Amateur Heads Productions is a film, television and new media development, production, packaging and distribution company. Producing and delivering cutting-edge and socially conscious film and television content that is both evocative and entertaining, providing an unrivalled quality of work for an emergent marketplace. We target both the international film festival circuits and the local theatrical and television platforms, creating content that tell the Nigerian story in particular and the African story in general from an indigenous perspective.
Our business is to create and provide entertainment that can be viewed on a screen. From the cinema screen to the mobile phone, our challenge is to keep our audience engaged. Our approach in this modern world is to develop original stories, realizing that despite the sophistication and fast-paced life of everyone around, at the core of it, what we enjoy is a good story. That is our innovative process developing homogenous but world-class stories across various media platforms but with clear and particular emphasis on international accessibility with local appeal.
