Abudu Productions: The Vanguard of Kenyan Filmmaking

Updated: Jun 7

Abudu Productions—you may or may not have heard of it yet, but I can guarantee that within your lifetime, and even your children's, this name will be on the lips of everyone across East Africa, all of Africa, and perhaps the entire world. Why? Because it’s spectacular.

In just under nine weeks, Abudu Productions has created nine short films, carrying the goal of creating 12 films in 12 weeks. This impressive output has launched a myriad of films into the creative atmosphere. Some of these films are available on their website, others on their YouTube page, and a few are top-secret projects reserved for film competition judges.

I had the pleasure of being invited to their most recent set as an observer, and it was incredible to witness a group of young filmmakers and enthusiasts creating with such professionalism. Call times were strictly adhered to, roles clearly defined, camaraderie and mutual respect evident, in-house catering provided, and the use of professional equipment. Their team exudes brilliance in every aspect, and it was an honor to be part of the experience.

With only three films left to complete, the team is running a tight schedule to meet their ambitious goals. I plan to be right there to see them cross the finish line, knowing that it will only mark a new beginning for them. They are spearheading new frontiers for the Kenyan film scene, determined and unwavering in their pursuit of dreams. As a film student myself, I find it impossible not to marvel at the inspiration they provide.

I love how it kept the article short. I didn't give it a word count or a character limit so I think it's learned about my preferred length from past articles
