Edith Nwekenta and Joi Williams, the brain behind the forthcoming MKN seminar which will feature internationally acclaimed video director, Director X has opened up on why they decided to organize an event that will feature the ace cinematographer.
According to them, Director X has worked with some of America’s biggest artistes and has successfully positioned himself as a force in the business. “Having this guy come to Nigeria to speak to aspiring minds and people in the field is something of note because he has grown to become one of the finest in the business.”
Speaking on why they chose Sesan and Mr. Moe Musa to partner with Director X for the seminar, they disclosed that “for us, they were the first two that came to mind outside Director X. We wanted to get two people from Nigeria and they were the first we taught of based on their knowledge and skills which we see on television.”
On the impact of the seminar on intending participants, Joi Williams stated that “for anyone attending the seminar, they would learn the practical details of music video directing, do’s and don’ts of making and producing a good music video. They would also learn how to exercise their mind and develop their creativity. They also would get to learn that making a video is a procedural thing, from collecting the song from the artiste, the creativity of the director and to the end result which the outcome of the video.”
Tagged as ‘Inside The Mind Of A Successful Video Director’, the seminar holds on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at The Summit, NERDC Road, Ikeja, Lagos.
