After 3 years of trainig screenwriters and actors at a zero cost to them at Asaba Film Academy (AFA), we're so pleased to announce that our pioneering AFA trainees are ready to embark on their Nollywood career.

An AFA-trained screenwriting team has just completed writing their first feature film screenplay, Asia: The Love Covenant. An audition is scheduled for AFA-trained actors to compete for character rolls on 28 October 2017. Nollywpod veterans will be invited to audition for character rolls AFA-trainees cannot handle.

All things being equal, we should be done with this and other preproduction activities in about a month and shift into the production (principal photography) phase.

We're still open to taking investors on board as we're yet to hit the upper limit of our film budget. We encourage you to come on board and be part of history. Each Naira/Dollar goes a long way. We'll reimburse you and share profit with you. This is crowdfunding for a good course. Let's make it happen for any of the long list of reasons that makes sense to you.

Please, note that we're still training creative and pationate Nigerians for the same purpose - we train, we empower, we hire and we mentor creative and pationate Nigerians into Nollywood. Send us your folks that are interested in building a Nollywood career but don't know how to got about it.

John Chuka Productions LLC is a legal entity registered with the Secretary of State in California, USA for the purpose making use of Nollywood raw talent and passion in combination with Hollywood knowledge and technology to produce and distribution films that prioritize African narratives. On arrival to Nigeria, home to the most successful film industry in Africa, otherwise known as Nollywood , we realized we needed to train our own cast and crew if we want to make quality films. So, we launched Asaba Film Academy with the primary purpose of training talented and passionate Nigerians and mentor them into Nollywood. We started with our flagship acting program, because most Nigerians are interested in acting. Quite early into the journey, we realized these talented and passionate Nigerians lack the funding to pay for our training. Hence we decided to train them for free and have them pay us when they become gainfully employed in Nollywood. We presently have about 50 actors trained and we're mentoring them into Nollywood. We send them around the country to attend auditions and book jobs. Many of them can't attend these auditions because they lack the financial ways and means to support themselves. We figured they need flexible jobs they could jump on whenever they need to raise quick money to support their careers. So we tapped into the popular local moped transportation budsiness in Asaba. Whenever you're in town, look out for Door to Door Mopeds (D2D Mopeds). Our actors driver them around town in uniforms, whenever they need to raise money to attend auditions. They have professional training from a driving school recommended by the Road Safety commission. Please, Patronize them and tip them well as a token of support for our empowerment effort. Please share.

A well-articulated screenplay revolves around the main character's life experience - Professional, Personal and Private. And the best screenplays emanate from embellished personal life experience. You don't have to be a professional screenwriter to write and sell good screenplays. Asaba Film Academy seeks professionals from any and all disciplines to share their fascinating career experiences on the pages of screenplays that espouse the African narrative for the purpose of educating and entertaining fellow Africans. These screenplays will serve as blue prints for AFA-sponsored film and TV projects for cinema screenings and TV broadcasts. We need Doctors, Engineers, Lawyers, Teachers, Soldiers, Police Officers, etc. Join our special 4-month long screenwriting training workshop schedule to commence on the 18th of June 2016. Lectures will hold on Saturdays and Sundays only. Asaba Film Academy will train you for free (if you can't afford to pay for the training) and buy your screenplays. Call the office of the Administrator for any and all enquiries. You may visit us at 19 Okelue St. Off Nnebisi Rd. Opp. Wema Bank. West End, Asaba, Delta State, Nigeria. Please share.

I've been on a 4-month working visit to Nigeria and I'm halfway through. I would like to spend a reasonable chunk of the remaining half of my time giving something remarkable to my Nigerian FB friends, fans and well-wishers before I return to the US.

I created Filmmakers' Dialect a few years ago, while I was a student at New York Film Academy, so as to enable me share freely with you, some of the knowledge I was then acquiring. I shared quite a lot on screenwriting, then. Now, I wanna do it again, and I’m excited I have the opportunity to do it in a B&M (bricks and mortar) environment, this time around.

Depending on the indicated interest, I would like to host a-week-long intensive screenwriting workshops in a few Nigerian cities. Abuja, Asaba, Lagos and Port Harcourt are on the slate right now. Subject to demand, a new city could be added to the slate.

Prior knowledge or experience in screenwriting is not required. If you can read and write, you can write that story in your head into a marketable screenplay. If you already can write a screenplay, you'll learn one or two new tricks from me (Hollywood-trained and African Oscars winning filmmaker) that can make you a better screenwriter. I assure you that at the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to write your own stories and market them in Nollywood.

If interested, please send me an email at [email protected] or text me at 070.6157.7986 to indicate your interest in the workshop and also let me know your city of interest. In order to offset the cost of organizing it, a token fee of N15K (Fifteen Thousand Naira) will be required.

As a startup film production company, we need funds to implement our mission and ultimately actualize our vision. Hence, we've designed an investment package that affords potential investors around the world to work smart instead of working too hard, by letting their money do most of the work for them. The investment package is designed such that any potential investor with as little as $300.00 (Three Hundred US Dollars) in discretionary funds is at able to come on board, if willing. Return on investment is amazing. We, at John Chuka Productions LLC, recognize the fact that filmmaking can be very rewarding in cash and kind when it's well planned and properly executed. Hence, we believe that all stakeholders (actors, producers, directors, investors, etc) at any level should be able to experience a dividend. As a result we've designed a program that allows our investors to bring their acquaintances on board as investors and earn a commission for their input. The company pays 10% in investment units or 5% in cash. The rational behind this initiative is that the bank would charges us money in fees and interest for loaning us money. We would rather pay that money to our investors if they would help us achieve the same goal as the bank by giving us access to funds we otherwise wouldn't have been able to access. Any interested party should reach us at [email protected]. We'll be glad to sen you more information on the investment opportunity.
