About Yibain

After reading geology at the University of Buea, in 1999 I started as a paint artist, and learned filmmaking by doing music videos. Since Filmmaking in Cameroon is still with teas, I have been going about it the guerrilla style, and together with my friends, we have realized quite some goo projects, including NINAH'S DOWRY, OBSESSION, BELEH, and a few others that have hit the world scene. I work most of the time either as a DP or a Cinematographer and am now considered one of the best cinematographers in Cameroon. Unfortunately I have never owned my own Camera, but the way I go about it is by downloading manuals of the latest Cameras and studying, updating myself about lenses and filters, watching classic movies, reading a lot of books on different aspects of filmmaking. Together with my colleagues, we are trying to develop a genre related to our visual realities, the aesthetics of our local communities, which we call "Afro-Racine".
