Creative designer tasks film makers on appropriate custome


ABUJA – The Chairman, Creative Designers Guild of Nigeria (CDGN), South-South and South-East chapters, Mr Sele Sele, has urged film makers nationwide to always choose appropriate costumes for their movies to enhance its quality.
Sele told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja that selecting the appropriate costumes would go a long way in the marketing of the movies.
He regretted the challenges encountered by creative designers in accessing basic government facilities in their profession.
“For instance, if you want to do an action movie, you require guns and uniforms but when you go to the police station, nobody is ready to assist you.
“If you want to shoot a movie at an airport, getting an airport is difficult. These are the kinds of challenges we encounter.
“That is why you don’t see most movies with such story lines; the major challenge is that we don’t have film shops.
“You will need a spirit gum in Nigeria but you won’t find it. Abroad, film shops differ and they can be anything—costume shops, makeup shops, as well as camera and lighting shops.
“Sometimes, you will want to do a movie and you might need a skeleton but you might not find one because film shops are not available.
“Sometimes the money to enable you to arrange for such is not forthcoming,’’ Sele told NAN.
Sele, who is also a movie producer, said it was unfortunate that the average Nigerian audience paid more attention to the artists rather than the content of their movies.
He explained that the development made producers of movies to engage popular actors that would give them return for their investment.
Sele also said that the Nigerian film industry do better if the audience could appreciate good movies without putting too much emphasis on the actors involved.
He also urged the Federal Government to do more in the area of provision of facilities needed by movie producers to package quality movies.
Sele said that doing so would enable producers create more wealth expose Nigerian movies to the international market. (NAN)
