Hopewell Chin’ono Finally Shares His award Winning Film ‘Last White Man’

Hopewell Chin’ono has finally released his award-winning documentary film ‘Last White Man’ with an African audience, after a decade of his admirers imploring him to do so.

In a message seen by ZiMetro News on his Twitter, Chin’ono said:

Some young people have asked me to share some of my international work which wasn’t broadcast in Africa.

Today I am sharing, Last White Man, a documentary film where I was the Director of Photography and Sound.

When I won a scholarship to read Documentary Filmmaking in Britain, instead of choosing the required courses only for my second Masters degree, I decided to study all the optionals that were on offer for the program.

I threw myself into my studies at Brunel University in order to get every skill on offer on that course, and the result is that there is nothing that I can’t do in filmmaking.

Some chose to focus on the bare minimum requirement for specializing on the program.

I realized that this was a once in a lifetime chance so I took all the courses on offer.

My advise to young prospective filmmakers or broadcasters is to study everything available.

This has allowed me to not only become a documentary film director but to be director of photography, sound and have editing skills and also to work in television news s a reporter, producer or camera.

In this film I deployed my camera and sound training to use.
