Recently, the Ghana movie industry has faced a lot of criticisms and serious concerned backlashes but there seem to be no one spearheading to debunk and restore hope back into the multimillion Industry paved by zealous and purpose driven individuals who made sure it attained the kind of pedestal it is today.
Ghana movie industry as said by many industry expects is withering and vanishing gradually as foreign contents enjoy standing ovation in most Ghanaian communities and homes. In fact there is nothing like “Ghana movie industry” if my current instincts may serve right, but rather we have sub established organizations such as FAIPAC, Ghana Actors guild, Kumawood, Film producers Associations and a host of others which serve under no status quo and under no code of conduct.
These organizations operate within their own jurisdictions to sustain and preserve their members interest whenever it deems necessary. These institutions or organizations are doing quite well but are not up to expectations and do not in any way match up to international standards and quality due to outflow of Inadequate capital and the influx of foreign and fake monotonous contents.
GREEDINESS AND ARROGANCE
The movie industry is made up of earthquakes and volcanoes seeking to vibrate and erupt regardless of the circumstances that may arrive, all in the name of money and fame. Nowadays actors and actresses are now producers of their own movies and it’s not intriguing they at times act very naïve and come out with very bad, empty and unreasonable contents to deceive the public just to make some cash and show off. Movie production is not an easy task and must follow the right procedures and given the needed attention to make it stay for long and be able to carry the kind of quality it needs and to meet international standards.
Producers and Directors, Actors and Actresses, Cinematographers and all movie role players in the industry as it stands now are making very tremendous regress in their field of operation in sustaining and making the movie industry 1 percent close to the Hollywood and 50 percent close to the Nollywood,(Nigeria movie industry) and this indicates clearly how poorly they can learn amidst all the pride and boastfulness. Things of this kind you don’t have to be told you rather have to read between the lines to simply know that the “GHANA MOVIE INDUSTRY” needs a savior like “NANA APPIAH MENSAH”C.E.O of Zylofon Media to revive and place it on a different pedestal.
