Pre-production & Shooting episode 01

Malube's Headshot.jpg

Director | Malube

Uhindu-Gingala

Malube is an accomplished artist: director, writer, actor & content creator, hailing from Montreal, Quebec. She lives and breathes her artistry. She’s fallen in love with bringing female-centred stories to life in whatever form of storytelling she can. It is important for these stories to be told through a female lens. 
A special thank you to Roselyn for trusting Malube to collaborate on artistic visions for episode one of Fail Better. Malube’s hope is that stories told by females continue to encourage empowerment within the known and unknown obstacles women face. She is thrilled to be taking part in narratives where women are finally being seen as multidimensional & complex human beings on screen.
She will continue to contribute and create stories that that highlight the complex, human experience. She will continue to reclaim her time.

Artem does cinematography-related jobs for narrative film, television and web content, such
as camera operating, cinematography, gaffing, gripping, and assisting camera. He has shot live
events, engagement and music videos for 5+ years before he started being involved in the film
industry. Now, he's a Toronto Film School student going into my last term, having already shot
short films, POCs, web series, live shows and assisting camera on a feature film. He was very
excited when he was asked by the DP of this project, Angel Navarro III, to camera assist for him
and gladly took the opportunity. When he's not doing that, he tends to spend time on watching
awesome films or having a good time with friends.
