Timi Akindele-Ajani, a freelance filmmaker and photographer based in east London, has always been drawn towards storytelling and visual media. Having achieved his BA in Film Studies from University of Exeter, he went on to take part in the Create Jobs: Visual Storytelling programme, and has worked as a freelancer ever since. But alongside all of this, a side project has been bubbling away. For the past two years, he has collaborated with Vidette Adjorlolo and Ebun Sanusi to tell the stories of Black single mothers. The result is their recently released documentary The Dynamics of Black Single Motherhood, Black History Month. From finding contributors to landing funding, here Timi shares the process and challenges faced through that time, as well as his advice to others working on their own passion projects.
