Genii is a mini documentary series focused on demystifying the creation process but yet telling stories of ordinary people who give themselves wholly to ideas that make them become truly extraordinary. This series, which is shot in my typical black and white style, aims to capture the raw essence of the moment and help everyone who watches see the effort being put into the process. Great stories are built over time but within 10 – 15 minutes, these documentaries find a way to use an interesting mix of audio and video to speak about the past , present and future in one breath.
In this 1st season of Genii, the team and I speak to Praiz (multi award winning Nigerian RnB artist), Daniel Ogbogu (Aggressive Rollerblader), Osa Seven (Nigeria’s foremost graffiti artist), Godwin Strings (Ace violinist) , Darey Art-Alade (Multi award winning recording artist, producer and entrepreneur), Anee Icha (Actress) , Mai Atafo (A-list Fashion designer) and Chef Linda Esuabana (Head chef Smolefok pots and Loaf Avenue).
