Moviemaker and actor, Kunle Afolayan has opened up on why he doesn’t make movies for Nigerian actors and producers.
The multi-award winning film producer disclosed that though he is open to working with anybody and everybody, he wasn’t ready to compromise his standards just to
make a movie.
‘The first thing you need to understand is that I don’t work the way most people work. It takes me two years to make a film, in fact, once I’m done shooting a movie, I start plans towards the shooting of the next movie.”
Speaking further, the Golden Effects boss added: “I have had offers and I have even had senior partners and colleagues wanting to work but directing isn’t a child’s play. When we discuss, and you tell them this is the standard, they sometimes don’t call back or I just stand my ground that since I can’t compromise, I might as well back out.”
The ‘Figurine’ actor, however declared that he’ll be working with some bigwigs in the industry soon.
“I’m open to it but I can’t compromise several things and that is why I concentrate on my productions but will be doing things with some senior partners in the industry and we are working together on the bill of a cable channel. You will soon see a collaboration of efforts from me and other topshots in the industry,” he said
Kunle Afolayan’s productions are all of quality standard, from ‘Figurine’ to ‘October 1’. He is also set to premiere his new movie in the coming month.
