As a filmmaker I think the hardest thing that happens is looking at the social pages on your facebook feed where other filmmakers converse and seeing a string of comments that are full of anger, complaints and a mash of disgruntled artists. It at times makes you feel like were are caught up in a hopeless place and that's not always the case.
Building RECA for us is a way of looking at all those things that trouble us and saying we need to stay focused. it's the only way we can tackle every challenge we came across and sometimes having this important conversations on general networking sites like facebook or twitter distracts you from focusing on the things we discuss or the plans we make because as soon as you have left the conversation you are bombarded with funny videos and many other things.
Truth is we need to be able to have a place where it's all about our passions and this is what RECA is...
We are building a home for Africa's storytellers and in a few months will be rolling out tools to support this community. All we need you to do is to answer that call... the amazing films shown in the promo below are just some of the amazing work coming out of our continent and honestly we can do even greater.
