The CEO of EbonyFilms, MO Abudu, can’t wait to make her directorial debut.
The executive producer of “Fifty,” “The Royal Hibiscus Hotel” and “The Wedding Party” recently completed an intensive 3-week course for directors at the London Film School.
“This
is an incredibly busy year at EbonyLife, with several series launches
on our TV channel, two new films and several other projects in
pre-production.”
“However, I
felt that it was really important to continue my growth as a filmmaker,
with a view to directing my first feature in the near future,”
Abudu said.

The
course covered the fundamentals of scriptwriting, visual language,
choosing locations, working with actors, shooting, editing and post
production.
“One critical area of
learning for me was mise-en-scène – the arrangement of everything that
appears in the frame – actors, lighting, decor, props and costumes,”
she said.

MO Abudu made her debut into filmmaking with ‘The Wedding Party.’

The course was led by Udayan Prasad, who directed the critically acclaimed 2008 movie, “The Yellow Handkerchief.”
“I have learned so much over the last few weeks and I am really looking forward to putting all of it into practice very soon,” Abudu said.
