Who we are

Welcome to 55Media Films! We are a new and innovative boutique film production collective, primarily focused on creating quality digital content for CINEMA, LIFESTYLE, BRANDING, MARKETING, and PROMOTIONS. Our motto is affordable  budget, expensive look. We pride ourselves in knowing extensive market research on equipment, know-how and technique which distinguishes us from our competitors.

We understand the intersectionality of artistic expression and business enterprise and we are most passionate about the overall satisfaction of each and every one of our clients. The process of film production includes Pre-production (Story boarding, writing, shot listing, creative direction and concept analysis), Production (Directing, cinematography, lighting, set design, costuming, and camera operation) and Post-production (Picture editing, sound design, music, color grading, and special effects). Each of which, we have been able to master. We are able to walk our clients from story boarding to final picture ensuring that they get the best possible quality.

Our film projects are mastered in 4K resolution, which is the current leading industrial standard. Our goal is to be a premium independent international film company with cinematic and commercial films across the globe. We have been recently featured in publications such as CNN, The Huffington Post, Essence, Bella Naija, Blavity, Shadow & Act, Afropunk, Konbini, ESPN and the NFL. The production company is owned by Uche Aguh who serves as the executive director, and Dennis Schmitz, a cinematographer.

We look forward to having you as part of the 55 Team!!

I STILL DO | Trailer

Video Thumbnail"I STILL DO" Official Teaser Trailer – Coming soon, 2016.

Written, directed and produced by Uche Aguh, I still do serves as his directorial debut. The dramatic short film stars Chinwe A Nwokolo and Aguh.

I still do, which is set in Lagos, Nigeria follows a young Nigerian politician named Emeka (Aguh) and his wife, Chioma (Nwokolo), in the midst of a political election. Chioma is in her mid thirties, a beautiful woman. Everything about her is pageant-like. But through the dark lens of her eyes, a much different story exists. Emeka, also in his mid thirties, a man full of charisma and charm, poised to be a governor. A miraculous feat, given his age and income. Their marriage in apparent crisis, the couple can no longer hold on to elegant pretense.

In this particular style and theme, I still do is inspired by European French, art-house cinema.

Aguh is joined behind the camera by cinematographer, Dennis Schmitz, who made use of small LED lights and modified natural lighting to achieve a picture that is both magnificient and terrifyingly beautiful. The film was shot in Düsseldorf, Germany. Sound Director – Alexander Moyerer, Make up and hair – Tiffany Sanz, Production designer – Marcus Schumann, Production Assistant – Davidson Lourenco.
