To say that my experience at Storymi Academy was great, would be an understatement!

The documentary program has broadened my perspective and horizons on how to make a good film to meet the International standards and market! It has given me the ability to  feel confident in myself and work! It has exposed me to greater opportunities! I’m more proud of my career as an independent filmmaker.
