He mentioned that movie directors in Ghana should up their game in production and directing because their works are predictable and cited an example as when the results of a football march can be predicted, supporters of the teams do not go to the stadium, and that is a typical example of what is happening to our movie industry.
He indicated that acting is not all about passion, adding reading, research, skill and creativity makes you a good actor, but most actors experience these shortfalls in most of our African movies.
He was unhappy when the category for ”worse film ever produced in 2015”was from a Kumawood production and he asked why should Ghana be acknowledged as such.
He also stated that some Ghanaian stories lack depth and research to make the film authentic for viewers.
