Lola Kenya Screen has equipped me well to effectively put in practice what I had theoretically studied in Journalism/Mass Communication. I can now say that I am a fully equipped media practitioner, something that I could not have flaunted before joining Lola Kenya Screen as I couldn’t really tell to which department of media I belonged.

I am grateful for the support of the company’s managing trustee and creative director for being of a great help to me, especially during the time that I felt overwhelmed by the pressure of work.

Harry Kiplagat Yegon, Video Production Intern, From Technician to Artist, Lola Kenya Screen Internship, Nairobi, April-August 2015I manage to complete at least 90% of the work given to me during my 16 weeks of internship. This is a great achievement by any standard. I was also exposed to other areas like film criticism, media and information literacy and talent and event management. I have now graduated from a purely assembly line technical producer to a creative one as well!

It will be of great advantage if the management increases the number of interns in every department for more productivity to be generated. I also urge the management to come up with a television channel to produce and air cultural stories from eastern Africa through which video production interns could showcase their talents. This will further expand the screening avenues beyond the current weekly school outreach, fortnightly mobile cinema, monthly film forum and annual film festival.
