Kunle Afolayan starts film, TV academy
Nigerian filmmaker and producer Kunle Afolayan is starting a film and TV academy as well as other projects to benefit creatives and content creators.
KAP Film & Television Academy will be housed in the KAP Hub and is designed to offer hands-on experience from veteran and great film professionals.
It will also provide those passionate about art, creativity, television, film and new media with exposure to diverse filmmaking tools on movie sets.
According to Afolayan, this was an idea he had years ago after the establishment of his film company Golden Effects Pictures in 2005.
“Initially, Golden Effects Pictures was involved in the production of films, documentaries, television commercials, music videos, film equipment rentals and film consultations. But with my decision to go into other demanding areas in the film industry, I decided to expand Golden Effects Pictures into subsidiary brands offering specialised services under the name KAP Hub.
“KAP Hub will consist of KAP Motion Pictures, a film and television academy, a cinema, Golden Effects Services, a restaurant and bar, live band, art and craft shops and a creative minds hangout.”
The KAP Hub will create an experience that will enable creatives to come together to unwind, eat, drink and interact with one another and be entertained by a live band.
