The doyen of Ghanaian filmmaking and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of TV Africa Limited, Kwaw Ansah, has cautioned producers in the film industry against wanting to make movies for quick money.
He said the industry was struggling to produce quality African movies as a result of the notion of making quick money through movie making. “If we chase money, the damage will be so intense that we will not have money to repair it,” he said.
Mr. Ansah made this observation when he addressed an audience in Accra at the launch of the second annual National Television and Film Industry (NAFTI) lectures on the Ghanaian motion picture industry.
The lectures, themed ‘Promotion of Cross Cultural Understanding: A Celebration of Ghanaian-German Co-operation and Collaborations in Media’, is supported by the Goethe Institut.
