"Snapped Nigeria" Here's everything you need to know about this great opportunity for Nigerian filmmakers

'Snapped the Movie' is a simple concept produced by creating a narrative sequence of multiple short Snapchat films for Snapchat "My Story."

  • Published:

A fantastic opportunity for Nigerian directors and actors to be part of an innovative ‘social movie’ collaborative film project will be happening in Lagos this January and February 2016.

Following on from the success of ‘Snapped The Movie’, the UK’s first ever short film specifically created for and shown on Snapchat, 2far Media is set to create Snapped Nigeria (working title), the next Snapchat movie which will be set and filmed in Lagos.

To be produced by Kemi Lala Akindoju, and written by Bola Agbaje, "Snapped the Movie" is the brainchild of 2far Media and is produced by creating a narrative sequence of multiple short Snapchat films for Snapchat ‘My Story’.

"Snapped Nigeria" will be shown live on Snapchat on February 22, and will be the focus of a panel discussion on February 26, held as part of the programme of events at the high profile Social Media Week Lagos 2016 conference.

A unique way of creating film content for young audiences in a format they like to engage with, the films are recorded entirely on a mobile phone and, alongside the characters, the mobile phone itself becomes a character in the world created.

The short film appears for only 24 hours on the ‘My story’ feature on Snapchat.

The final version of the first movie can be viewed at Snappedthemovie.com.

To be a part of the project, send your short bio, contact details, descriptions and links to snappednigeria@gmail.com.
