Nigerian movie director, Tunde Kelani, has set all plans in motion for the training of new set of students in the art and business of Filmmaking at his Mainframe Film and Media Institute in February 2017.
The institute is set to hold the second edition of her Film School Basic (FSB) where interested applicants can learn the basics of filmmaking and turn their dreams to reality. Students will be taken through the art and technique of filmmaking in response to emerging media applications.
The school is calling for applications from interested students who desire to have veterans and certified filmmakers train them to outdo them.
The training will hold at the school site in Abeokuta, Ogun State with option of hostel accommodation for students outside of the state. Seasoned facilitators such as Tunde Kelani, Niji Akanni, Ropo Ewenla, Bola Belo and Biodun Aleja, among others will be on ground to train the students.
According to the Programme Coordinator of MFMI, Abisola Ojo, the training institute is set to introduce other course programmes this year based on popular demand and emerging media trend.
MFMI is a film and media school established by Tunde Kelani to bridge the existing knowledge gap in the industry and to take students in their raw state and turn them into professional filmmakers who can go on to improve on the existing quality in the industry.
Some students who took the basic programme last year are already making noticeable marks in the industry.
