TV/Movies / Re: The Nollywood Industry Is Dying Slowly by lynx200(m): 10:49am On Jul 17
I have to warn you guys that this is going to be long. I have just read all the comments here and I see most people are just arguing and attacking blindly. I doubt if any of you have been involved in the production of an actual film or TV series. (outside acting) When trying to do something new you have to explore both the old and the new and also the nuances of your environment. When trying to do something you have to also consider the business angle because if you cannot make money from it how can you sustain it?

The Nigerian music industry has evolved because they took care of the business angle in their own distinct way and noted the bias of their society. Today musicians are living well even some of the lower cadre ones unlike the preceding generation and that's due to their business savvy.

Arguing for making better movies will be useless if you cannot create a compelling business case around it. People invest to make a profit and that was what created the Nollywood industry in the early 90s. There was a way to get to movies to the consumers then and there were good producers then who produced good stories. But today the Alaba model is outdated which is why there are so many part 1-6 home videos around with wack stories.

I cannot stand the recent Alaba movies myself. Yes, new Nollywood has better technical input but what the average person wants to see in a film is the STORY and most new Nollywood are dulling in this regard. Most new Nollywood movies hardly make money due to the lack of cinemas and the system they use. The cinemas were created for the so called middle class but Nollywood was built on the backs of the lower income class which the cinemas don't target. Somebody said that talking of piracy isn't relevant here but it cannot be divorced from this topic and one way that can be combated (without government help) is building affordable cinemas.

Before that you have to consider the business environment and that is why I admire AY and what he has done with 30 days in Atlanta. Most of you bashed it and I must confess its an ordinary story but its the highest grossing Nigerian cinema movie with a gross of N200 million. (The second highest was half of a yellow sun with N60 million) because the audience could relate with it. Ay to me is not one of the better comedians there but he is a damn good business man. He advertised the movie (something most Nigerian film makers fail to do or think is not important) which attracted people. October 1 and half of a yellow sun did the same which is why they made money as well. Ay blended elements of the new Nollywood (Good cinematography, sound, pictures) with elements of the Alaba nollywood (comedy, movie stars with a large following) and he made his money.

Its good to think out of the box and make new movies but you have to be careful and make sure its grounded in reality. Nigerians are conservative so you have to ease them into new things like the music people did. Hell, even Alaba marketers know their stuff is wack (I have interacted with them and I have seen a lot of porn movies over there but I also saw a zombie home video from a marketer) but they have to do something that gives them good return for their productions. If they see that cinema movies are making profit they wont hesitate to join and invest. These are rational businessmen and they will back a good film idea with a good business pathway.

New Nollywood cinemas require a lot more money than Alaba films (average budget $250000) both production and marketing which is why many of them are going safe making love stories. I go to cinemas regularly and until late last year wont have watched any Nigerian film I never participated in as a writer or actor. If there are more cinemas that are affordable (In India cinema tickets the standard of silverbird charge the equivalent of $2 per ticket on weekends unlike Nigeria that charge $6-$7) people will flock to them and with good publicity will watch the new Nigerian offerings as long as they are relevant to them. Over time many will upgrade their tastes.

Ihuomadinihu is right when she says we haven't exhausted our own stories. Do you know Hollywood is making a film about Fela? If there was a good way to make back that money investors will come in. (75% of the $8 million budget for "Half of a yellow sun was gotten from Nigerians) There are so many stories we can do about our past and present but there is also the need to project the future and the possibilities which is why I am equally in support of zombie and sci fi movies as bad influence pointed out but one that we can relate to. There is nothing wrong with urban based movies as I believe most Nigerians live in cities so there should be stories that reflect this diversity. Personally I don't see anything wrong with a Nigerian super hero movie. Thailand and Philippines shoot super hero movies and they are nothing like the DC and marvel comic characters from the US. We should also make films that can go international so we should balance local and international nuances.

Ihuomadinihu made some valid and constructive points but most of you were too busy trying to put her down . One guy had the guts to call her a LovePeddler! My brother you should be ashamed of yourself for saying that. She's made the best contributions and she never said she was in support of the Alaba films but pointed out the low points of the new Nollywood movies and you all jumped on her.

