In an ever-changing and evolving world, the need for intriguing audio-visual material rises.

My name is Siphumeze Tase. I have recently been accepted by the New York Film Academy in the Masters of Fine Arts in Filmmaking program, spanning over two years in Los Angeles. After months of scrutiny and back and forth communication the acceptance was based on talent, vigor, skill, and capability, which they found in my creative portfolio. The NYFA boasts of a number industry professionals that have won Academy Awards in various categories such as Steven Spielberg, Ben Stiller, Richard Dreyfuss and many more, that also partake in our growth.

As I do not have any plans of staying in the US after the completion of this Masters Degree, I feel that every bit of knowledge gained will be beneficial to the growth and development of Film in South Africa.

The investment of your time is one that I can never repay but can only reciprocate by my above mentioned sentiments. So whether you play a part in pointing me in the correct direction for funding, purporting my cause to others and even
