A member of Raindance Academy, the UK’s biggest independent filmmaking body, Chris Ihidero has participated in story Masterclasses facilitated by Hollywood’s top script/story consultant and author of the classic Anatomy of Story, John Truby.
Chris Ihidero is passionate about positively impacting the Nigerian creative industry with appropriate skills and development capacities.
The first ever five-day workshop holds from May 28 to June 1.
The aim of the workshop according to the Lagos Film Academy is to educate writers who are wondering how great TV shows are written and would like to write for TV and make money while doing so.