Politics / Is Apprenticeship A Better Form Of Education? by lynx200(m): 10:00am On Jul 15
I remember when I started my first job. There were so many things that I had no idea about like customer service, marketing, etiquette etc. which I had to be learn on the fly. Many graduates can relate to this experience which can be overwhelming for many. Some don’t even get over it.

There are other signs that our young ones are not getting a good and useful education especially on social media where you see the poor sentences and terrible thinking on display and you cannot reiterate the need for an overhaul of the education system.

Education is the primary means of social mobility for lower income people in any society but when it cannot help one earn a good living then something is wrong. What is taught in many schools today is sorely outdated and the rote learning employed as the means of instruction does not enhance critical thinking which is needed for any society to progress.

I like the shots you guys took and the picture quality as it told the story well. For a while i thought it was shot in the states or Europe though I feel the gun could have used a silencer rather than the loud bang as it was in an open street and you could have edited the gun shot better showing it was fired as the video shows that nothing happened or else you could have covered the view of the gun. The mood of the soundtrack was on track and the editing and the grading were professionally done. Overall it was a nice shot. Can't wait to see your other offerings.

Slimvincent:
Tnx Lynxx for all ur good works here. But do u hv info about asaba and awka auditions or, pls if u hv link to anyone who hv them help us to be havin updates. Finally, as a nollywood guru u are, wht are d difference b/w asaba movies and lagos movies more esp in terms of pay(include figures if possible), and whc do u advice for a beginner as an actor. Tnx

Thanks for the compliments Slim Vincent. First I am no Nollywood guru, just a regular guy who is helping out. Most times the pay in Lagos is much better in Asaba. The average pay per scene in Lagos is N2000 whereas Asaba pay is much lower (average N1000 per scene) as the producers moved there to cut costs. The only thing is most of the jobs in Asaba hardly sell and this makes it difficult for actors in it to gain recognition.
In the east the center is Enugu not Awka and the same thing as happens in Asaba goes on there. The difference is the Enugu boys have a clique thing going where you have to join the various guilds before you can work there. (which is illegal in my opinion and the laws of the land) If you don't they will refuse to give you jobs. Lagos too has its challenges but there are more jobs in Lagos than the other two places combined as most TV/web series and cinema movies are shot here. (The two others do only home videos)
I used to have a contact in Asaba but he left along with some others as a result of the poor working conditions which has resulted in very little audition information there. For my advice on how to proceed if you are in Asaba or Enugu and its environs you can start there by going to auditions. If you are in Asaba just head to Zenith hotel and you will get more information there. I am not that familiar with Enugu though.
To me the best place to start would be Lagos as that's the center of the Nigerian film making industry. In Lagos you don't have to register with the guild, just go to any of the auditions here and prove yourself. At times you will have to forgo pay to get some more credits. (Just don't make it too much) If possible go to an acting school and get trained. Make sure its one that also produces so that you can get a chance to show your stuff and build connections. Open your eyes to the other opportunities in the film industry like sound, lighting, set design, Make up, wardrobe, production management, scriptwriting etc. Many of those who work in these sectors started out as actors/actresses, found out they were good in these areas and concentrated there. (That was my route to the scriptwriting I do now) They might not be glamorous and publicized as acting but most times they have more job stability and make more money than most actors. Hope this helps you.



Actors and actresses are needed for a production. Actors must be aged 21-27 years and 35-40 years while the actresses must be aged 21-27 years. If interested sen your pictures (portrait) and full details to michael.onikoyideckon@gmail.com. For more details call Michael on 07030661293.
NB: Only shortlisted actors/actresses will be contacted for reading and final auditioning

Politics / Why Nigeria Is The Way It Is by lynx200(m): 11:00am On Jun 22
Hi people, I got this post in one of the whatsapp groups I belong and I thought you would all like to see it. It says a lot about why Nigerians behave the way they do and you will agree with me after reading it that it is so on point. If you believe this article is too long and u can't read it then I am sorry to say that you are part of the problem.

Institutional and normative culture shapes success of a country

What about Nigeria?

If we explore the Nigerian culture through the lens of the 6-D Model©, we can get a good overview of the deep drivers of its culture relative to other world cultures.

Power Distance
This dimension deals with the fact that all individuals in societies are not equal – it expresses the attitude of the culture towards these inequalities amongst us. Power Distance is defined as the extent to which the less powerful members of institutions and organizations within a country expect and accept that power is distributed unequally.

