What’s your story:
ADMI teaches you to think outside the box and while I was there I got a shot using a smartphone. This won a grant that went into making a proper short interactive film called Wafula. After school, I have been a cameraman and video editor on international projects and local ones that ranged from television content to documentaries. Currently, I enjoy mentoring aspiring filmmakers and experimenting on smartphone filmmaking with passion projects as I make a living as a screenwriter, video editor and SEO article writer.
