In the heart of Ghana’s vibrant creative scene, a young and talented videographer and filmmaker is making waves with his exceptional storytelling and visually captivating work. Meet Mollex Films, the emerging face of Ghana’s videography and filmmaking industry, whose passion for visual storytelling is leaving an indelible mark on audiences both locally and internationally.
Hailing from the Eastern region of Ghana, Mollex Films’ journey into the world of videography was inspired by his big brother, who is a movie producer, writer, and director. ”He put me on his production sets as a runner. I later engaged myself in producing music for a couple of artists and then diverted into working on music videos as a director and editor.”
Fascinated by the power of visuals to convey emotions, ideas, and narratives, he started experimenting with cameras and editing software, honing his skills and understanding of the art form. What began as a hobby soon evolved into a deep-rooted passion and a lifelong pursuit.
“I was fortunate to have my senior brother teach me video editing, which gave us extra leverage to work on multiple productions such as movies, television series, music videos, documentaries, and commercials. One skill I appreciate knowing is video editing. This aids in directing videos and having a fair idea of how to piece the raw footage together in post-production,” he revealed.
Mollex Films is an enthusiastic geographer with a first degree in Geography and Psychology from the University of Ghana. He had his basic and secondary education at St. Anthony’s School and St. Thomas Aquinas Boys Secondary School, respectively.
His commitment to his craft led him to study Film and Media Production online, where he further developed his technical knowledge and storytelling abilities. Armed with the right skills and an insatiable thirst for creative exploration, he set out to make his mark in the ever-evolving world of videography.
What sets Mollex Films apart is its unique approach to visual storytelling. With an innate ability to capture the essence of his subjects and bring out their authenticity, his work goes beyond mere visuals and delves into the heart of the narrative. Whether it’s a music video, short film, or documentary, Appiah’s work evokes emotion and connects with audiences on a profound level.
Mollex Films’s portfolio boasts an impressive array of projects, collaborating with renowned musicians, artists, and creatives across Ghana. His music videos have become synonymous with artistic excellence, blending mesmerizing visuals with compelling narratives that complement the music perfectly. From vibrant cityscapes to the serene beauty of Ghana’s countryside, Appiah’s camera lens brings each frame to life with a touch of magic.
Beyond music videos, Mollex’s storytelling prowess shines through his short films and documentaries. Often delving into social issues and cultural nuances, his work reflects a deep sense of responsibility to shed light on stories that deserve to be told. By amplifying these voices, Appiah showcases the resilience and diversity of Ghana’s people, culture, and heritage.

He has received accolades from local film festivals and has been featured in various media outlets, earning him the respect of his peers and industry veterans.

He has worked on a couple of videos for artistes like Phrame, Kofi Sei, Edoh Yat, Fimfim and Nana Nie in his early stages of music video directing journey. “Working on music video has been my favorite aspect of video production. I enjoy being able to translate sound into visuals.
Over the years, I have worked on countless music videos, documentaries, short and long films, commercials, and event coverage. “I play multiple roles as a videographer for my production company. Apart from directing the entire video, I also work as a set designer, cinematographer, director of photography, editor, and sometimes as the gaffer.”
Based on his experience and the company’s credibility over the years, he has worked with musicians like Fimfim, Kofi Sei, Bogo Blay, Nana Nie, Phrame, Maa Adwoa, Brynna, Rama Blak, Shiorkor, Edoh Yat, Tulenkey, Eli Yong, Mac Nuru, Sunny J, Sarpei, Adina, Starter, and others.
