A Crowdfunder towards starting up a digital film publication and production company.

by Dàfe Oboro in Lagos


Hello, I am Dáfe Oboro - a filmmaker and UK accredited Broadcast Journalist. Since graduating university with a degree in journalism I have worked as a photographer and filmmaker. I am now putting all that I have learned over the past years into starting up a digital film publication and production company that's true to my art and person, named DÁFE

This is my Crowdfunder page to help fund and jump-start the film company. Please support me. My goal is to raise at least £3000 by November 30th 2017. All proceeds raised will go directly towards general startup expenses i.e:

- Company name registration, 

- Buying production and post-production equipment

- Renting a studio or office space, 

- Employing a film and studio assistant. 

With enough financial support, DÁFE will be able to  produce and publish original thought provoking documentaries and short films whilst working closely with a team of talents to tell factual stories visaully rather than talking about it - for both our clients and the DÁFE brand.

I appreciate you and the donation you make. Please donate whatever you can.

Thank you ever so much,
