"Our objective is to go full time into film production, but we're professional marketers too so we do operate as marketing consultants for small businesses (concept, implementation, advertising and promo)"
Here is an interview with one of the brothers!!
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Cyril Ndoko Nambangi. I live in Dallas, TX and I'm a professional advertising copywriter and a filmmaker. My passion is filmmaking. I am currently CEO of THE NAMBANGI BROTHERS, a film production company based in Minnesota.
Who are the "Nambangi Brothers"?
The Nambangi Brothers are a filmmaking trio of siblings Cyril and Sidney Nambangi, and Eric Enongene. Each brother has a strong background in computers and multimedia. We are based in Texas, Minnesota and Sweden respectively, the brothers utilize multimedia to remotely collaborate on projects. Cyril provides the creative concept/idea, Sidney does the research, graphics and storyboards and Eric in charge of logistics and management. The task of project execution is entrusted in the hands of the principal filmmaker, Cyril Nambangi.
Cyril - The Film Maker....
Eric - The Logistics Maestro
Sidney - The Graphic Artist..
How did it all start?
We've always been film enthusiasts, growing up. And everyone also has a competitive and analytical mind. Many times after watching; or in our case "reviewing" other people's productions, we've always criticised and pondered how we could have done it better. That's just how we grew in confidence and fortified our determination to follow that path. Oh, plus we're very creative, so we know we can go head to head with the best and not even break into a sweat....hahaha
A brief about the "short" film Sicko.
The short film "Sicko" is just our way of introducing ourselves to the world. It tells our style -creative, edgy, witty, humurous, and even over-the-top, but at the same time you can tell it was not just for entertainment purposes. We used a unique style to ask a pertinent question that's been lingering on many people's minds.
What are the challenges you face in film production as a start up production company?
The main challenge is funding!We are focusing on short films now simply because they cost less to produce and are a great tool for advertising and showcasing our creative depth. Many people do not realize that it truly does take a lot to tell a compeling story in 5 minutes as opposed to telling one in 2 hours.
Our focus is short films while we raise funds for a feature film. We will collaborate with IR Media House (based in Minnesota) for future projects and possibly a feature.
We have a unique brand of storytelling that is itching to be unleashed.