Nigeria scores high on this dimension (score of 80) which means that people accept a hierarchical order in which everybody has a place and which needs no further justification. Hierarchy in an organization is seen as reflecting inherent inequalities, centralization is popular, subordinates expect to be told what to do and the ideal boss is a benevolent autocrat

Individualism
The fundamental issue addressed by this dimension is the degree of interdependence a society maintains among its members. It has to do with whether people´s self-image is defined in terms of “I” or “We”. In Individualist societies people are supposed to look after themselves and their direct family only. In Collectivist societies people belong to ‘in groups’ that take care of them in exchange for loyalty.

Nigeria, with a score of 30 is considered a collectivistic society. This is manifest in a close long-term commitment to the member 'group', be that a family, extended family, or extended relationships. Loyalty in a collectivist culture is paramount, and over-rides most other societal rules and regulations. The society fosters strong relationships where everyone takes responsibility for fellow members of their group. In collectivist societies offense leads to shame and loss of face, employer/employee relationships are perceived in moral terms (like a family link), hiring and promotion decisions take account of the employee’s in-group, management is the management of groups.

Masculinity
A high score (Masculine) on this dimension indicates that the society will be driven by competition, achievement and success, with success being defined by the winner / best in field – a value system that starts in school and continues throughout organizational life.
A low score (Feminine) on the dimension means that the dominant values in society are caring for others and quality of life. A Feminine society is one where quality of life is the sign of success and standing out from the crowd is not admirable. The fundamental issue here is what motivates people, wanting to be the best (Masculine) or liking what you do (Feminine).

Nigeria scores 60 on this dimension and is thus a Masculine society. In Masculine countries people “live in order to work”, managers are expected to be decisive and assertive, the emphasis is on equity, competition and performance and conflicts are resolved by fighting them out.

Uncertainty Avoidance
The dimension Uncertainty Avoidance has to do with the way that a society deals with the fact that the future can never be known: should we try to control the future or just let it happen? This ambiguity brings with it anxiety and different cultures have learnt to deal with this anxiety in different ways. The extent to which the members of a culture feel threatened by ambiguous or unknown situations and have created beliefs and institutions that try to avoid these is reflected in the score on Uncertainty Avoidance.

Nigeria receives an intermediate score of 55 on this dimension, which does not show a clear preference.

Long Term Orientation
This dimension describes how every society has to maintain some links with its own past while dealing with the challenges of the present and future, and societies prioritize these two existential goals differently. Normative societies. which score low on this dimension, for example, prefer to maintain time-honored traditions and norms while viewing societal change with suspicion. Those with a culture which scores high, on the other hand, take a more pragmatic approach: they encourage thrift and efforts in modern education as a way to prepare for the future.
Nigeria scores very low (13) on this dimension, meaning that its culture is normative instead of pragmatic. People in such societies have a strong concern with establishing the absolute Truth; they are normative in their thinking. They exhibit great respect for traditions, a relatively small propensity to save for the future, and a focus on achieving quick results.
Indulgence
One challenge that confronts humanity, now and in the past, is the degree to which small children are socialized. Without socialization we do not become “human”. This dimension is defined as the extent to which people try to control their desires and impulses, based on the way they were raised. Relatively weak control is called “Indulgence” and relatively strong control is called “Restraint”. Cultures can, therefore, be described as Indulgent or Restrained.
With a very high score of 84, Nigerian culture is said to be one of Indulgence. People in societies classified by a high score in Indulgence generally exhibit a willingness to realise their impulses and desires with regard to enjoying life and having fun.

A movie production about to start shooting in Enugu this weekend needs Igbo speaking actors/actresses. You must be ready to travel to Enugu by this weekend for the shoot. If interested send your picture and details via whatsapp to 08170062690 asap.
Warning - If interested make sure you negotiate your terms of work before you travel to Enugu as many producers have disappointed actors/actresses who did not negotiate their working terms in the past. If the guy is vague about the pay and other working conditions when you call him forget the job as it isn't worth it. Please shine your eyes

Thanks For The Good Works lynx200 . My question is this : Must One Be An AGN Member Before He Or She Starts Going For These Auditions In Lagos?

Not at all. Though there are a few auditions that require that, most don't even bother about it. I will advice you to notch up some acting jobs first before you go pay for AGN membership because I havent seen what protection or benefits they have given their members apart from those holding offices
