The Multichoice Talent Factory is an afro-cinema mentoring wing that is aimed at shaping Africa’s movie production industry by equipping enthusiasts with the required knowledge to produce high-quality movies & series.
Launched in March 2019 as the third touchpoint of MultiChoice Africa’s ground-breaking corporate shared value (CSV) initiative, the MTF portal is a pan-African, film and television digital marketplace for information sharing on all aspects of Africa’s creative industry.
While the Talent Factory previously involved physical classes in different countries across Africa, Multichoice has now shifted the benefits online through masterclasses available on the MTF Portal.
We are launching with the Produce Like a PRO! masterclass series, a 20-module masterclass on production from pre to post. If you have missed any of our MTF masterclasses in our 13 markets, we have recorded them for you to watch on the go—Multichoice’s press statement read.
Comprising of 20 carefully crafted modules, the Produce Like a PRO! series is MTF’s answer to the industry need for easier access to training material, tutorials and templates.
The masterclasses are currently available to over 25,000 registered users with a profile on the MTF portal. For new users, filling in the Signup form on the website grants you direct access to the free masterclasses.
The new offering, according to the CEO of General Entertainment Yolisa Phahle, is part of MultiChoice Group’s mission to upskill emerging creatives and seasoned professionals in the Film and TV industry.
The MTF portal is supported by our various partners including DOLBY, the NYFA, AVID through JASCO Broadcast Solutions, Nihilent, among other international and local industry partners.
