Ebonylife Launches Creative Academy In Collaboration With Lagos State Government And Laci
EbonyLife offers Free courses available from February 2021 for aspiring creatives and established filmmakers looking to gain world-class skills and career advancement.
The EbonyLife Creative Academy (ELCA) has been declared open for registration on www.ebonylifecreativeacademy.com. This groundbreaking initiative is supported by the Lagos State Government through Lagos State Creative Industries Initiative (LACI), under the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
ELCA, situated in VI Lagos, offers free, practical short courses covering all aspects of filmmaking and media content production, including acting, directing, producing, editing, sound, and lighting. Developed by local and foreign industry experts, the courses are designed to help working film professionals improve their skills and make them globally competitive, and to equip beginners with the skills they need to launch their careers on a sound footing.
ELCA was conceived by EbonyLife CEO Mo Abudu in response to the growing shortage of industry professionals, as Nollywood continues to expand. “We have so much talent in Nigeria and our people are ready to work. Unfortunately, very little training is available locally and most people cannot afford to go abroad for training. EbonyLife Creative Academy is meant to fill that gap and make world-class training available. Thankfully, the governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, understood our vision and gave us the support we needed to establish the academy here in Lagos, the hub of Nigerian filmmaking,” she said.
