Kelani, in a statement mentioned that the film school has been his most notable success. According to him, the institution will help to groom people who are interested in building a career in the movie industry.

He said, “I call this my career highlight. There is so much experience I have garnered over the years and I have decided to give back.”

One of the attendee at the school, Bamidele Adetayo, told Punch’sSunday Scoop, that his experience at the institute has motivated him to want to fully invest in movie production.

‘‘The training I received has prepared me. The short film project we are working on has further strengthened my resolve to excel. I am ready to explore the world of motion pictures,” he said.

Some of these are "Ti Oluwa Ni Le" (1993), "Saworoide" (1999) and "Campus Queen" (2004).
