Del-York offers training in capacity building
Del-York Creative Academy (DCA) has commenced its 2014 hands-on intensive film-making workshop tagged Film Made in Nigeria.
Tailored towards improving the skills and creative capacity of filmmakers and broadcast journalists in Nigeria, the four-week programme, which holds at Digital Bridge Institute, Lagos, will feature intensive hands-on courses on producing, directing, acting, digital film-making and broadcast journalism, among others.
According to the management, only select members from the Directors Guild of Nigeria, The Nigerian Society of Editors, Creative Designers Guild of Nigeria, Screenwriters Guild of Nigeria, Nigerian Society of Cinematography, Actors Guild of Nigeria and the Association of Movie Producers (AMP) will enjoy first-class training from tutors of the Del-York Creative Academy.
“With a penchant for quality training, the Academy engaged trainers from Los Angeles and New York who have since arrived Lagos and are excited and overly ready to impact the students and expose them to high-tech equipment and methods that will make them equal contenders with their international counterparts,” said Linus Idahosa, CEO of Del-York International.
Del-York international in partnership with the New York Film Academy has, so far, trained over 650 aspiring and professional filmmakers, some of whom have either received or been nominated to win several local and International awards.
This year’s programme is supported by the Project Act-Capacity Building Fund, which is dedicated to supporting skills acquisition along the entire value chain of the Nigerian entertainment industry.
