a discipline early known was seen as a factory turning out visual pulp fiction for the market stalls of d.v.d. pirates cheap films ranging from body comedies to morality tales about witchcraft and intra day to day it's the 2nd largest market in the world. nollywood movies are still made on shoestring budgets and every production takes just 10 days and costs approximately $15000.00 u.s. dollars yet their enjoyed far beyond nigeria's parters. you can see about a lot of. actors are. working with people off because a lot you think a lot of actors outside the country want to come here and work with both like express our culture. you know and put it in the movies nollywood is growing fast much to the delight of all nigerian filmmakers. as promised my next guest is the

ridges and if any if you can learn anything from the feedback that we got from viewers it connected with them in the respect that they felt they could see themselves and a lot of the family members in a lot of our leading characters and people form what i think of it was it was the same thing and other people that couldn't connect to it in that way like that was some sort of a window into another world another culture so yeah we're very proud of that one yet secondly i mean let's talk about viewers right i mean we talk about nollywood and the filmmaking machine but it is such a attributes whole it largely appeals to an african audience and i wondered if if not what's ok with that or if there is to change that. i mean i don't think there's anything on this earth that would want the it's not just a chapel it makes you feel this sometime you know some sort of validation this is not some sort of you know so it's an ego trip but. i mean have i was having
11:40 pm
a conversation with so i want only you know from your station and like you know is a major blow doesn't be here because lately i've been able to think that distribution in-house i think one of the things that we need to to focus on is that we would like. them as of right now we haven't been into constraints on distribution within africa so what ends up happening is even though a few of the meetings are really risky as it is right now in africa you know more or less because you're not sure that money investment will be able to come back out and then this is why you tend to lie a lot on external brains or external more to external investments and things like that so but i think we need to fix this regression in africa so that we can teach our who ourselves that anything outside that is just it's a politician and nice to have ok let's talk about investment because we're seeing
11:41 pm
a growing interest in nollywood to the tune off european broadcasting is buying up all acquiring local production companies do you see that as a positive development. yes i mean i think it goes into into the hands. anything that brings investment into the industry helps us creates more quality movies and things like that which in turn moves the industry for that's a great thing i don't however feel that we need to be mindful that we keep a bit of ourselves or a lot of ourselves for ourselves there's a list something that we are displaying that the international market and international world is seeing and the ones are quite off and we need to be aware of that now let's switch of the word let's switch towards silverlake calls and we have to be careful that we're not so not going to we have to be careful there and also in the rights to mine our goal for absolutely nothing but we should be more about

collaboration exchanging ideas excluding expertise and that should be encouraged or i can get it. that's what we have time for today hopefully we can get here back on to talk about your new film that's just debuted on netflix that can be additive in nigeria. thank you. and that is it for now from africa as always you can catch all our stories on our website and facebook paper always interested to know what you think about the stories we cover here on news africa and perhaps stories that we should be covering because we've been talking all that much about hollywood leave you with some screen shots tales some of those movies for jews to buy them straight so next time.
