How NYSC helped my Filmmaking Career!
It is only grace that has kept me going. I wouldn’t denial the fact that it was tough returning to the film set immediately after passing out from service. But successful filming will be attributed to the collective effort of the highly skilled Crew and cast that worked in this production.
My deepest appreciation goes to the Executive producer/ Co- producer, Mr. Chijiuka Ogbonnaya; for believing in my dream. Mr. Stanley Omeze (St. Ij) for sincerely directing this film with me, Mr. Henry Iroanya (Rushwoq), for the magic you performed with the camera, Seaflow for the creativity deployed to make every scene look it…. And to all the other crew members; I say thank you.
Chief Chiwetalu Agu, Richard Brutus, Priscilla Austine, Osinachi Dike (Apama), Ken Chukwu, Tony Anyasodo, Nnamdi Kanaga, Donald Donatus and every other person that featured in the film as a cast; Thank you so much.
I would rather foretell that my NYSC service year was a successful one for it bore unseen babies I never got pregnant of. However, the movie whose working title “Detective Mind” was one of those babies.
I wouldn’t say it was easy because no Soldier’s story had ever fallen easy from the narrator’s lips but pathetic enough to create a mumbled face. I therefore describe mine as pathetic as hell but beautiful as heaven’s gate.
My assurance to all the fans of Nollywood Cinema is…. You guys will definitely love this one!
Finally I want to use this medium to wish my colleague St Ij, a joyous birthday!
