Since yesterday was a day of celebration, I wasn’t able to post. So here I am mashing up day one and day two. They are, after all, things related to the screen.
Why was I celebrating yesterday? You ask. Well, on my portfolio now I can add award winning scriptwriter and voice-over artist.
See, at the Uganda Film Festival Awards (UFFAs) on Friday, an animation whose production I was part of won the best animation!
I am all sorts of excited… And I can’t wait for all of you to see this labour of passion.
The 2D animation short is based on a poem I wrote, about a time passed and war that is still being fought on female genital mutilation. It’s written from the perspective of a young girl who’s recounting the moments before going through an infibulation.
I think I am now a certified celebrity and I can give autographs, like a doctor certified to prescribe medicines. The autographs are free now but will get considerably expensive when I get an Oscar.
There were other movies I could tell you about, but for 2018, this stood out for me. OK, maybe Deadpool came close.
I’m cheating with this one, by saying the fourth season of Black Mirror.
I have an almost fanatic obsession with this series. And I have hyped it enough that my friends now associate me with Black Mirror.
This series explores technology and the human condition. It’s an anthology series and features stand alone episodes and it’s absolutely brilliant! Each episode features its own cast of unique characters, including stars like Bryce Dallas Howard, Jon Hamm, Daniel Kaluuya, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Letitia Wright.
Season 5 is rumored to be premiering on the 28th of November and I, for one, can’t wait..
See y’all tomorrow.
