Chris Ihidero has announced the third edition of the now-anticipated StoryStory Masterclass series.
A workshop which focuses on the art of storytelling, Story Story Masterclass will hold from April 16 to April 18, 2018.
The event will feature several professionals versed in the art of storytelling across advertising, screenwriting, poetry, photography, visual arts and editing.
StoryStory is open to only creative practitioners, who have made an attempt to tell stories through social campaigns, and screen writing. It is also open to audio-visual content producers, content directors, drama series producers, digital marketing consultants and feature editors, regardless of how successful their attempts have turned out.
Past editions have featured professionals and industry leaders including Steve Babaeko (advertising guru), Ayeni Adekunle (PR and media expert), Victor Sanchez Aghahowa (TV show writer and creator), Tope Oshin (filmmaker), Femi Ogunsanwo (filmmaker) and Emmanuel K Uduma (filmmaker).
Organised by Ihidero, a filmmaker, TV produce and director, the workshop is aimed at empowering and sharing knowledge to a class of thirty-five participants, who were chosen after a rigorous selection process.
Chris Ihidero, who has been telling stories professionally for 21 years, started out as a theatre actor and director, and he has worked as a theatre artist, broadcaster, newspaper columnist, magazine editor and lecturer.
In 2015, he was a producer on the ground-breaking HIV and behavioural change focused drama series, “Shuga.”
