Pace setter in the local film industry Ben Mahaka who is one of the selection judges for the current intake in the MultiChoice Talent Factory Academy for Southern Africa, is happy by the amount of genuine talent and enthusiasm that exists among young Zimbabweans hoping to make it big in this demanding field of endeavor
“I thoroughly enjoyed being a judge for the MTF Academy,” he said.“Interacting with highly driven young creatives who are at the coalface of our growing industry is always a joy for me. And being a part of the process that offers the best of them a unique opportunity through the MultiChoice Talent Factory is a great honour. I’m always watching to see what comes out at the other end of the process.”
Ben Mahaka is a director of Mahaka Media and has been in the industry for more than 20 years, and believes Zimbabwe has a major role to play in the growth and development of the world of film and television production.
“This that means we must introduce more people into the industry, people who will be part of this growth and, indeed, will spur it on, and lead it into an ever-expanding future,” he said.
“I am pleased to have been part of a worthwhile exercise and I was especially delighted by the high levels of talent I saw in our selection activities.”
