Hi, I'm Dev Thompson. I have a passion for telling stories about POC using film and photography. My goal is to show the world how beautiful and important we are to everyday life. In 2018, I decided to fully pursue filmmaking after years of just dreaming. Sometimes it's hard to dream when you're just trying to survive, but I took a leap of faith, letting go of my fears. Making things has helped me keep peace of mind, and I've met some really amazing people along the way. Creating brings me so much joy and self confidence… without it I would just be surviving.
