Phew what a day. I’m too tired so I’ll just use photos to explain how it all went down. Thanks to all who participated. Read more after the photos down below. read the tags on the photos too
First we started with The workshop. About 14 writers came
of course my baby girl bunmi was live tweeting the whole thing
all 20 scripts were dissected
we learnt a lot about Grammar
Kenny Joseph is a screenwriting genius
Emmanuel Uduma (MT Shuga) came to share insight and hunt for writers
Uduak Oguamanam (Falling, Desperate Housegirls) came to share insights and Jollof rice
Rita Onwura (Meet-The-Inlaws) came to present her special prize for the winner
then i stepped in like a bahd guy
made everyone write their names on the cheque. we are all winners
Abosi Ogba’s Room 315 won
Then there’s the Afriville Jollof Rice that also studied abroad
see this one..posing with Jollof
see that one…thinking about what to do with his 100k
Uduak Oguamanam runs Afriville. the have the best African food in lagos
We all decided to go see The Arbitration
The look on their faces after seeing the movie
So Abosi Ogba won the 100k.
Next thing is to start casting for the film. Good news. The other two scripts Pastopreneur and The Salon will also be made after this one. Lots of producers are interested already. We will also get to screen in a cinema. Abosi gets to partake in the ScriptIt conference by Rita Onwurah free next week and all the other 19 writers get a discount. They also get to be at the filming of the movie.
So people are you ready for whats to come?
Now lemme go and rest.
