PEFTI Film Institute recently partnered Covenant University to provide added practical training for the university’s Mass Communication undergraduates. The intensive session lasted from 16th – 22nd December 2018 and took place at PEFTI Campus in Ajao Estate, Isolo, Lagos State.
The Film and Broadcast Workshop, organised by PEFTI, integrated Content Creation, Script-Writing, Acting, Cinematography, Directing and Editing. The 105 students were in the capable hands of PEFTI’s best lecturers, as well as two renowned industry practitioners who have worked with several notable brands – Steve Sodiya (Wedding Party 1 & 2, Figurine, Wives on Strike, etc) and John Adeloju (Google, X-Factor, AFRIMA, etc).
During the one-week session, the 200, 300 and 400 Level Mass Communication undergraduates also visited wapTV, Nigeria’s leading Family Entertainment TV channel, where they received thorough, real-world experience with the operations of different departments at the station. They even co-hosted interactive live programmes which were watched by millions of viewers across Nigeria via all Satellite TV providers of wapTV Network; namely DStv 262, StarTimes 116, GOtv 102, StarSat 189, PlayTV 275 and MyTV.
