Ten trainees Monday graduated from Kunle Afolayan Production (KAP) Film and Television Academy after a ten-week intensive training on post-production techniques.
The diploma course is a partnership programme with the University of Southern California’s (USC) School of Cinematic Arts (SCA) and the global streaming platform Netflix to impart knowledge to improve the skill of young filmmakers, and by extension, improve the overall production quality of films from the local film industry.

The academy is the brainchild of Kwara state born filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan.
