producing industries in the world 2nd only to india's bollywood now it's safe to produce around 3000 movies every get in a moment i'll talk to one of the industry's most successful female directors but 1st is the story of how produces a working to raise the quantity off nollywood films. are actually. welcome to the heart of the african film industry nigerian film company founder marian who knows the business like the back of her hand she has witnessed the industry's evolution thanks to affordable digital filming and editing technologies the movies quality has improved. the 10 years ago. nollywood was. different very different i saw them after. i was a child actor and trust me it was not like this today we should be better comrades
we were called or do separate from picture we do things just differently so in 10 years time. the industry will be really really different where we are going very far as the world due course work has attracted the attention of a foreign investor company was acquired by the french broadcaster cannot use. this is oppressed people. because he's like kind of clues saying you guys are doing something you guys are doing something valuable something we need this is the 1st time. the world is really. seen one who's gone like. this is like a success for export of nollywood content. for decades nollywood as a discipline their early known was seen as a factory turning out visual pulp fiction for the market stalls of d.v.d.
pirates cheap films ranging from body comedies to morality tales about witchcraft and infidelity today it's the 2nd largest market in the world. nollywood movies are still made on shoestring budgets and every production takes just 10 days and costs approximately $15000.00 u.s. dollars yet they're into it far beyond nigeria's borders. you can see about a lot of. actors are. working with people off of course a lot you think a lot of actors who want to come here and work with a thing like express our culture. you know and put the money what is growing fast much to the delight of all nigerian filmmakers. as promised my next guest is the director of the highest grossing domestic film in a nigerian history it's called the waiting can be added he joins me now from lagos
welcome to africa came in fact before we get to talking i just want to see it except off that film and we'll pick up from. your. friends i mean. i don't come down and i got out because i was the only person who has been kidnapped today is monday on. the use. of. our i came you saw what was it about this film that made a big hits that it was. oh our wedding party won i think it was just people just about how authentic it was it was a unapologetically nigerian and the shit was in our goods crazy yards ridges and if any if we didn't learn anything from the sea back then we got from viewers 'd connected with them in the respect that they felt they could see
themselves and a lot of the family members in a lot of our leading characters and human form of that. was it was the same thing and other people that couldn't connect to it in that way like that was some sort of a window into another world another culture so yeah we're very proud of that one yet secondly i mean let's talk about viewers right i mean we talk about nollywood and the filmmaking machine that it is today but truth be told if largely appeals to an african audience and i wondered if if and i was ok with that or if a is to is to change that. i mean i don't think there's anything on this earth that would want it's lost a chapel it makes you feel this sometime you know some sort of validation this is not some sort of you know so it's an ego trip but. i mean i was having a conversation with the so on earlier from your station and like you know will say my blood doesn't be here because lately i've been able to think that distribution
in-house i think one of the things that we need to to focus on is that we will light. them as of right now we haven't been usable states are distributed within africa so what ends up happening is even though filming of the meetings are really risky as it is right now in africa as you know more risk because you're not sure that more investment will be able to come back out and then this is why totally lie a lot on. brains or external i want to external investments and things like that so what have i been we need to fix this region in africa so they're working teacher who are ourselves that anything outside of that is just it's a politician and nice to have ok let's talk about investment ad because we're seeing growing interest in nollywood to the chin off european broadcasting is buying up all acquiring local production companies do you see that as a positive development. yes i mean
i think it goes into into the hands. anything that brings investment into the industry helps us creates more quality movies and things like that which in turn moves the industry for it that's a great thing i don't however feel that we need to be mindful that you keep a bit of ourselves or a lot of ourselves for ourselves there's a list something that we are displaying that the international market and international world is seeing and the ones are quite off and we need to be aware of that now let's switch of the stick the word let's switch towards silverlake called the we have to be careful that we're not so not going to we have to be careful there and also in the rights to mine our goals for absolutely nothing but we should be more about collaboration exchanging ideas excluding expertise and that should be encouraged or i can get it. that's all we have time for today hopefully we can get
here back on to talk about your new film that's just debuted on netflix that's cammy editor in nigeria. and. thank you. and that is it for now from deja vu news africa as always you can catch all stories on our website and facebook page for always interested to know what you think about the stories we cover here on news africa and perhaps stories that we should be covering because we've been talking all that much about it all you would leave you with some screen shots tales some of those movies for just by the industry itself makes time travel.
