Participants at the second series of the storytelling workshop, Chris Ihidero‘s StoryStory Mastercla
40 young storytellers were selected to be part of this workshop and on Monday, despite the public holiday to celebrate Nigeria’s democracy day, some of the participants were already at the venue as early as 7:30am.
Chris Ihidero took the attendees through the basics of crafting a good story before stepping aside for writer and television content producer, Victor Sanchez Aghahowa and later, Tinsel head writer, Nkiru Njoku for them to share what they had with all. At the end of the day, the participants had been introduced to the realities of some of the processes involved in great storytelling.
On the second day of the workshop, the few other participants who could not make the first day joined up with the others for another rich masterclass. Content producer and SMAT Media CEO, Emma Uduma was on ground to share his wealth of experience, especially as it related to being the head of the first outfit to produce MTV Shuga in Nigeria.
Chris Ihidero’s Masterclass ended on Wednesday, June 1 with the participants learning more skills of storytelling as directors as well as how to make use of today’s digital tools from film and television director Olufemi Ogunsanwo and PR guru, Ayeni Adekunle Samuel.
