Shimmy Ahmed

London-based British-Asian director Shimmy Ahmed has built up a portfolio which demonstrates a real strength for capturing youths in their natural habitats.

Unsurprisingly, this has brought her to the attention of the style-oriented commissioners of the fashion realms but she's also scored success on the short film circuit, and directed a number of pop promos.

Jamaal Monarch
"Love's A Joke, I'm the Butt of It"
This perspective-challenging promo from Jamaal Monarch plays with its viewers' sense of direction in addition to their expectations. Directed by Shimmy Ahmed, the film offers an insight into a couple's upside-down relationship, beset by unrequited love and internal pressures. Washes of neon light and ever-shifting camera angles give the film a dreamlike quality, as rapper Monarch delivers lines which are posturing and vulnerable by turns.
