As I sit here at 5:12am in Los Angeles....because it is clearly 1:12pm in Lagos State, Nigeria and my body has not adjusted...can only write and look at this picture with all smiles...If you have not ventured out of the country...my suggestion is to visit the beautiful Motherland Africa...words cannot express the tremendous and profound affect visiting this place has had my renewed vision and energy. Mr. Idahosa Linus, the MAN with a great vision and Del-York Creative Film Academy is doing AWESOME things for the entrainment industry in "Nollywood", but the interaction with some of the finest Industry Professionals is what really made this journey worth IT!!! The work has just begun and there is many more things to accomplish with this chapter in my life...but rest assure this was the best way to end my summer!!! Thanks to all my colleagues in this picture (L-R) Ryan Gibson, Screenwriter....Wendy Slipakoff, Set and Costume Design...Grant Housley, Directing...Evon Barros, Editing....and Sarah "PeeWee" Rabuse, MUA.... "WE WENT TO AFRICA....DOG!!!!"
Week three in Lagos and nothing but great things to report....this experience has been AWESOME....I have a renewed energy and look forward to sharing with my friends and family the global perspective. The world is a HUGE place and there is no doubt (like there was ever one) that it is incredibly impossible for a Big Bang to create a world this intricate and beautiful....this picture isfright after lunch on the Famous Victoria Island right off of the mainland....once again I highly suggest and recommend that one MUST visit West Africa!!!!
It has been two AWESOME weeks in the Motherland specifically Lagos Nigeria....I can honestly say this experience is like no other and every American needs to come to this great land....having said that...let the work begin...the guy to the far left is Mr. Linus..he is the MAN!!! Let me say it again he is the MAN...a Dreamer making opportunities for his people "Nollywood is going to change because of Mr. Linus and his choices"...he's the "Jamal Speakes" of Nigeria!! And let me tell you...rolling with him...is like rolling with the President!!!
