Johannesburg– The Film and television space is one that increasingly grows with time. It carries legendary creatives and produces state-of-the-art filmmakers who are dedicated to conceptualizing the filmmaking process. The fast-paced and innovative industry also calls for an opportunity to bring in new talent and perspective. Integrated marketing and communications company, Gateway Media; creative film hub, Leaders in Motion Academy (LIMA) and the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) have partnered to host a 4-day production master class, in both Rustenburg and Mafikeng respectively.
The exclusive workshops, led by Thato Molamu, Neo Ntlatleng, Ayanda Sithebe among other industry leaders, will introduce a theoretical and practical curriculum for those that have an interest in creative storytelling. Scriptwriting, directing and film production, will be some of the modules that are explored ahead of completing the end-to-end process of the filmmaking class.
“There exists a great number of untold stories that deserve to be told. Filmmaking is one of the most powerful forms in which rich content can be created and moulded to entertain, inform and have your story heard,” says Nolo Phiri, Project Manager of the initiative.
“The upcoming master classes are designed to educate, empower and challenge those who want to grow in the field of Film and Television,” she adds.
The master classes aim to connect and give access to creatives by upskilling and providing relevant and comprehensive training.
Entries are now open from the 23rd to the 26th of March for aspiring TV and film producers in Rustenburg and from the 5th to the 9th of April for those in Rustenburg.
