Edward Morgan – Cadet
Director | Cadet
Watching films was a massive part of my childhood as both my parents were avid watchers. Growing up I was exposed to all types of films in particular Blue velvet which I saw when I was far too young and to this day remember it being deeply upsetting at the time. I now love it but it took me a while to get over that initial trauma of Denis Hopper’s maniacal screams, that really bugged me at the time. I was strangely obsessed with dressing up and attempted making films since the age of ten, I always found myself bossing people around in these scenarios so directing seemed perfect.
