A few words about your artistic journey

My career journey sparked off in 2018 when i won a one year fully paid film training scholarship with the Multichoice Talent factory. During the graduation, the academy awarded me with a paid internship trip to Nollywood in Nigeria.

How long have you been an artist ?

My desire to tell stories evidently exhibited 6 years ago when i was studying my Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology.

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

I intend to make a documentary film about Creatives under Quarantine, to understand how they are surviving during the Corona Virus lockdown in Uganda.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

To encourage the struggling film makers and to remind them that they are not forgotten and they are cared for ;
To reach out to the government and policy makers in Uganda and to urge them to consider giving relief to the creative sector which they have ignored for the longest time.
