My Montserrat: Jerely Browne

production-bts

Videographer and film producer Jerely Browne has a cross-Caribbean background. He was actually born in Jamaica but was raised on Montserrat, where he still resides. His love of art, graphics, animation and video pushed him to launch his company Number 15 in 2014; Number 15 produces international quality video. In 2016, he wrote and produced his first short film “Alone”, which highlights the strength of friendship to overcome adversity.

Let’s take a look at Montserrat through Jerely’s eyes.

Describe Montserrat in three words.
Home, safe, potential.

Which area are you from?
Judy Piece, on the north side of the island.

What is your favourite traditional dish?

A good roti.

Which high school did you go to and what was your favourite subject?
The Montserrat Secondary School. My favourite subject was Technical Drawing.

Did any particular teacher make an impact on you?

Yes, my old mathematics teacher Dr Samuel Joseph. He helped me to expand my graphics skills by orchestrating several projects which required it.

Which local activist/personality do you admire the most, and why?

Roydenn Silcott. He’s in a similar field to me. I find that we’re different in key areas, but in many, we’re the same. I’ve done many projects for and with him, and it’s partly because of this why I’m at the level I am today.

What is your favourite restaurant?

A little place called Country Style.

Where would you recommend as a ‘must go’ to a first-time visitor to Montserrat?

Absolutely must go on a tour to the ruined capital of Plymouth which was destroyed by the volcanic eruption years ago. It reeks of pain and sadness, yet at the same time, there’s a subtle beauty in its sight. It serves as a constant reminder of Mother Nature’s power.

Where do you go to kick back and relax with family and friends?
I’d say the island’s main beach Little Bay on a Sunday afternoon late into the night.

What’s your favourite local expression/proverb?
The two words I use most often together are “Boss Man”. You say them together in a sentence like, “Sup Boss Man” or “Wa gwan Boss Man”. Which pretty much means “How are you?”

You’re planning your perfect day out. Tell me about it.
A campfire night on the beach, relaxing, with my girlfriend and my closest friends and pretty much anyone who has a good heart. Discussions about life, traditional games and an endless number of jokes.

What major developments would you like to see happen in Montserrat in the next 20 years?
I envision Montserrat being one of the top destinations in the world. The island is home to people from all walks of life. Essentially an island enriched with diverse culture, booming industry, filled with energy and passion, all tied together with love for your neighbour.
