Wow! Meet The Amazing Nigerian Students Who Shoot Sci-Fi Movies With Smartphones (Video)

Published

on


Some incredibly talented Nigerian students who shoot sci-fi movies with their smartphones have been unveiled.
 
‘The Critics’, a team of young students from Kaduna state, has started making waves after repeatedly shooting widely accepted sci-fi movies with smartphones.

The eight-man team learned special effects from YouTube tutorials; used a smashed mobile phone as camera; made a broken microphone into their tripod; and opted for an improvised hairdryer to initiate the heavy winds.

They also defied regular internet and power outages and deployed video editing techniques into their production processes to portray the desired movie scenes while standing in front of just a green studio fabric.

In an interview with Reuters, Raymond Yusuf, a member of the team and a student, spoke on the crew’s success strides and noted that their efforts have not been without challenges.

“The computer is really slow. Like, it takes time to render. A five-minute short film took us almost two days to render. Apart from this, electricity here is pretty poor,” Yusuf explained.
 

The young filmmakers have made a name for themselves online, a feat that could potentially earn them lucrative careers in the Nollywood industry as professional film producers.

The crew’s ingenuity earned them the support of a popular producer in the country who initiated a fundraising campaign in their name and amassed them nearly $6000 with which to purchase new equipment for more quality films.

Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna governor, who recently invited the team, praised their creativity. He also offered them government support and constituted a team of senior officials to work out “the details with their families.”

 
“The main aim was not for our stuff to go viral. We just wanted people to see that there are kids in Kaduna doing something different. So that was just the main. But, all of sudden, it’s just happens and blew our minds,” Godwin Josiah, a member of the team, said.

Below is one of their short films.

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
