‘Technical Quality in Movie Production has Improved’

A film-maker, Desmond Ovbiagele, on Tuesday said that there had been significant improvement in contemporary technical quality of movie productions in Nollywood, compared to the last few years.

Ovbiagele told the News agency of Nigeria in Lagos that the cinematography, sound quality, special effects have to some extent improved.

He, however, stressed that there was still the need to attain cinema-grade standards in films by producers.

“We cannot have one type of movie in the industry. We must have different types of productions. We need to diversify.

“Other elements such as storytelling, production designs and acting represent additional opportunities for improvement. The only problem confronting us is the quality of our writing. Our scripts need to be tighter and meet the international standards.

“As for our actors and actresses, they should know that no one is above learning new things,” he said.
