Great news to aspiring and even professional filmmakers, screenwriters, actors/actresses, cinematographers, visual producers and even our society as a whole as Ebonylife launches a creative academy in partnership with Lagos State Government through Lagos State Creative Initiative (LACI) under the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture
Ebonylife creative Academy officially opened on the 8th of March, 2021. It stands out from other institutions in the country as it’s top-notch standards are specifically aimed at letting talented, creative, and passionate enrollees explore a world of opportunities in the film and media industry.
CEO of EbonyLife, Mo Abudu, stated “We have so much talent in Nigeria and our people are ready to work. Unfortunately, very little training is available locally and most people cannot afford to go abroad for training. EbonyLife Creative Academy is meant to fill that gap and make world-class training available. Thankfully, the Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, understood our vision and gave us the support we needed to establish the academy here in Lagos, the hub of Nigerian filmmaking.”
ELCA( Ebonylife creative academy) offers short, free and practical courses put together by local and international industry experts in courses ranging from film making, directing, producing, visual/audios, media content production, screenwriting, acting and so much more!
What’s more amazing is that all classes will be held at the new and fully equipped campus in Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. The lecture rooms are designed to accommodate 15 students per class which will enhance better assimilation of courses taught and practiced. This implies that about 120 students are expected to graduate each semester and also means that there are limited slots to register for each semester.
Registration for these programmes commenced on 17th December and the first batch of enrollees are set to begin training away!
Registration is still currently on and the next batch of enrollees are expected to be selected from 26th April 2021.
After each session, students from different course specialties are grouped to create an actual television show or short film for exhibition, which paves way for talent showcase, internships, and even golden career opportunities!
