I recently spoke to a fast-rising YouTuber and actress named Eleyne Radol about content creation and making money from her craft.
Read what she had to say below.
Hi, what’s your name and what do you do?
My name is Eleyne Radol. I’m a film maker, I also act and vlog.
Have you always loved acting. How did you get into it?
Acting has always been a calling I could say that. I started acting back in primary and my Major highlight was the controversial play Shackles Of Doom by Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala.
About vlogging. How are you finding the digital content creation space in Kenya? Do you think we are at a point where someone can make a living off it.
Yes you can, it needs a lot of patience and commitment but it pays off.
What are your future plans as far as acting and vlogging go, where do you want to see yourself in the next 5-10 years?
I am striving to be a household name in the industry and bringing change to the acting world and Riverwood at large. With vlogging, I will definitely have 100K+ subscribers as well as doing adverts for big brands.
Are you making any money so far from vlogging through working with brands? Is acting a job that someone in Kenya can live on?
Not yet but I’m hopeful because my channel is growing at high rate. For so long acting and film making have been treated as side-hustles and not as serious career, the narrative is slowly but surely changing with everyone embracing it now as a profession.
What are you currently doing? Are you in university? If so, what course are you undertaking?
I completed my degree in Film production and Animation at Multimedia University. I’m awaiting graduation.
Finally, how old are you? Are you seeing anyone and describe your ideal man.
Haha, I’m old enough not to share my age. I’m currently single.
My ideal man is one whose level of confidence is exemplary, emotional intelligent person and most definitely one who will support my career
