Traytown (JAFTA Block)

Newly-married Aria Sawyer is a charismatic and attractive young woman who is after one thing – a seat in Parliament – and she gets it. However, the sweet taste of victory quickly grows sour when her power-hungry husband, Dimitri, finds out about her on-and-off affair with Janelle Rose, a spunky female journalist. He offers a trade: his silence for her seat in Parliament.

Gareth Cobran

Nadean Rawlins

Gareth started off directing and shooting a myriad of music videos for international recording artistes, gaining exposure and familiarity within the industry. As his journey progressed, he decided to sharpen his skills specifically as a Director of Photography, telling unique stories and ultimately syncing himself with a completely different side of production. He started Image Development Studios as a cornerstone for quality local and regional production, which further enhanced his portfolio allowing him to shoot, direct, and edit. He branched off into the commercial avenue, shooting adverts for many prominent companies including Digicel, Coke Zero and KFC to name a few. In 2012 co-directed the documentary OnePeople: The Celebration.
