Seun Opabisi of Loups Garous

Who is Seun Opabisi?

A maker of things (seriously) and half of the Loups Garous Film Collective. I used to draw in my former life, now I currently help my friends make films and run a Boutique Post Production Studio.

What are you up to these days? 

I just wrapped post production work on a friend’s debut feature film which will be in cinemas sometime soon.  The film’s title is “Ojukokoro”, he’s about to be one of Nigeria’s brightest directors and I’m glad he brought me on the journey, he made some dope shit, man! I spent about 3 months on that & only just wrapped a week ago, so I’m currently taking a bit of a break to do some music video work and personal projects before getting back onto long form client stuff.

Your take on Social Media?

I’m a big fan of the “Internet Of Things”. The internet of things is how a Skepta can efficiently distribute an album to a global audience from the comfort of his own home, or Uber can run a taxi related business without “owning vehicles” or dealing with Seye; the mechanic’s 405 excuses. That said, I believe Social media is a tool and like any tool, it can be used for good and evil. In the right grip, it could be loaded gun, in another, a hammer. I also believe in unplugging frequently, having so

much information at your finger times can be bad for your mental health or productivity. It’s okay for you to drop your device and log out, Nigerian Jollof would still be the greatest when you get back.

What’s your preferred medium of art creation? 

Its currently film, I love being able to capture your ears and eyes at the same time. It’s a beautiful feeling really, “eating jollof on a Sunday” – good

The future of film and art in Nigeria? 

There’ll be more unique voices, more spaces for artists and film makers of all genres and styles alike to create whatever they want, as well as audiences that’ll pay for their creations. There’ll also be less people muttering “I don’t like Nigerian movies” at Silverbird cinema.

Dream vacation spot? 

Tokyo. I’m currently obsessed with watching the “88rising” channel on Youtube.

 If you are to have your island of pet animals, what animal? 

Does the House of Assembly count? If yes, any Nigerian politician will do, all they do is bark.

 Are you a car fan?

Nope. If I had a choice, I’d teleport everywhere.

Inspiration outside art. 

Nigerian Women. I live for the drama
