Unlocking your pontential through Filming & Photography

To make a film means to be a producer, requiring a combination of the art and techniques of film narration and the tricks of finance.
Being a producer is also about giving adequate answers to questions that underlie the desire and reasons for producing: What to produce? Why? How?
Both objectively and subjectively, these questions determine the entire cultural or commercial vision, the strategy behind any movie or video production. [ says Mr. Henry Nsereko Kiwanuka ]
