Meanwhile, Malawians should expect local film content on DStv and GOtv to be premiered in January as production has already been rolled out through Tauka Arts Pictures Production Company — managed by actor, script writer, producer, editor and director, Precious Pungulani Denja.
Tauka Arts Pictures gave MultiChoice the confidence that it shall produce the right content for the first Malawian series for OneZed, the entertainment channel of DStv and GOtv.
Born and raised in Malawi, Denja began his career in film in 2006, working on productions in Malawi and collaborating with fellow industry veterans and featuring in more than 20 productions.
Denja says: “It is an honour, I owe all this to God Almighty, the provider of talent. I am not special, but my Lord is. I thank OneZed for according Malawi such an opportunity.”
This initiative to have Malawian stories be featured on OneZed is part of the MultiChoice Expansion Program-Project Pamodzi, which was launched in Malawi in July.
Project Pamodzi seeks to reiterate MultiChoice’s commitment to investing in Malawi’s TV and film industry through skills development programmes offered through the MultiChoice Talent Factory — thus initiating the production of the first Malawian series for the OneZed channel on GOtv and DStv.
“We are excited to contribute toward the enablement of local job creation and entertainment through the production of this series,” Gichonge had said when unveiling Tauka Arts Pictures.
“Through our skills development programmes and investment in Malawi’s creative industries, we hope to provide a stage for authentic and original Malawian stories to be told.”
MultiChoice assures its customers that more details will be shared on the progress of the production and last month, MultiChoice Malawi’s Corporate Affairs Manager, Zena Makunje said the local filmmakers and producers have scripted a Malawian story, which subscribers should expect to be the best.
