Director (Francis Yushau Brown) Statement

I describe myself as an open-minded young man. I believe every action is supposed to be supported by sound reasoning. I am a lover of art and also have interest in history. 
What inspired the choice of my current carrier. I was actually born into an oral storytelling home but I think I was also naturally an artist so any time my Grandmother told a story I start imagining them in pictures. As I was growing up as a boy I noticed that most of the stories I heard were actually social problems which have been developed into stories. So I decided that film (Audio Visual) is a very powerful tool to reach the mass. In Ghana, there are a lot of social issues which are looked on so I decided to enrol in film school after my secondary school education so that I can be making films to educate and entertain the masses.
