A few words about your artistic journey

My love for story telling drove me to tell stories in whatever shape or form. I started writing articles for the newspaper and this developed my love to literally hear my characters speak as well as see them on screen. This thus begun my writing for radio and the wide screen.

How long have you been an artist ?

I started writing almost 15 years ago and have never looked back. .

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

As the lockdown persisited, even the few jobs that I had already booked cancelled and decided that they would do things either online or not at all. This grant will help sustain my livelihood even as I continue to create art.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

After this residency I would like to get this short film produced. I will be working on developing a treatment and shootable script during the residency.
