M-Net’s 2015 Magic in Motion Academy Interns have been given the opportunity to have two of their original films aired on Mzansi Magic

Twelve top graduates faced their toughest test when M-Net challenged them to create two of their very own films for broadcast! The results were a creation of the drama Ilizwi which will air on December 12 at 19:30 and the romantic comedy The Ring which premieres on December 19 at 19:30.

Both 60-minute movies were conceived, written, produced and directed by the Magic in Motion Academy’s Class of 2015 – Alice Mataboge, Aluta Qupa, Ignatius Shongwe, Kabelo Ramputa, Lele Dinte, Mark Madai, Mbali Zulu, Palesa Rathebe, Sivela Mgudu, Themba Mfebe, Themba Twala and Yalezo Njuguna.

Yolisa Phahle, CEO at M-Net  says: “We’re delighted that the interns were able to successfully deliver two movies and are in the process of making two more. Their tenacity and talent will no doubt see them make a lasting contribution to the local film and TV industry. At M-Net, the transformation of our sector and empowerment of new storytellers are key objectives and they drive the Magic in Motion Academy.”
