Emem Isong is a screenwriter, award winning producer and distributor in Nollywood. She is married and a mother of three.
In this interview with The Spark (a youth empowerment platform), Emem Isong talks about her flair for film making which she discovered as a child inspiring her move to studying Theatre arts in the University. The veteran filmmaker has successfully written, produced and directed a good number of movies but her favourite work is “I’ll take my chances”
“I’m passionate about many of my works. But I would say my best work so far is “I’ll Take My Chances”. It’s a movie that had to do with dance and this is because I studied dance – I’m a dance major – I love choreography and so I made a movie that incorporated dance into it.”
Emem believes in sharing of knowledge and youth empowerment. She is also of the opinion that mentorship plays a vital role in youth empowerment.
“It’s always good to mentor people and it’s also good for young people to seek out mentors.”
Being the founder of the prestigious Royal Arts Academy, Emem has offered to empower The Spark’s Rookie of the month winner with a free slot in her academy.
“I would give out a slot in my academy to one person who is interested in either acting, directing or screen writing”
