Poor Story Line Won’t Earn Nollywood Prestigeous Awards – Udoka Oyeka

Udoka noted that the industry overlook a lot of things, such as cinematography, lighting, sound and production values, adding that the industry needs well trained actors to achieve quality production.

“There are many elements in film-making and we don’t pay enough attention to them. I feel that if you are going to make a film, it should be done properly.”

He further pointed out that another challenge facing the make-belief world is poor story line which makes some productions terrible after the whole time spent.

“I have a problem with the way the story-lines turn out in many of the films produced in our movie industry. Sometimes it is hard to talk about these things because some of these people are your friends. But the reality is that we don’t pay much attention how we want to tell the stories. We don’t pay attention to the plots and other detail.”

The young filmmaker, however, thinks that Nigerian filmmakers need to work harder to attract the attention they deserve from foreign investors.
