I started writing at the age of sixteen. At age eighteen my focus turned towards writing for film and television. I am inspired by African stories and right now I am specializing in telling stories through the medium of animation.
I have been writing for the past ten years ; and I have been an animator for the last three years.
I applied for this grant because I love storytelling, and I am always excited for opportunities to tell African stories. My desire is to use filmmaking to offer a hopeful vision of Africa’s tomorrow. The grant will allow me to invest in producing an ambitious and aesthetically innovative short-film.
By the end of the residency, I hope to produce a stop-motion short-film which offers solutions and fixes for the broken healthcare systems of many African countries.
