MTF West Africa Class of 2020 Short Films
The rapid spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the continent has required us to put in place some precautionary measures to ensure that we minimise the risk of significant impact to our people, business and the services we provide to our customers. In line with protocols outlined by various governments and health officials regarding the closure of academic institutions during this time, MultiChoice Africa made a decision to temporarily close the MultiChoice Talent Factory academies in Lagos, Nairobi and Lusaka with immediate effect, until further notice.
Our Class of 2020 students went home and were soon faced with the grim realities of COVID-19 and the newness of online learning. As part of their curriculum, the MTF West Africa Academy challenged students to document and share their personal stories about the impact of COVID-19. Each student shot and edited a 3 minutes silent mobile film made with zero budget. The result is ‘Isolation Diaries’ – 20 short films that portray the student’s fears, hopes and the realities of living in COVID times.
