MHFRAME Production seeks support for poor Nigerians through Hulks project
Determined to draw attention to the plights of poor Nigerians, MHFRAME Production, a Multimedia company has through its Hulks project created content that not only resonate with viewers but also impact on society.
The Hulks project is a documentary series that brings true life stories of everyday Nigerians, letting viewers into the lives of Africa’s most populous nation, their tears, faith and dreams.
Marthins Harrison, creative director, MHFRAME Production, said the Hulks project was created to help society reflect, and appreciate how much of life is happening around the country.
“With the issue of unemployment being a constant plague to Nigeria and many families forced to live in extreme poverty, the project looks beyond the hustle of informal sector, to ensure the untold unique stories of lost hope, struggle and survival are told,” he said.
Harrison, who has expertise in storytelling, broadcasting, corporate communication, event management and visual perception management, said his ultimate goal was to use his experience to create content that not only resonate with viewers but also impact on society.
Harrison, an alumnus of Pan Atlantic University school of Media and Communication, believes that beyond entertainment, media remains an incredible tool for social change.
According to him, in 2014, the first episode of the Hulks project was released to help amplify the struggles of the poor within the society and get support from the public. https://youtu.be/HSQxL1ApZ2I
Through the series, he noted, over half a million was raised directly for one Gabriel Esanhon, a 71-year old truck pusher from Edo State to start a business. https://youtu.be/5ZQjcPcZGoo
This intervention was carried out after spotlighting the plight of Esanhon who for 13 years after being laid off work, was struggling to fend for himself and his family by pushing trucks on the streets of Lagos.
Another beneficiary of the project, Blessing Eze, a 35 years old mother of three children from Ebonyi who lives in the slums of Festac was supported as Eze and her kids were on the path to having a better life.
Harrison further said that this is a legacy project and he hopes corporate Nigeria can adopt project like this that will impact positively on their host communities.
