Donald Chidamba, a fourth year film and theater arts student at MIDLANDS State University (MSU), released a horror short which was recently premiered on the institution’s Zvishavane campus, established NewsDay Life & Style.
Chidamba wrote and directed the film, titled The Tunnel, while MSU staff member Tawanda Musimwa edited it.
The institution said in a statement that the 19-minute film was shot on a zero budget and is expected to go through various film festivals and competitions.
In 2016, Chidamba was among a group of MSU students who won a community engagement award at an awards ceremony held in Jordan.
The students submitted a video in the sustainability category, which highlighted the different activities they were doing on the main campuses of Zvishavane and Gweru.
“As part of sustainability (category), teams had to highlight the duration of the positive impacts of their activities, show evidence of community ownership and engagement of key stakeholders as well as cost effectiveness”, MSU said.
Everson Kudakwashe Chieza, Chidamba and Thamusanqa Gumpo, then second year students, edited and produced the video, while students from the English and
Communications and Marketing Department Hazel Halima and Talent Chitepo ensured that the club’s activities were documented and marketed respectively.
