Snapped Nigeria: Another Opportunity For Nigerian Filmmakers


Lala-and-her-crestThere is an opportunity for Nigerian directors and actors to be part of an innovative ‘social movie’ collaborative film project. The collaborative project dubbed Snapped Nigeria will hold in Lagos this January and February 2016.

Following on from the success of ‘Snapped The Movie’, the UK’s first ever short film specifically created for and shown on Snapchat, the promoters have concluded work on birthing the next Snapchat movie which will be set and filmed in Lagos. It will be produced by Kemi Lala Akindoju for 2Far Media Ltd and supported by the British Council who will also be promoting and marketing the movie.

Snapped the Movie is the brainchild of 2far Media and it involves creating a narrative sequence of multiple short Snapchat films for Snapchat ‘My Story’.  Snapped The Movie is a unique way of creating film content for young audiences in a format they like to engage with. The short film appears for only 24 hours on the ‘My story’ feature on Snapchat. Although employing professional film processes, the films are recorded entirely on a mobile phone and, alongside the characters; the mobile phone itself becomes a character in the world created.

Snapped Nigeria, written by Bola Agbaje will be shown live on Snapchat on 22nd February and will be the focus of a panel discussion on February 26th held as part of the programme of events at the high profile Social Media Week Lagos 2016 conference.

Those interested in being a part of the project, either as a director or actor; can send a short bio, contact details, descriptions and links to Shortlisted candidates will be invited to participate in our workshop scheduled for the 19th of January.
