Ever since I was told to move out of home at sixteen with no hopes of a career other than whoring, I’ve always wanted a place of my own, constantly. I have aunts whose places it is out of question to not stay the night and longer and yet, no matter how much they would ask […]
The year ended on a shitty note. This one begun on yet another shitty one; no surprise there. I’ve been so broke it’s hilarious and lucky for me, I’ve had friends give me fare, food and even pay up my contribution to a film venture whose production I was part of. I hate begging, but […]
6. The Orgy: Yes, group sex is the least WTF scene in Sense8. Because right after the participating Sensates are done having mindblowing orgasms, the very next scene is this one: 5. Van Damme Dry Humping a Tub Capheus’ face at the end does make me wonder; since the Sensates can feel each other, did […]
So this friend from school got a part in the Netflix series Sense8 last year and regardless of the fact that he wasn’t the lead, it was still a huge HUGE deal he got in on it! Not only that but another day in town with a pal of mine, I happened to find myself […]
Two weeks ago, we made an impromptu film. We had the camera on hand anyway so we decided “What the hell!” What resulted was a fun movie experience, a tiresome day and the sweet sweet feeling of fulfillment after a whole year of not making a single film. Today I was on set of a […]
Like I wrote previously, I had lost my filmmaking mojo and for a film student I was like- “Poof! All is gone for me!”
Then I met this guy Eddie, through a pal and while he’s no filmmaker, he has such an extensive knowledge and passion for Kenyan film that it’s rubbing off on me. Sure there are a few very well made Kenyan films but on a whole, I wasn’t very optimistic about this industry.
However, being an intern at Film Kenya Magazine has changed that in just a few weeks. Together with my pal, I have managed to tag along to exciting interviews and film sets and you meet Kenyan filmmakers and even foreign ones, who are working so hard to keep Kenyan film alive. And like it or not you start believing in the industry too! I know I do!
And no, I am still yet to get my filmmaking mojo back but at least I’ve been writing (mostly articles and unfinished scripts I admit but it’s still a start right? Cut me some slack :-p)
I lost my filmmaking mojo. 😦 I still am an avid watcher-especially of Kenyan films- but I have lost the urge to direct a film. It’s a little scary cuz since I begun campus that’s what I’ve been doing- writing and directing- and I absolutely loved it till I made a very crappy film! *hiding […]
In my hands, I hold my future ; who I want to become, what I want to do with my life- I am the single driving force. People may give ma advice on what career is best for me ,what I should do to get there and how soon I should get there but at […]
I have to make a film based on photos. Photography? Yaaaaaay! I chose a fashion theme and yeah, I was super excited at first but yesterday night when I was listing the amount of fashion looks I want, the fear of “inexperience” begun creeping. I have never done fashion photography but I LOVE IT! I […]
