Nollywood Needs Consultation From Hollywood To Get To Next Level – Yoruba Demons Star Ayo Makun
Top Nollywood filmmaker Ayo Makun has revealed the strategy the Nollywood movie industry can use for growth.
Here is what the entertainer said in a recent chat with Pulse TV.
How I Source Funds For My Movies
“I play with my own funds and once or twice, try to get one or two investors involved, I mean not within the corporate circle but individuals who also believe in the business and we just rock and roll. It could be better if we have the support of either the government or corporate sector, it’s just the question of belief and understanding to close up the gaps.”
How Hollywood Consultants Can Help Nollywood Grow
“Government needs to be involved, it’s one direction that has been downplayed, maybe because before now, some people moved that motion and forwarded it to the government but did that from a selfish point of view like let me go there, grab what I can and move. People in government at that time stopped taking us seriously and when they see you as a mediocre, it becomes a child’s play.
“Government should be more open to even more focused people who are now ready to move this business of movie making to another level and give them the adequate support, bring in support, in form of consultants, I mean we are not too big enough not to have consultants, maybe from Hollywood. Let them come and give or show us a template of how it is done and the government will just empower the people who have the capacity to deliver.”
