Nollywood strives to be Nigerian replica of American
Hollywood, the quality of the videos produced
relative to Hollywood videos, are abject apology.
But there is room for improvement
It is true that
Nigerians, both at home and abroad hunger more and
more for Nigerian made movies, because of the
peculiarity of the stories and richness of our
tradition, but quite often the quality of the
pictures are nothing to write home about. I am often
fascinated by the stories behind the movies, but I
am equally often disappointed by the dramatization
of the stories. These Nigerian movies were initially
made for local consumption, but the increasing
demand for such movies by people resident at home
and in foreign countries, led to increased, but
careless productions of low quality movies.
I believe that there are several reasons for the
poor quality, and a few of them are :
The quest for rapid wealth
Inadequate grooming of the actors and
Lack of Proper Appraisal of the Stories
and the logistics of properly executing them.

It is a well known
fact that, in any Get-Rich-Quick scheme, the quality
of the product or service is often compromised, and
this is also true with movie production. In an
effort to generate massive revenue, quickly, we
often loose sight of the aim of movie production. We
need to focus on producing movies that narrate
coherent stories, captivate the audience and should
be universally acceptable.
We need to focus
more on quality rather than quantity
