What is MediaCamp?

Every year at the international-award winning Twim Art Institute (formerly Twim Academy), we host MediaCamp. It’s a fast-track bootcamp training series on a topic in one of our focal areas; media arts, creative arts, performing arts and fashion. Starting in 2014, we’ve held 4 editions as follows:

  • MediaCamp Ibadan, 2014: Video Production
  • MediaCamp Ghana, 2015: Filmmaking
  • MediaCamp Ghana 2016: Multimedia Storytelling and Entrepreneurship
  • MediaCamp Ghana 2017: Multimedia Storytelling

We have recorded remarkable success with our past MediaCamps and have had people attending from different parts of Nigeria. We held 3 international editions in Ghana and are set to hold it in India then Kenya.

Why India

India is the home of Bollywood- the second largest film industry in the world. It has also indisputably earned a spot on the global map for animation and other aspects of post-production worldwide. A good number of popular Hollywood movies and animations are post produced in India.

MediaCamp 2018 provides the opportunity for participants to learn 3D animation using Maya from the top animation school in India. Beyond this,  MediaCamp will expose participants to life in India and a rare opportunity for wildlife photography in one of the top wildlife photography destinations in the world- Kenya!

We should add that The Founder and Rector of The Twim Art Institute, Olumide Adeleye, learnt filmmaking in India.
