As dawn creeps across London, two lost outcasts meet in the darkness, more afraid of themselves than each other. As the sun begins to rise, and the veil of night is lifted, the pair are forced to look at themselves and face the harsh reality that life is sometimes what you make it, and that in the cold light of day, it takes more than the eyes to see inside a soul.
Jake is a writer and director based in London, whose first three award winning films, ‘XWHY’, ‘Brace’, and ‘Chance‘, were all nominated for The Iris Prize, and have screened at over 100 festivals worldwide.
Recent roles include parts in Tom Hooper’s ‘The Danish Girl’ and upcoming web series ‘Spectrum’ and ‘Different For Girls’.
His first Youtube video, ‘What It’s Like Being Transgender’ reached 300K views online, and he has this year written for GNI, QX and FTM Magazines, as well as Cosmopolitan online.
Jake was listed on The Independent’s Rainbow List, and The Guardian’s Pride Power List for his activism and visibility within the trans community.
