Esther Veii Beukes reflects on MultiChoice Talent factory experience

Esther Veii Beukes is one of the three Namibians who are a part of the MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) participants who will be graduating in October from the Academy. She spoke to unWrap.online about her journey and experiences in Lusaka Zambia under MTF.

She highlighted that she will miss working with all the other participants from various countries that she met through the MTF initiative. “I will miss eating with the group. Our lunches in the beginning especially were a great time for all of us to get to know each other better. The best moments were when the group ate together and debated on film,” she said.

For Beukes the MTF initiative was a moment for her to gain knowledge about the filming industry in Africa and she pointed out that it helped her gain in-depth knowledge about the filming industry. “I learned a lot about the art of directing and really just what it takes.I have also learned about how much sound affects the quality of our productions,” said Beukes. Beukes says she wants to make an impact in the film industry in Africa just not Namibia. ” I would like to be involved in more projects that require cross continent collaboration. I love bringing people together and being apart of creating content that transcends boarders,” she said.

She advised the 2019-2020 cohort of the MTF academy to stick to their goals and to gain as much knowledge as they can from MTF. “I would ask them to remain focused on their goals and remember what they need to be gaining during their time at the academy,learn as much as you can and take every opportunity as a challenge, take it by the horns. I would encourage them to keep in touch with loved ones at home to remain grounded and not forget where you come from or even lose yourself within all the madness.” she concluded.
