WELCOME TO ACTORS.CO.KE

Gerald Langiri
August 19 / 2011

We would like to give you the heartiest welcome, to this web tool, first of its kind in Kenya, we thought long and hard to see what we may be lacking in Kenyas film industry.

What came out rather clearly, was that we do not have a direct link with our screen/stage actors in Kenya, and even further the entire Kenyan film industry fraternity. Having made this finding, we came up with this idea to bring you closer home to the actors and the industry players, being the background within which Actors.co.ke was birthed. .

We want a forum to journey with the industry, involve both the viewers, fans and critics alike to come alive, and join us in growing an industry that dates back to even before Kenya gained its independence. Just as a child is born and celebrations rent the air, we realize that our expectations just lie in the fact that a new life has arrived, and the outcome much as not definite is always one everyone is hopeful for, and preferably, participate in creating. .

Having said that, the child that is here, namely actors.co.ke, is looking forward to your involvement and ownership in order to aid in its purpose to be fulfilled within the Kenya film industry. The reason for this is to present you with an opportunity to facilitate the contribution and improvement of our film industry, given that Kenya is the land of some amazing people, whose lives are full of stories that can inspire and be even entertaining. .

So join us in starting this journey that I believe, will lead us to the journey of maturity and explosion in this tool that showcases the Kenyan film family. Twende Kazi!!!!!! .

ACTING AND AUDITIONING TIPS

Posted on Aug 01, 2011

A group of editors in Russia once wanted to test the concept and level of audience participation in the telling and understanding of film narrative. They took a shot of a man seemingly looking at something off set and decided to cut it into two different scenes. The first scene was a jovial party with dancing and laughter and the usual party shenanigans. The shot of the man was inserted into the p...

THE UNWRITTEN RULES OF THE SET

Posted on Aug 31, 2011

I recently had the pleasure of attending the auditions for a local TV Series, Higher Learning and had the good fortune of landing a role in the series. Shooting begins in the next four days and in light of this, all the cast had to attend a meeting to introduce the new members of the cast to everyone else, and to set the pace for the upcoming shoot. Most of the talk the producers gave us though wa...

SHOULD ONE ATTEND ACTING CLASSES?

Posted on Jun 18, 2013

I hear of someone attending acting classes and I laugh. Then cry. Then start to ponder for a while. I eventually end up biting my nails and removing the foreskin on my fingers. I am sure there is a scientific name for that skin; then again, those are the disadvantages of not attending medical school. My mixed emotions on acting classes really refers me to (this is where virgins stop reading this a...

Kenyans4Kenya:Why we do not support our own.

Posted on Jul 25, 2011

First and foremost, let us please close our eyes and say a word of prayer for the Kenyans who have perished due to the worst hit famine that has hit our country for over a decade. Close your eyes further and possibly staple them together and pray some more for our government who have claimed (and allow me to quote) -No death has occurred from the famine- and who also had foreseen drought spells co...
