Black Genes!

“I did it! Now to edit.”

“It” is the short film (with a rock theme) that Kagure Njagi - yet another ROFFEKE founding member - asked me to help her write:

“Hey! I got Mostafa to be in my production, but I have no idea what the production is…HELP!”

So I helped. We met at the bomb blast park to discuss the way forward. We brainstormed about the concept and she finally came up with one that we both liked. And though I was swamped, I agreed to send her the script by evening the next day.

3.30pm the next day. I still hadn’t sat down to tackle the script. The truth was, I was afraid and was suffering from self doubt: “Who are you to write another script when you haven’t even finished typing and proof-reading the one you started four years ago?”

But at 4pm, I killed that nasty, accusing voice, prayed to my higher power and hoped for the best. Two hours later, I emerged with the script! Four days later, Kagure shot the film:

“I did it! Now to edit.”

And yesterday, Kagure sent me two promo pics for BLACK GENES.I am soooooo proud of her!:-)
