Taking Film & TV To The Kids

Posted by radio On March - 20 - 2017

For a third year running, the Magic In Motion Expo was held for grade 9 students to introduce them to the world of film and television. For four days, Sasani Studios in Johannesburg, welcomed over 3000 learners from around Gauteng. The aim of the expo was to open the minds of the young learners to the untapped careers that exist in the entertainment industry.

Former M-Net employee and now TV and radio host Ashmud Martins was there to welcome the kids and hype them up for the day’s activities. For him, the expo was a great initiative. From humble beginnings himself, he believes that the expo can help uplift and give hope and positivity to the young kids for their future.

 

The highlight for many of the students was seeing their favourite Mzansi Magic actors Andile Gumbi and Gcina Mkhize on a mock Isibaya set. A few students were selected from each group to act a scene with the cast. Their role-play and introduction to the on-set crew left them all in awe of just how much goes into putting a show together.

 

The control room visits, the media operations room and exhibition were part of the package. The expo partnered with 11 tertiary institutions, AFDA, Boston Media House, City Varsity and The Animation School; to name a few. Information, education and exposure- the students had their eyes opened to the variety of study fields that were previously unknown to them.

 

The outgoing Magic In Motion Academy interns were on hand to share their experiences of working in film and television. From getting hands-on experience on various sets, in the control rooms, to working with esteemed producer Bobby Heaneythe grade 9 students left with a wealth of information on how to direct their study paths in future.

 

Reneilwe Sema (Channel Director, Local Entertainment channels), Nkateko Mabaso (Group GM, M-Net South Africa), Yolisa Phahle (CEO) visited the expo and spent some time with the kids. “South Africa has lots of stories to tell. And it’s up to us to learn how to tell those stories”, said Yolisa Phahle.

 

They know and understand the South Africa has a innumerable stories to tell. And it is up to us, as South Africans, to learn how to tell those stories and take them to the world. The world is waiting!
