The movie should be out first week of October in THEATRES.
I suggest Nigerians go out enmasse to support this movie. Thats the only way we can encourage more of this kind of movies.
Start saving your money now oo

Looks like my cg world is shrinking by the minute. the guy who actually did the shooting was in my office the other day 2 discuss a project. which means i was able to watch the full res version in all its glory. passed a funny anecdote about how ramsy nouah told him twas the only movie he's proud of and culd keep to show his kids cheesy.really nice stuff. by the way you guys watch out for our website coming soon so at least you could see what exactly we do. another nairalander is neck deep into the web design.

the government should setup studio equiped with the latest film lab equipments that has the capacity to match what the likes 20th Century Fox in each of the 6 geo political zones.

each of the states in the zones will share the following facilities.

Film School

Film Lab

Distribution Center

Film Village

ETC

Each of the Local Government should have at least one Cinema, even if it means building a 5 storey building with each floor being able to accomodate about 500 people at a time plus a mini shoping mall within the same plaza (I can give insight about how the people can invest and support the project)

With the possiblity of having more than 700 cinemas, so if you a cinema that can accomodate about 2500 (i.e. 500 by 5) then multiply by the over 700 in each local government, a good film given the indices can make up 5 billion in the first week alone, please someone correct me if am wrong. (I can also give advice on how this can be done in my own imagination)

This is far the best 9ja movie I have ever watch n believe me when I say this cos I'm not a fan of nollywood at all. Thumbs up, hopefully others will follow Kunle Afolayan's lead. He truelly has raised the bar high,
Re: The Figurine 'araromire' (a Film By Kunle Afolayan) by AdamuW: 9:20am On Nov 05, 2009
Finally saw the Figurine. I loved at because it's definitely a MASSIVE step in the right direction. I kept seeing flashes of what might be coming next as everyone involved (DOP, Actors, Directors, Editor,Post, VFX artists) in that project keep pushing on. I really hope the filmakers recouped or will recoup their investment through national and international sales.

As for the plot, I found it a bit confusing at times and found some parts didn't really link up as well as they should. But the great thing is that I'm not judging it according to average Nollywood standard. I'm judging it against world standard. The film was good enough to be judged as if it was a world class film. The team did brilliantly. Go and support it and watch it or get the DVD and make sure you PAY for it so they earn money!
