Nollywood renowned actor, producer & director Desmond Elliot, has been billed to host the first edition of a talent hunt show for aspiring filmmakers in Africa which will be aired on some popular cable stations.
The programme, tagged ‘Unleash Ur Creativity’, organised by Emmanuel Eyaba of ETt Media Network Limited, will also give room to rising actors, scriptwriters, cameramen, songwriters, singers, editors, makeup artistes or costumiers the opportunity to showcase their talent.
‘Unleash Ur Creativity’ was set up due to the need to create a platform where many people, especially youths, will be empowered through movies.
Participants would be required to conceptualize a story, produce and premiere it within the period to a live TV audience and the winning group will get a wooping N10million to produce a feature film.
