According to the director, ‘Whatever is standing between you and your chance at success is an impostor, kill it, hence the title Kill The Impostor’.
The story follows the struggle of a seemingly successful writer played by Susan Echa who is on a deadline to deliver another write-up to her agent after many failed attempts in four years. She indeed attempts to write something when she sits in front of her laptop, in the hope to get back on the horse of the critically acclaimed writer title.
When her agent calls to ask about the progress of the book, she only has one answer.
The film also stars Patrick Dibuah and Precious Akpos, it was produced by Joshua Olaolu, Nwani Orire has the creative producer credit, Damilola Aleje as Associate Producer, Vincho Nchogu as Production Consultant and Nostalgia Media is the Production company.
One unique selling point of the film, besides the very engaging and relatable story, is its cinematography, which was masterfully crafted by TAJ himself, whose creative choices in the lighting and production design further accentuate the mis-en-scene and the story world that is peculiar to the characters.
If you know how many books and films I have written in my parallel life... The Impostor has to die walahi!
This looks like you will be giving a lot of visual value on the screen and will to a certain extent satiate your audience with your presentation.
I love that your creative choices in lighting and mis-en-scene propel the narrative arch forward and visually accentuates the story. Well done.
