Juliet EKOKO, hmmmm. That name reminds me of the Great Prof EKOKO in UNIBEN. A Mathematics Scholar! The young lady might be related to him!
Once again, Good job!

TV/Movies / Re: ELI5: How To Become A Scriptwriter by Briareos(m): 10:17pm On Jun 06, 2016

This helps a lot. Thanks, boss. But I have got a question about finding a mentor, though. Do you have any tips on how to find one considering a lot of them are sort of always busy?

I suppose you could send me a message.
TV/Movies / Re: ELI5: How To Become A Scriptwriter by Briareos(m): 11:08am On May 08, 2016
My answer will be based on a refined version of your question:

How To Be A Script writer in Nigeria?

0. Learn how to write a very good script. But more importantly, learn how to write a good Nigerian script. Trust me, most times, they are quite different.

1. Scratch any thought of being a full time scriptwriter from your mind. At least if you are just starting out.

2. Try to relocate to Lagos (if you are not in Lagos). But it is not absolutely necessary.

3. Study the industry very well and understand your market (your audience). Watching a lot of Nigerian films will help in this regard. You just have to consume those shit to succeed.

4. Find a mentor. Please find a mentor. I can't say this enough: find a mentor. Unlike acting whereby you see audition notices everywhere; in nollywood, writing jobs are kept on a "I know you and I recommend you" basis. Producers already have their go to writers. So you absolutely need a mentor.

5. Attend all the script workshop you can find. This is where you being in Lagos will help because most of the venues are always in Lagos. British Council Arts organizes several of these workshops. Search for Homevida online; they have short script writing competition. Pan Atlantic University just concluded a writing workshop. Chris Ehidero is gearing up for his second Story Story masterclass.

The purpose for attending all these workshop is very simple: TO NETWORK. Collect as much phone numbers and emails you can. Keep in touch with fellow workshoppers and start a conversation with them.


TV/Movies / Re: Mullholland Drive (2001) by Briareos(m): 1:24am On Mar 14, 2016
I saw this movie yester night and it was a crazy experience I must say. A psychological thriller with sprinkled comedy at its finest. I even had to check YouTube for some interpretations of the events that took place in the movie.

This is a movie you would keep thinking about and what it means to you after you've seen it. Highly recommended.

One of David Lynch subtle films.

What are u saying?

That it might be too deep for you. That you should try "Gossip Girls" and "Vampire Diaries" with their over-convoluted romantic stories.

from the directors of "The girl with the dragon tattoo", and the producers of "True Detective".

A young computer programmer who suffers from social anxiety disorder and forms connections through hacking. He's recruited by a mysterious anarchist, who calls himself Mr.Robot.


Is anyone following this series right now? If you haven't watched, check it out. it's so damn good!

I think this is on one of the best original series i have seen in a long time.

Let's discuss scenes, plot holes, and characters here.

It is a well crafted Series. It reminded me of House of Cards: Season one. I like the themes they explored. Loneliness. Privacy. Ethics etc. My favourite character remains, of course, Elliot. Christian Slater's portrayal of Mr. Robot doesn't go well with me. Slapping a pair of glasses on his face doesn't make him look like a great hacker.

Anyways, I stopped at episode six, so please avoid spoilers. Thank you.

TV/Movies / Re: My Synopsis by Briareos(m): 10:48am On Jun 09, 2015
Our story dates back to 18th century.
LOCATION: Nigeria in west africa.
The sound of the gong by the town crier
dragged the minds of every inhabitant of
umuomumu to state of bewilderment. Murmuring, anxiety and rumuours every
where. '' what is happening?'' what has
befallen on our kingdom? Even the
animals have took to their heels.
There is a king, wise men, able bodied
young men, wizards, sorccerers, chief priest and even the gods yet the kingdom
is boiling in turmoil. It later leads to the
opening of some secrets in the kingdom
even the gods are aware of them. There are
two kingdoms, but only one stands tall. There
are traitors, deception, deceit, greed and deaths so becarefull. Also there are rules
which have severe consequences if
disobyed so be warned. Don't b a fool
don't trust any one. Now following the
deaths of the mouth piece of the gods the
centre could not hold anymore. They say the gods are wise but are the gods really
wise? Watch as the story unfolds....
Sponsors are welcome. Thanks for your

Woah. This is interesting and exciting. It is a very unique idea that is story driven. It's not something we've seen before. Best Screenplay in Oscar loading.

What is good for the goose is good for the gander, and what goes around comes around, No one complained when you minions were lampooning Jonathan. But even without taking the aforesaid into consideration, truth be said; Buhari is a Brainless dullard.
