Through the Lens: Marrakech

Everyone needs a holiday every so often. Of course, that ‘holiday’ can come in many forms, but I guess the key theme is that of a break from the norm. To do something different, to relax, to turn up, and to unwind. A short holiday I had this year was to Marrakech, and asides from […]

London Heat – Cardy Films | Short Film

What unfolds are a series of events that changes the average perception of young urban life.

Shout out to Ola, Olan, Waiki and Narrow Path Films.
