Elated, humbled, happy was how I reacted when I heard that “The Inlaws yobi.tv/yobifilm/contestant/18655/filmmakerjoash/the-inlaws” had won the best short drama at the 2nd annual slumfilmfestival.org/
Trophy of the winning Short Drama "The Inlaws"
I kind of gave up on it, and concertrated to write other scripts that am sure are going to blow peoples minds.
“The Inlaws yobi.tv/yobifilm/contestant/18655/filmmakerjoash/the-inlaws ” was my first script I wrote. Its based on a true story, about stigma women face in many African society when their spouses die.
It feels wholesome , like I don’t know…to be called an award winning upcoming filmmaker.
And I can only be greatful to kiberafilmschool.blogspot.com/v for the training I get each day. It’s a place where you get the right training, direction, I can honestly say its the best film school in Kenya and a rising jewel.
I enjoy making films. I have learnt a great deal to be patient for pre-production takes a lot of time.
The most begging question i always ask my self is “How will the audience react? "Wow is pretty scary…but i like criticisms".
At times my scripts are pretty complicated I aspire and wish to shoot them as they are for there is a way I wish to tell my stories.
Joash Mageto, The writer/director/cameraperson for "The Inlaws"
Life through film is wholesome. I wish to be a stroryteller and a better one.
