IF ONLY is a gritty, hard hitting short filmed aimed at individuals who may be involved in gang and violent youth crime or influenced by it. The film aims to divert young people away from violent crime through use of real life story telling.
C.R.I.M.E (Creating Role Models In Media Enterprise) was set up by Mr Fredi 'KRUGA' Nwaka and is a community organisation which works with ex offenders, gang members and young teens turning their stories or experiences into short film. It was set up as a response to the 2011 London riots as a way to not only give back to the community but to help some of the troubled teenagers who would like to seek a career in film/TV,this being done through work shops, mentoring and real life film classes. Having lost over 40 friends and associates to violent crime and gang affiliated incidences, Fredi Nwaka has used his real life experiences to deliver a punchy, fast paced, intelligent look at the gang epidemic which has claimed the lives of so many of our young people.
