Please tell us about Pro Pictures.
Thank you for having us. We are Pro Pictures, a video production company comprising seven members. Our activities encompass the creation of music videos, movies, comedies, and more. Fueled by a shared goal and passion for crafting unique and captivating art, we tirelessly strive to bring about a positive transformation in the production of our movies and music videos. Additionally, we are dedicated to promoting our mother tongues by translating Turkish movies into, at this initial phase Tigrigna. As a side venture, we also undertake various advertising projects.
Your group is admired for its teamwork. Can you share the secret to your successful collaboration?
The key to our successful collaboration is our close age proximity, which allows us to understand and support each other deeply. We’ve cultivated an environment where egos are set aside, and everyone works passionately in their respective roles. Our motivation stems from doing what we love, rather than seeking profits or financial gains. Our unwavering commitment lies in the crucial mission of bringing movies back to cinemas. We’ve honed our teamwork skills through experience and mutual learning. We don’t wait for opportunities; we create them. Despite having just seven members, we multitask across various roles, including editing, photography, videography, translations, and more. Effective communication is paramount to our group’s success.
Could you tell us about the music video that received a nomination?
Certainly. A music video by Elham Ahmed, which we shot and directed, was nominated for the Shamot Awards in 2021. This particular video garnered substantial views on YouTube despite being a modern song. It was honored as the best music video, granting us the exposure we needed. This recognition served as a foundation for our continued growth and expansion. We remain committed to exploring opportunities that allow us to shine on a global stage.
Your team has also developed a mobile application related to movies. Could you elaborate on that?
Our primary objective is to revive cinema by valuing the efforts and energy invested in filmmaking. To achieve this, people should have the opportunity to pay and watch movies, thereby supporting the growth of the art industry. One of our members, from the College of Science and Engineering, developed the Soyra Scope application. His passion and talent drove this initiative, which facilitates paid movie viewing and serves as a marketing strategy to bolster the art industry. It also encourages people to return to cinemas.
How has the feedback from your audience been?
Our fans, especially college and high school students who share our age group, are a tremendous source of motivation. Their feedback provides us with fresh perspectives and insights, driving us to do better and create more captivating content.
What’s the next big move for Pro Pictures?
Our primary focus remains on bringing movies back to cinemas. We are dedicated to producing movies with compelling storylines and meaningful themes that can compete on a global scale. Currently, we are in the process of creating a new movie and continuously improving our music videos. Rest assured, we are committed to delivering work that will leave people enthralled, as we are constantly learning and pushing the boundaries of our creativity.
We are immensely grateful for the opportunity to introduce ourselves and share our work with the nation through this newspaper. Our fans are our greatest inspiration, and we thank them wholeheartedly for their unwavering support.
