What a year it has been… But even a pandemic can’t stop filmmakers from flexing their creative muscles!
Join Ketan Majmudar (long time SCI-FI-LONDON supporter, filmmaker and voice actor) as he chats with Jaye Adams (indie horror filmmaker) and Sebastien Leibus (first-time filmmaker and Golden Mask winner of Roger Corman’s Lockdown Challenge) who harnessed the weird energy of suddenly being faced with a global lockdown and channelled them into no-budget all out filmmaking challenges.

Jaye Adams is an upcoming UK indie horror filmmaker. She’s been a lifelong fan of the genre and started teaching herself the art of filmmaking 2 years ago. In October last year Jaye wrote, directed and co-produced her first 3 minute proof of concept horror short, which this year won several awards, placed top 20 in Film Riot’s MakeFilm Challenge and selected to stream on Discover.Films platform. Jaye has several projects in the works for 2021 and has recently set up the Indie Horror Hub YouTube channel for indie horror filmmakers to learn, share their films, collaborate and have the best horror specific filmmaking content all in one darkly imaginative place.
Born in Bordeaux in 1977, study cinema for few years and then move to Paris in 2003. Working for television as a photographer, editing, voice over. Drop off tv in 2012, and then creating “Le Gorafi”, who became number one web satire newspaper in France. “Unlockdown” is my first movie and when I did i got a lot of movies in my head especially for example “12 monkeys” of Gilliam and the retrofuturist design in some sci-fi movies like City of Lost Children
