Mastercard Foundation and KAP Film and Television Academy have announced a partnership to train 300,000 Nigerian youths in film, television, and motion picture production over the next three years.


In a statement, the Chief Executive Officer and Founder, KAP, Mr Kunle Afolayan, said, “The academy focuses on growing the next generation of skilled filmmakers through the tutelage of veterans and film professionals who provide hands-on experience in diverse aspects of filmmaking to enrolled students.”


He added that the KAP Academy would leverage smartphone technology for the training programme and teaching would be conducted through a learning app.


He said, “The KAP App is a mobile learning application where multimedia content — which includes video and audio lessons, visual presentations, video simulations, and interactive testing — will be delivered to the students.


“It will allow students to have access to interactive learning content, industry professionals, community forums, an electronic library, a job board, financial support, contacts, and links among others.”


The training programme will include the Masterclass Series, a virtual series of 20 episodes providing e-learning to aspiring filmmakers, covering several aspects of filmmaking from directing, cinematography, and the business of film.
