Who is dilan jay?
First time film maker from sri lanka,
Terrorism Fighter, Billboard artist,
Actor & Writer
the Producer of Hollow POint
directed by Daniel Zirilli
I am a first time film maker, terrorist fighter, Billboard artist, award-winning musician, and film producer – all that, plus: I’m Sri Lanka. Here is where Sri Lanka is:
I’m introducing myself to you because I want to see more people from my country in mainstream film – both on screen and on set. I’ve lived my entire life promoting my incredible island country and advocation for minorities’ voices, including women
In fact, in Hollow Point, I deliberately put women into these roles:
- Director of Photography
- Line Producer
- 1st AD
- Lead Actress (re-casted from male)
India comprises of about 1/6 of the world’s population, yet there’s a small handful of prominent Indian artists in mainstream media. I think Himesh Patel starring in Yesterday is proof that people want to see more talent from this exquisite country on the big screen. Right now to my knowledge —
There are NO film leaders from Sri Lanka in mainstream media.
One Guy - an artist -
against a lethal terrorist group
For 30 years, Sri Lanka suffered from a horrific civil war instigated by the LTTE terrorist group (aka, the Tamil Tigers). At the height of the my career as DeLon the rapper, I spoke out against a terrorist supporter tied to the LTTE by publishing a music video – a parody – exposing them. In response to my publishing this video, the LTTE terrorist sympathizers created about 120 false videos about me, with photos of me, and they were published on YouTube giving so-called “proof” that I was a dangerous felon.
Let’s be clear —
- LTTE was ranked #3 on the FBI’s most dangerous terrorist groups at the time.
- They murdered over 100,000 people in the Sri Lankan civil war.
- Killed a Prime Minister and a President the ONLY terrorist group to do so.
- Attacked Sri Lanka’s World Trade Center, before Al-Queda attacked the U.S. World Trade Center.
