Hello world! I'm a script writer and film producer from Nairobi, Kenya. I am also a computer scientist and software developer who built an app that streams short films for free at https://imara.tv/ to enable the Government of Kenya educate the public about health using entertainment. What's even better, the short films are crowdsourced from talented but unemployed youth in Kenya who collaborate online and offline to harness their artistic and digital skills to produce original films that earn them a regular income from advertising to create sustainable jobs in the local film industry. I am excited to be helping showcase films from Africa which have historically being absent from the global stage. I am looking for strategic partners with the technical knowledge and financial resources to produce low to medium budget films and series set in Africa for a global audience. See my loglines for some stories we are looking to produce. Looking forward to collaborating with like-minded people to bring African stories to the world!
