The 9jaStudio Story
"TALENT THRIVES THROUGH TRAINING TOGETHER"
"PROPER PREPARATION PREVENTS POOR PERFORMANCE"
"DISCIPLINE DICTATES DEDICATION DETERMINATION & DRIVE"
The above maxims are what I learned at the Anna Scher Theatre in Islington. They are part of everything we do at 9jaStudio. They were and still are an integral part of my journey and I see them helping others at 9jaStudio everyday.
Frank Adekunle Macaulay - Founder 9jaStudio
Hi I'm Frank Adekunle Macaulay the Founder of 9jaStudio. In 2006 I needed to find a venue I could hire for a workshop on improvisation acting in Lagos.
I was advised to go to the National Theatre which I did. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. The way the place had fallen into disrepair saddened me.
This was when I got the initial inspiration to build a modern, well-equipped acting and filmmaking studio in Lagos.
A safe place for new upcoming actors and filmmakers to come and learn the art and craft of filmmaking in a working professional production studio.
A studio with its own Digital Film Production Company producing Movies, Series and Digital Media.
Being able to practise and learn in a working professional studio is awesome. It allows the actors and filmmakers to do rather than just reading the theory and listening to lectures and tutorials.
Our acting and filmmaking workshops are fully immersive practical experiences from day one.
Actors and filmmakers get accustomed to lights, cameras, sound, props and costumes. They understand what is needed to produce great performances and high production value content.
At 9jaStudio learn how to act and how to produce movies, series and digital content. We have come a long way from that initial improvisation acting workshop.
Join us as the journey is still ongoing.
