In 2007, I was in college with my friend and we were sitting around not doing anything right…(he was 16 and I was 18, now he’s 23 and I’m 25) we were just quiet and then he goes to me “Christian, I wanna learn how to shoot videos and I wanna open up a production company” to which I said “really? I never thought of that before” and he said “yeah I can do it, and you’ll be my partner” we laughed and carried on talking about whatever it was
Fast forward 8 years later, from 2 people, now there’s 8 of us with skills ranging from editors, colourists, photographers and a bunch of directors and im glad to say we’re all from the same place (DR Congo), we never planned it, it just kept happening. We’re also about to open up our first office in June 2016 (fingers crossed we get it) and since the year started, we did videos for manly afro beats acts, some rappers and rnb artists as well but also we shot well over 25 weddings, 5 short movies, a couple adverts etc… this year and we’re booked for the first half of next year JUST in weddings but our ticket was managing to shoot for an artist called “Mohombi” (search him up 😊) which is making a lot of noise on our Facebook page. Our next goal is to go back to the motherland (DR Congo) set up shop and go from there. The main thing there is to provide things that aren’t available to everyone and ultimately start fixing up the country then the continent (we have big plans)
I just wanted to say, don’t give up on your dreams, whether it’s yours or your friend, make sure you support them and yourself. I was the biggest sceptic of myself and others for the longest time but I believe today, I know you’re going through some stuff, I know you feel like giving up but let me tell you… I know because I’ve been there more times than I can remember but let me say its gonna happen, keep at it. It If I can do it then you can and you will too I speak it into existence.
I love you my people ❤❤
