A fantastic opportunity for Nigerian directors and actors to be part of an innovative ‘social movie’ collaborative film project will be happening in Lagos this January and February 2016.
Following on from the success of Snapped The Movie, the UK’s first ever short film specifically created for and shown on Snapchat, we are about to create Snapped Nigeria (working title), the next Snapchat movie which will be set and filmed in Lagos. It will be produced by Kemi Lala Akindoju for 2Far Media Ltd and supported by the British Council who will also be promoting and marketing the movie.
What is ‘Snapped the Movie’?
Snapped the Movie is the brainchild of 2far Media and is a simple but powerful concept – produced by creating a narrative sequence of multiple short Snapchat films for Snapchat ‘My Story’. Snapped The Movie is a unique way of creating film content for young audiences in a format they like to engage with. The short film appears for only 24 hours on the ‘My story’ feature on Snapchat. Although employing professional film processes, the films are recorded entirely on a mobile phone and, alongside the characters, the mobile phone itself becomes a character in the world created.
The final version of the first movie can be viewed at http://www.snappedthemovie.
Snapped Nigeria, written by Bola Agbaje will be shown live on Snapchat on 22nd February and will be the focus of a panel discussion on February 26th held as part of the programme of events at the high profile Social Media Week Lagos 2016 conference.
