would love to be able to provide a real message of hope and belief that anything is possible to a younger generation. We particularly want to use Jordan's message to inspire those caught up in or stuck in negative situations that they don't necessarily want to be part of. We want our documentary to show them that they too can achieve their dreams, no matter what their current circumstances are.
