DILLON M. BANDA

ABOUT

Born Magare Banda, I professionally go by the name Dillon M. Banda. I direct and produce films, commercials and visual content. From 2014 to 2017 I served as the founder and lead director of Lekker, the filmmaking collective headquartered in Hong Kong, and I am also currently the co-founder of SoundChips, the site that reviews, shares and showcases new music from artists around the world.

With an educational background in music and digital art, I discovered film and the moving image through my exploration of the latter. Suffice it to say, I haven’t looked back since. My work is typified by a keen attention to cinematography and aesthetics, while conceptually I often blur the line between narrative and documentary, albeit with a consistently cinematic touch.

I studied music technology with digital arts at the University of Hull in Northern England, graduating with a B.A.(Hons).
