“Sometimes we delay on our schedule due to lack of finance as we are actually required to put in administration efforts timeously, whilst going out and expanding our trainee’s practical knowledge, thus enabling them to get exposed to the diverse media industry challenges. The mentoring culminates in thrilling moments that express love and passion, courage and confidence, support and dedication. At times it is difficult to cater for all trainees at once because of the lack of sufficient equipment.” Related William Mphuthi, crew manager.
