Ten sound editors/mixers from Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Niger and Ghana met in Ouagadougou from 17 to 28 September 2012 to work on improving the soundtracks of the TV series they produce. The workshop was led by Mathieu Cochin, sound engineer and mixer (France Télévisions, Arte, BBC, Channel 4, Discovery etc.) and Alain Kempinaire, sound engineer and audio technician, based in Ouaga (K7 Ouaga).

The ISIS (Institut Supérieur de l’Image et du Son) in Ouagadougou provided the mixing equipment used during the training course. Trainees worked mainly on non-mixed episodes of the Burkina series Super Flics produced by Aminata Diallo, Managing Director of Jovial Productions, a member of Producteurs Associés, the CFI partner for this project.

This programme is CFI's response to a call for proposals from ACP Cultures+, coordinated by the Secretariat of the ACP states and funded by the European Union. This project aims to upgrade the quality of African entertainment in order to reach the international standards required for the circulation of these programmes. €500,000 have been allocated, of which €350,000 from the ACP/EU.
