My CEDITRAA story
“My particular fascination with digital technologies and creative industries like Nollywood began just after my MA in Digital Media. I was teaching digital filmmaking at a University in Nigeria and at the same time was a documentary filmmaker in Nigeria.
This fascination accounts for how I discovered CEDITRAA. For me, working with a team of scholars with different backgrounds brings a wealth of experience and knowledge. What I perceive to be made of this knowledge is limitless. The CEDITRAA team in this interdisciplinary research project is not only an addition to my network but will offer continuous practical solutions to interrelated issues in the film industry in Nigeria. I want to be a part of that.”
