Uganda’s movie industry still lags behind despite the number of local talent in Uganda. Despite all this great talent in the movie industry, there is lack of audience and investment to the film industry in the country unlike developed countries like the United States of America.
It is because of this that Development Channel decided to boost the movie industry in the country. Development Channel provides the movie industry with the latest version of black magic. Only 4 of URASA Min Pro Black-magic 4.6k are in the country and 2 of those 4 have been provided by Development Channel to the movie industry.
In the words of former USA President Barak Obama, when America was founded as a new country, the Founding Fathers wanted to base the foundations of the country off of ideals. .The ideals made the country and the people thrive to become the World’s most powerful nation. These ideals were instilled through the movie industry in America. Hollywood grew to shape the collective thoughts and the ideas of the nation and the world at large.
It is through the same spirit that Development Channel has handed over 2 state of the art cameras to renowned award winning actors Mathew Nabwiso and Eleanor Nabwiso. Development Channel has also gone ahead to invite Nollywood’s famous acting duo “Aki and Pawpaw” to work with the budding movie industry in Uganda.
During the handover at Development Channel’s Corporate Office, the Chairman, Charles N. Lambert explained that it is high time that we created a “new nation” and this nation must be a United Africa where the next generation must higher its sights. Africa’s economy has been badly weakened for far too long and that has been a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Chairman Development Channel showed that the challenges Africa faces are real, serious and are many but we believe that with the empowerment of the film industry, Uganda and Africa is a step closer to becoming a new nation under the new ideals.
In reaffirming the greatness of Africa, we understand that greatness is never given, it must be earned. That is why Development Channel is taking the lead in earning this greatness through the Economic War.
