Neba Lawrence in Cape Town
Ernest Kanjo / Tuesday, 13 April 2010 21:26

film-festivalOne of Cameroon's most-sought-for film directors, Neba Lawrence is in the South African city of Cape Town.  Neba arrived there a forthnight ago for a movie project, sponsored by a young Cameroonian businessman who is resident in South Africa. Shooting of the African glamour movie kicked off of Thursday 8 April 2010. "Everything is moving on smoothly since I arrived in South Africa and I must assure you we are on for a hit movie," Neba told me on the line to Cape Town. The young Cameroonian director is working with a mixed cast made up of actors from Cameroon, South Africa, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Congo and France. It's just another experience for the Yaounde-based filmmaker who has never had such an international mix of actors on set. Neba who in 2008 was declared  by  ACE Awards as the most daring young film director has several movies to his credit including, Black Vampire, Forsaken Rose, Land of Shadows (co-driected with Zack Orji), Great Pain and Royal Destiny. His humility has quickly won him admiration within the film industry in Cameroon. More on the Cape Town project whose title is yet to be declared in subsequent updates.
