Segun Arinze, National President of Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ngozi Nkebuaku(National President of Cinematographer and others offer their Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) to empowering Nigerian Youth on Free Film making training.
The empowerment of Nigerian youths at this stage of our national development cannot be over emphasized. From all indications, our youths have continuously suffered deprivation and neglect due to growing challenges of unemployment in the country.
In line with this thought, Magnus Film Academy, a sister company to Magnus Media and Entertainment has designed a FREE empowerment programme to take our youths off the street and get them meaningfully engaged. The programme package entails 4 weeks intensive training on Film Making and Production; Cinematography, Directing, Acting & Voice Modulation, Editing (Special Effects and 3D Effects), Scripting (Script Interpretation and Screenplay), The Art of Documentaries, How to Pass Auditions, Continuity and Producing for youths who are willing to take up a career in the film making industry. Participants also have the opportunity to feature in our forthcoming movie productions as a means of giving them a launch pad to stardom.
On our part, the initiative is being taken as our company Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme to give back to the society. Our training is FREE of charge, the participants are only required to pay a token Registration/Accreditation fee. The bulk of the training cost is borne by our Corporate Sponsors. Many thanks to them.
The edition of this programme is tagged, ‘LIVE YOUR DREAM’ and shall be held at the prestigious Airport Valley Resort, Abakiliki Road, Emene, Enugu State. The programme shall move to different states subsequently.
