Mr Ernesta and Bioscopia have registered a local company called Sey Bioscopia which will be responsible for the production of the Creole films and the other projects.

Suraj Kumar Jaiswal, a producer and director, and Shailender Sodhi, a scriptwriter, songwriter, content writer and researcher from Bollywood, are in Seychelles to finalise discussions on the Creole film production project.

Mr Ernesta said production is set to start early in 2013 and they are anticipating to release the first Creole movie during next year’s Creole Festival.

He added that the premiere of this film will be held in Seychelles and the team is also targeting Creole-speaking countries.

Sey Bioscopia aims to bring this project at international level and wants to involve local people.

“We want to develop local talents and we are urging them to join us on this venture,” he added.
