An incredible feat has been achieved by a group of teenagers in Africa who have created the world's first hour-long superhero movie recorded entirely on a phone and edited using CapCut. Known as the African Cinematic Universe, this talented group spent two months meticulously editing their film, overcoming numerous challenges along the way.

The filmmaking process spanned seven days, utilizing a borrowed iPhone X for all recording. Despite the limited resources, the team managed to perform all the editing, including visual effects and sound effects, on a Samsung 7S Edge and an Amazon Fire tablet. Remarkably, they accomplished this during Ramadan, meaning they worked without food or water during daylight hours.

One of the most daunting challenges they faced was the fear of their phone crashing during the export process, potentially losing all their hard work. Ingeniously, they circumvented this by exporting the movie in 13 to 16-minute segments. A stroke of luck came when someone who saw the trailer donated a PC, allowing them to compile and export the entire hour-long film.

This dedication culminated in a premiere for the movie's release, showcasing their hard work and creativity. If given access to professional editing equipment, there's no telling what heights these young filmmakers could reach. Their story and film deserve far more recognition.

Experience the inspiring journey of the African Cinematic Universe and witness their groundbreaking superhero movie. Watch their incredible story unfold and support these talented teenagers by viewing their film.
