MultiChoice trains MUBS University Mbarara students to make movies with smartphones


Uganda’s home of major pay TV entertainment MultiChoice Uganda in partnership with the Uganda Communications Commission for their final road show training traveled to MUBS Mbarara to teach students how to earn money through making movies while using their smartphones.

The one-day training attracted students from different courses interested in learning how movies come to life and how, indeed, they can start small with just their smartphones.

While presenting the masterclass to the students, Mitchel Mwesiga, the Public Relations and Publicity Assistant MultiChoice Uganda urged the students to grab the opportunity at their place of convenience.

“The general demand for entertainment around the world is on the rise. Every year, we have 365 days and 24 hours to produce and present films to viewers. Therefore, an opportunity to tap into this demand is available to every student interested in learning how to make films.

He further encouraged students to start with the devices they have rather than looking to start big, which in most cases hampers those with talent and passion.

“The reason we came here today is to teach you how to use low-budget equipment like your smartphones as you progress through the industry before using high-end equipment which in most cases , are quite expensive. Mwesiga mentioned.

Masterclass trainer Cissy Nalumansi, an alumnus of the MultiChoice Talent Factory, taught students how to script their story, with a plot to captivate viewers as well as how to get shots and angles with different applications for students to take advantage of. .

In an effort to further show the community of Mbarara how local films have indeed transformed, an award-winning KEMI film was screened in the town for all to see and enjoy a story told by a Ugandan.

This training was the latest film training in the hinterland as Multichoice and the Uganda Communications Commission prepare for the Uganda Film Festival which will reward and recognize local talent in the industry.
