STATEMENT ON AN INDIAN INVESTOR INTERESTED IN SETTING UP AN ANIMATION MEDIA INSTITUTE FOR RELEASE TO THE MEDIA ON JUNE 22, 2017 


An Indian company has pledged to invest 75 Million US Dollars in establishing Africa’s biggest animation media institute in Zambia.


SENFRA Limited Director SURESH KUMAR says his company would train and employ three hundred youths and another 3 thousand indirectly.


He says the move will significantly encourage artists to make a difference in their lives adding that it is time for Zambia to create content that has more worldwide demand.

 

MR. KUMAR said this when he called on Zambia’s High Commissioner to India JUDITH KAPIJIMPANGA at the Zambian chancery in New Delhi, India.


And Zambia’s High Commissioner to India JUDITH KAPIJIMPANGA says Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation and QTV have intimated that they want skill exchange programmes that would transform Zambia’s film industry.


Mrs. KAPIJIMPANGA says India has one of the largest and most prolific cinema industries in the world and motion capture is a trend that needs to gain momentum in Zambia.


“I know that with motion capture being a much quicker process than the traditional systems currently in place, artists will enjoy more creative freedom when deadlines are no longer a problem,” she said.


Mrs. KAPIJIMPANGA who is also accredited to Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Maldives and Singapore says the animation institute will help the Zambian film industry diversify into as yet untapped forms of storytelling through film.


“Some young Zambians in the animation and effects community are well aware of the new technologies and filmmaking methods out there, thanks to online education media, forums, and conferences, all they need is proper training from institutions like yours,” she said.
