There’s a lot I seek to achieve with the initiative (IWC) . Women empowerment has surfaced and grown over the years but that doesn’t mean the work is done.

Failure is when you Quit. There you have failed. Failure is bound to occur in the life of an entrepreneur and I am very happy I encountered several failures .

As an entrepreneur one must get ready to fail. The road is never smooth. Most importantly picking yourself up, learning and moving forward is what makes you a success.

A For-Profit social enterprise called Entrepreneurship Hub Africa that organizes the annual African Entrepreneurship and Innovation Summit.

Moses started his entrepreneurial journey in his sophomore year in the university when he started his first business called Parah Deliveries and Coinbase (a company that was to be centered on deliveries and a cryptocurrency called Bitcoin) but the business failed due to lack of tenacity and boldness to run and dominate the sector. Two years after with burning passion for the marketing space, he started a company called City Broadcast which he least knew would rise to become one of the most sort after digital marketing and branding firms in the country. And it has just been a journey of God’s goodness ever since.

The Movie Industry Does Not Breed Alot of Filmmakers Who Are Willing to Take the Bold Risk of Standing Out. – CEO & Founder of Accra Indie Filmfest (AiF) Shares In An Interview With SammytheAuthor.

WhatsApp Image 2020-01-08 at 21.44.49 (1)

1: For the Benefit of those who might not know You, Who is Mr. Evan Eghan?
I’m an Actor who doubles as a Director/Producer and a Writer. I holistically, call myself a “filmtrepreneur” as in film entrepreneur and this is because I try my possible best to span wide my creative capacity as far as filmmaking is concern. I have only been in the film business for about four years now. However, my career experience spans beyond Ghana to another African countries as well as Europe. My acting projects include but not limited to the following; “Divine 419 – Hawkers’ Hustle” (2019) directed by Johannes Krug from Germany, “Stalemate” TV series (2015-2017), “If God Be For Us” (2016) all directed by Pascal Amanfo and produced by Venus Films, “No Man’s Land” (2016) also directed by Pascal Amanfo. “Hooked” (2016) directed by Chima Okoroji from Nigeria, ISIDORE (2018) directed by Nuhu Dalyop also from Nigeria, Samai (2017) directed by Eddie Nartey. On top of my screen acting reel, I have numerous credit for theatre performances as an actor. These credits also include but not limited to the following “Blood and Tears”, “The Trial of Dedan Kimathi”, “The Legend of Aku Sika”, “Fences”, “Perpetua and the Habit of Unhappiness”, and more.

2: Tell us more about Yourself. I mean what’s Your Story? (Family, Education e.t.c)
I lived with my grandparents in a village around Mankessim called Ayeldu and that is where I had my primary education till I was in primary 3 when I moved to stay with my dad in Obuasi in the Ashanti Region. I moved back to the village to my grandparents from when I was in JSS1 till I completed JSS in 2007 at St. Augustine Catholic Junior Secondary School. Afterwards, I had a scholarship to study General Arts with specialty in Literature at Aburaman Senior High School in 2007 till 2011 also in the Central Region. In between this period I was living both in the Central and the Western Region with my elder brothers. In 2012, I won the Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship to study Theatre Arts and Information Studies in the University of Ghana which I completed with a first class in 2016. I did my national service as teaching assistant at the School of Performing Arts assisting the teaching of courses including; Fundamentals of Radio, Film and Television Production, Research Methodology, Media and Society, and African Film and Cinema. So I moved to Accra basically for my university education but I now permanently reside here.

During the period of my national service, I again won a scholarship to do my Masters. However, I had to decline that and discover myself in the world of creative business and to solve practical problems rather than being in the academia. But we will go back to the academia pretty soon after we have gathered enough experience to share and inspire.

3: As the Founder & CEO, what was the Inspiration behind Accra Indie Filmfest (AiF)? Give us an Overview?
I practically realized that, there was a gap in the film industry considering the ground for growth as filmmakers. Elsewhere, there are enough available avenues that kind of help the growing filmmaker to really understand and appreciate the process of growth or realize that whichever level that they are in as filmmakers is part of the growth. Unfortunately here in Ghana, one is practically considered as a filmmaker when he/she makes a feature film and premieres at the cinemas. So Accra Indie Filmfest (AiF) is practically created as the avenue to celebrate the growing filmmakers who are practically using short film productions as the learning ground and creating amazing films that the regular film lover does not have the opportunity to see. Again, AiF stays as the ground for healthy creative collaborations and knowledge exchange among the local and international filmmakers who have the opportunity to be part of this internationally ground-breaking short film festival.

4: What are some of the Challenges You face or still facing as an Actor?
The major challenge is basically lack of opportunities. The industry does not breed a lot of filmmakers who are willing to take the bold risk of standing out as well as searching for other alternatives of storytelling or film marketing. Unfortunately, the already existing distribution channels or systems do not favor so much of the trending filmmakers. So the reality is that, some new filmmakers find it exciting and get into film producing and after one or two films, they are unable to come back to make the films. So if you are a daring actor like myself that is looking for some sort of “extraordinary” films to be starred in, then you are likely never to act. And the regular actor who is even willing to jump on anything, the opportunities are still limited. Because, literally actors are the last to be considered in the process of filmmaking, so if the initial process of production is not commissioned at all, then it does not even get to the casting stage for an actor to get the opportunity to act because almost everybody is scared to make a film for the fear of losing money.

Exclusive: Detailed Info on How We Fund Our Annual Project Budgeted At Over Ghc20,000 Each Year – Executive Director- SpreadAid International Shares!!

Severally, I had to answer this question, ” How does SpreadAid International get to fund projects budgeted at Gh 20,000.00 each year?”
Let me share just four (4) with you.
1. Focus on a higher source: On a lighter note, some of my members say this, “I just dont know how it happens but once you (Julius) say it must be done, it is done” It is that simple. For every single project, my focus is not on who and who would bring what. The focus is on the giver of the vision. Sometimes, I don’t even know where it’s going to come from but I just have the strong resolve that once it’s “God’s project”, it would see the light of day. With that understanding, what I do is to present members and others the opportunity of benefiting from the blessing that comes with being a part of such project(s).
2. Create those who would believe even when you don’t believe anymore:
I have realized through several years of operation and through studies that it gets to times when you even cease believing in you or your dreams- sometimes both. That is a really difficult place to find yourself but it is not out of place- realistically, it’s okay to once in a while battle with such encounters. But don’t ask for it, it could be extremely terrible!
The point however is this; before you get to the place of unbelief, you should have created people or a person who can force you out of your unbelief immediately. Otherwise, it could cost you much more beyond repairs. Create those people with your vision and let them walk in it until they bear the name of that vision. Is that fund, yes! the greatest to have.
