Director Biography - Rogers ofime

The journey of a thousand miles, they say begins with a first step. This is the tale of how one of the most renowned film producers in Africa, Rogers Ofime began his journey into what is now an enviably successful career in production.
Rogers took his first step into TV production in 2001 as a television production manager and was privileged to manage several blockbuster movies, television commercials, television drama series and documentaries. After several years of building a strong foundation as a production manager, he took another quantum leap forward in 2005 when he teamed up with South Africa based outfit, Sky Sweeper Films, to produce his first set of television commercial projects. These projects were so successful that several other production companies in dire need of his expertise came calling.
In 2007, Rogers Ofime was appointed as the Line producer for MNet, the biggest satellite television company in Africa and the MNet romance, which spanned over 8 yrs, birthed Tinsel, one of the most popular television series in Africa. The award winning series which was produced and directed in his native country, Nigeria was viewed by millions of viewers across over 48 African countries on both satellite and local television stations.
6 yrs down the line, Rogers embarked on yet another challenging project as he was called upon again by MNet to start a Tele-film initiative where he was meant to put together a 120-member crew that will assist in producing 80 Tele-films in 2013. This was yet another landmark achievement for Rogers as the Tele-film project recorded a remarkable success with several accolades trooping in from far and wide across the continent of Africa.
While in Africa, his creative ability and strong leadership qualities did not only keep the team working together for over 7 long years, it also led the team of over 120 crew, 15 permanent actors and over 500 supporting actors to achieve an applaudable feat of receiving over 10 awards in 2 years.
Furthermore, his aim towards fulfilling his innermost desire of bridging the gap between Africa and the rest of the world led to him moving to Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he set up his own production company named Theatron Media Incorporated with the sole aim of setting high and well desired industry standards for African filmmakers across the globe.
Over time, Rogers has worked hand in gloves with several other amazing local and international producers/directors in the industry such as Tade Ogidan, Alex Mouth, Segun Giwa, Greg Fibresima, Solomon Macaulay, Titus Orpen and a lot more.
One of his greatest achievements till date is being the first ever Nigerian producer to embark on and successfully produce a multi-camera, studio based television daily soap in all of West, East and North Africa.
He finds passion in mentoring upcoming producers as well as making movies that will rank amongst the very best globally.

Some of the projects he had been part of are listed below;

Tinsel (Daily Soap Opera), Project Fame, The Johnson's, The Intern, Business T.V Reality Show etc

Madam Dearest, Protégé, Spinsters, Olive Branch, Homecoming, Blurred Lines, Closed Doors, Undertaking, Target, Dangerous Twins, Love, Playing Games, Maid of Honour, Complicated, 11am etc
