Matt Hichens, MD and EP of Armoury says he: "met Uzo at an exhibition of his stills just before the first lockdown." He added that they "talked about a short film he was beginning to edit and Uzo asked if I could help find an editor and similarly I had also recently caught up with editor John Smith. John very kindly came on board and worked with Uzo and completed the film, which is an incredible, award winning short film Edicius." Matt is very happy to welcome Uzo to his roster at Armoury, saying "It's been an absolute pleasure working with him and seeing what a genuinely talented and brilliant director and writer he is. I am really looking forward to working with him on more projects now he has been kind enough to join Armoury."
