It takes a lot to write to begin with internet connection.
Enough about me, i want to entirely dedicate the whole of this post to Hot Sun Foundation. So today is my last day of attachment in Hot Sun but that doesn’t mean i won’t be around if needed. For those who don’t know about Hot Sun Foundation i might drop a hit after another as i proceed. 

Thank you Hot Sun Foundation for giving me a chance to horn my skills in my field. It has been a priviledge and most of all a humbling two months experince of my life. I’ve met a lot of nice people during my stay and hope i was of help to the foundation. I loved the fact that i got to meet people who are in the industry with vast knowledge in montoring,scripting and social networking.

Hot-sun foundation socially transforms through media and art. It’s branched into Kibera Film School, Hot-sun productions and Kibera TV. It is a foundation that is giving a chance to young filmmakers to practice hand-on filmmaking in the heart of Kibera.
I know i have said alot of thanks but i again thank you so much for this opportunity. I meant alot to me. I can never be more than this grateful.

Learning How To Tell A Story.

There is no reason why challenging themes and engaging stories have to be mutually exclusive, for sure as I learnt from my scriptwriting instructor each can fuel the other. As an aspiring filmmaker, I want to entertain people as much as I can. I learnt about the transformational ARC structure in screenplay writing. If from my films I create awareness and understanding of a time and circumstance, then the hope is that change can happen. This is what I learnt at Kibera film school.

At Kibera Film School, I learnt the rules in filmmaking and now daily I break them to suit my creativity. 

The unique hands-on training at Kibera Film School you get to interact with industry filmmakers and get a chance to work on professional film sets.
