GLOBAL film giant Sony and Nigeria’s publishing and storytelling company Quramo will co-host a compelling workshop for emerging filmmakers on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at Quramo creative hub – 13 Sinari Daranijo, Victoria Island, Lagos tagged ‘The Art of Visual Storytelling’ workshop. Time is 10:00am. The free-to-attend event is designed to contribute to the growth of the Nigerian film industry, as it specifically focuses on enhancing storytelling skills.

Quramo, known for curating the annual Quramo Writers Festival (Qfest) and acclaimed documentary productions including Journey of An African Colony, places a strong emphasis on storytelling in various forms. The workshop features Ema Edosio Deelen as the facilitator. Deelen, renowned for directing the internationally acclaimed film Otiti that is celebrated at festivals in Brazil, New York, Spain, and beyond, will utilize ‘Otiti’ as a prime case study during the session. Her goal is to demystify the art of crafting compelling stories that rely on potent visuals rather than heavy dialogue.

A statement from Quramo said, “Participants in this interactive workshop will have the opportunity to explore the process of creating narratives that deeply resonate with audiences, utilizing imagery to evoke emotions and establish universal connections. Aspiring filmmakers will gain insights from Deelen’s expertise that empowers them to enhance their storytelling skills and leave lasting impression through the compelling medium of visual narrative. Prospective filmmakers are encouraged to join Sony Alpha Nigeria and Quramo for an enriching experience aimed at elevating storytelling within the Nigerian film industry.”
