NYSC To Filmmakers: Get Approval Before Using Corps Members’ Uniform In Movies by Gemid94(m): 3:12pm On Nov 19
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has urged filmmakers to always seek proper approval before using corps members’ uniform while shooting their movies.

Mr Christian Oru, NYSC Assistant Director of Legal Services, said this in Lagos during a meeting between National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) and creative industry stakeholders on enabling laws and strengthening of professional guilds and associations.

The NYSC official said that illegal use of its uniform in movies would no longer be tolerated by the management. Oru said that before using NYSC uniform in movies, the filmmaker must submit an application letter, stating exactly what the uniform would be used for and must acknowledge NYSC in the movie.

He said that the filmmakers would also have to submit their scripts to NYSC to enable them observe how NYSC would be represented in the movie. “For any film maker that wants any of his casts to wear the corps members’ uniform while shooting movies, we require that you write an application letter to NYSC to indicate your interest.

“We also demand that you submit your script to us for proper vetting to know how NYSC will be represented. “We know the script is your copyright and we will do everything to ensure confidentiality,” he said.

Kai !! This one pain and vex me. I wrote a script simply because one will act a two minute film with the clothes they will read my entire script.

Why am I seeing this as invading of privacy?

Hard to see the rationale behind this. Even the military doesn't demand this.

Normal thing.

But then, expect some people to still wail over this. Don't you see that hollywood never discusses the flaws of their government and agencies?! It's because they're strictly monitored but some folks want to drag this country into anarchy just because their 5% region is the anarchy capital of Nigeria.

Watch them wail.

This is important because someday, somehow, a very disturbing scene portraying physical harm or violence from the movie would be used to purvey fake news on social media

Nigeria isn’t designed for progress .

The approval process now will take months or it will require you to know someone.
