Today we’re joined by Kolawole Olarewaju, the founder of Komotion Studios, a Lagos based animation company working on their first feature film: Dawn of Thunder. The movie is a fictional rendition of the life and times of Shango, the god of lightning and thunder. Kolawole joins us to talk about the film and his journey thus far as an animator.
Support them on Indiegogo as they work towards creating the first full length CGI feature film produced in West Africa.
