The multitalented creative director, who runs Abinibi Multimedia (in Lagos), and has worked with Kunle Afolayan on various movie projects like IRAPADA, THE FIGURINE and most recently, THE CEO, is showcasing his self-directed and produced project titled, A GREAT DAY.
A Great Day is a short film that highlights a day in the life of Tony, a job seeker played by Whochey Nnadi. Tony is woken up by Ade (Kenny Soloman), who brought a shirt he helped him wash and iron in preparation for the job interview.
On Tony’s way to the interview he encounters a series of setbacks which could have stopped him from getting to the location of the interview, but he forges ahead, regardless. The film is basically a breakdown of the hilarious events that happened on the road to the interview.
In addition to Whochey Nnadi and Kenny Soloman, other casts to look out for are Crystabel Goddy as Titi, Emmanuel Ilemobayo as Kango, Akinyele Ogidiolu as Para and Cute Kimani as Lisa.
James Abinibi is a renowned Digital Medial Entrepreneur whose works have earned him critical acclaim locally and internationally. His foray into ?lm making started about 10 years ago when he started shooting music videos that got prominent airplay on MTV Base, Soundcity, HipTV and terrestrial stations across Nigeria.
In Mr. Abinibi’s words, “There are a lot of untold stories that need to be told for the global audience to see, they just need to be told in the most realistic ways. A Great Day is a film everybody should watch”.
