ELCA was conceived by EbonyLife CEO Mo Abudu in response to the rising shortage of industry professionals, as Nollywood continues to increase. “We have so much talent in Nigeria and our people are ready to work. Unfortunately, very little training is available locally and most people cannot afford to go abroad for training. EbonyLife Creative Academy is meant to fill that gap and make world-class training available. Thankfully, the governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, understood our vision and gave us the support we needed to establish the academy here in Lagos, the hub of Nigerian filmmaking,” she stated.EbonyLife launches Creative Academy in collaboration with Lagos State Government and LACI

The Governor of Lagos State, Mr Sanwo-Olu mentioned that, “We are very excited about this development because it is in line with two of the development pillars of our THEMES agenda – education & technology and entertainment & tourism. By training our people to use the latest technology, we will continue to enhance the quality of our entertainment content and attract production crews from the rest of Africa and around the world.”EbonyLife launches Creative Academy in collaboration with Lagos State Government and LACI

With Nollywood being the world’s third largest film industry in terms of volume, ELCA is step one towards creating a value chain built on international best practice in manufacturing high quality. As Nigerian movies proceed to enhance, so has their international acceptability and recognition.

Nollywood wants actors, administrators, producers and technical crew who can meet the calls for of the worldwide movie and tv market. It will reduce Nollywood’s use of overseas crew to fill key manufacturing roles and permit filmmakers to retain their distinctive type of Nigerian storytelling.EbonyLife launches Creative Academy in collaboration with Lagos State Government and LACI

The academy’s brief programs and programmes are designed to supply each seasoned professionals and learners with the important technical, inventive and sensible abilities for the movie and TV trade. Business specialists will present pragmatic, in-context studying that may allow graduates to pursue roles on industrial productions with confidence.EbonyLife launches Creative Academy in collaboration with Lagos State Government and LACI

Based on Mrs. Uzamat Akinbile-Yusuf, Hon. Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, ELCA is precisely what Lagos wants right now. “As we begin to emerge from the shadow of this global pandemic, it is heartening that we can look forward to an increase in activity in the movie industry, which provides so many jobs and supports so many small businesses. EbonyLife Creative Academy will be a catalyst for growth in this sector,” she stated.
