The 3-day workshop was well-organized, intriguing and very informative. All participants attended as expected by the organization. The purpose of the workshop was to focus on Directing and Cinematography. As expected, it was very interactive and insightful.

Nevertheless,  the workshop kept the applicants enthusiastic and excited as they were allowed to freely use cinematography equipment and participate in demonstrations.

In fact, more emphasis was placed on the practical aspect of the workshop in order to ensure that the applicants were imparted with adequate skills in directing and cinematography.

Furthermore, the practical nature of the workshop enabled many applicants to express their creative opinions.

The applicants showed a lot of gratitude and expressed their genuine excitement about the three-day workshop and how appreciative they were for being exposed to such in-depth knowledge and experience from guest instructors; Yaw Sky face and Scilla Owusu.

The executive director of the Accra film School, Mr Rex Anthony Annan graced the workshop with a powerful speech in which he said: “the time to raise the pertaining standard in Ghana’s film industry is overdue.”
