First Feature Outing 

In an exclusive interview with SHOCK Newsroom, Dolapo Adigun talks about her excitement for the movie and what audiences can expect when they see it on the big screen.

Her excitement about her first feature

Directing my first feature, and it’s a thriller. It’s a no-dull-moment, fast-paced story. What an incredible way to begin. And it’s a story written by my mentor, Mr. Niyi.

 Any personal connections to this story?

I wouldn’t say I do. But, Mr. Niyi, the writer does. He got the idea for the story while waiting at a hospital reception after his father had just been diagnosed with Cancer. So it’s a pretty incredible and special project.

What are the themes that the feature explores?

Survival, family, brotherhood, heroism and courage, ethical dilemma e.t.c

Translating spectrum characters of good and evil on screen

Interpret each scene as best as possible, block actors and props in the most artistic position and timing in the hope that that’s enough for the audience to put themselves in the character’s shoes and choose a side. I want everyone to actually think deeply and say “That could have been me, and what would I do if it was”
