PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY COMMENCES FOR STANLEE OHIKHUARE'S "A TUNE AWAY"
A Social Cause film aimed at promoting awareness about, and foster inclusiveness for people living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Anita Da-Silva (beautiful 24-year-old young lady), returns home after studying abroad, and volunteers to help with grooming and caring for Kids at a Therapeutic Boarding school for kids living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
She soon discovers the chilling tale behind the establishment of the School and realizes that Omon Oliha, (24-year-old) son of the school’s founder - Alex Oliha, also lives with ASD, and stays at the Therapeutic Boarding School as well.
Together with two other volunteers, (Theodora and Nosa) Anita assists in reviving the Institution which was at the brink of being shut down. But most of all, she helps Omon through his struggle with sensory integration difficulties by offering him a firm support in his struggle against social isolation. She also plays a very crucial role in helping Omon to harness his splinter abilities.
Experiencing such intimate care and affection for the first time in a long while, Omon falls in love.
A TUNE AWAY was first conceived in 2014, but was revisited after several tweaks and numerous refinements to the screenplay. When pre-production commenced again in 2018, several actors were cast for the role of Omon, but I decided later on in 2019, that I wanted to work with someone who was really autistic rather than a professional actor. A casting call was put out, and I found Oreofe. The rest is history.
