    Hello, I'm Marshal Negus and I come from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. When I was young, I always dreamed of creating movies. I have fond memories of traveling on the train from Victoria Falls to a village where my father had a business. Sitting in the window seat, I would watch the trees go by as the train passed through hills and valleys. I imagined capturing the moments of people on the train, their conversations, and their behavior in the coaches. I observed and listened to them, enjoying the sound of laughter and everything else. This moment sparked my love for filmmaking. My favorite quote comes from the Swahili language: "Ukiona vyaelea jua vimeundwa" which means "If you see things looking good, it's because it took time to make them."
