Summary of your enterprise
Searching for a less expensive film school is almost impossible. Almost! But here we are. So it isn't impossible because we have got everything you need. Movie making made easy teaches the fundamentals that go into making compelling videos from concept to completion. Hence, this is a project teaching persons how to become film makers from the comfort of their homes. Videos are made on the challenges that youths face when it comes to movie making and also on ways to tackle these challenges. from the pre-production stages of scripting and screen play to the production stages of costume/make-up, cinematography and video editing, videos and lectures are taken on challenges that youths face when movies are to be made, and ways to tackle these challenge. The problem with film schools today is that they are a puzzle, cost too much or take too long. But we have found a way to get around all these. Furthermore there are tutorials to cover each of the lectures for the period so you can always learn from home! Added to this is that you get a certificate as well as softwares on the completion... oh no! You do not get softwares on completion... you get them immediately you are registered!
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
For a few years, film making has become a very lucrative business in my country. it tends to broaden its profit margin as time goes on. However, youths are being left behind but never have i found persons as creative as youths because they think without limitations. Painfully, these youths are being used as political henchmen and also as hoodlums to terrorize my society. This stems from the scourge known as unemployment. on the 15th of march, 2013 over 6.5 million job seekers left their homes to sit for the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) recruitment examination in Abuja, Nigeria and some did not return home alive. Why? a good number of them were trampled to death while scores were seriously injured. A friend of mine who was one of the candidates for an interview almost lost his life in the stampede. This goes to tell you how impoverished we are when it comes to job opportunities. His story is one of pain and conflict. He is presently one of us. hence, I am asking others to become a part of this project as it will be a big plus to the economy of my country Nigeria and also to Ghana, because the over-dependency of Nigerians on the oil sector is becoming a stigma. Obviously, the oil sector is fast declining and getting jobs in Nigeria is like searching for needle in a haystack. With this project all this will be completely expunged. The film makers made from this project, will not only fend for themselves but also employ others thereby bringing a great reduction in unemployment which happens to be a never ending quagmire in my society. We call it play because movie making is an enjoyable process so you play while you earn money!
Sustainability and future plans
We have been having lectures and also crash courses, hence my intention is to ensure that we make tutorial videos on ways you can become a movie maker and reach out to persons in the rural as well as urban areas (who are unable to come down to us). Even those in the villages who know little or nothing about how to go about this will be enlightened in the video. Hence, youths and adults alike will be affected positively. We also intend to put these videos online so that we can reach out to those whom we cannot meet personally thereby bringing about a balance in distribution of knowledge.
Your profile as an entrepreneur
My name is Kingsley Oboro, born on the 30th of November 1984. A graduate of Theatre Arts from Delta State University, Abraka, Nigeria. When I was through with my university education, I left for my NYSC where I discovered that several communities had a vacuum which had to be filled. Hence the creation of the idea Movie Making Made Easy. With this, I had my first set of students and what looked like an experiment became true when all five of us went in for a video contest competition and made the best video which attracted over $5000 to us! In the past, I have been the secretary of the delta state drama association. my poem joker came third place at the Nego Poetry Competition. Furthermore, a short movie at the BOB TV universities challenge in Abuja where all universities in Nigeria were at logger heads, saw my produced work the patriot as the best in the year 2009. While I was serving, I wrote, directed, shot and edited the work for an advert video on the platform of "Mobile Telecommunications Network (MTN) iDon Port Competition" and the work was rated as the best from over 326 videos submitted from various parts of Nigeria. Since then I have been striving in my relentless efforts to ensure that other persons-youths and adults alike, benefit from this project.
