Is it Directorial? Is it Technical? Is it the Script? Is it the Cast? Why are most of our Ghanaian movies just not good?

Ghanaian movies

To start off the discussion, I think we have to start making some futuristic movies and take on some more complex scripts. Movies with drama and suspense at every turn is not what I am talking about.

the destiny of a nation at any given time depends on the opinions and contributions of its young men and women.

GHANAIAN MOVIES...THE DOWNSIDES

A good film is the one that has a good storyline, a cracking director, right equipment and the perfect crew and actors for it. Miss out any of these steps in the right proportion and what you get is a half baked project. Funding dictates the level of equipment for instance and props, location and costume, but get the director and the script wrong plus some dozey actors and the film is doomed before it has even started.

Big budget films have been known to flop whiles some low budget films have caught the limelight in the most amazing way so they must have done something right by way of storyline and director and some dedicated and brilliant actors. Which is why i dont always believe that it has to be expensive to be good. This is where we are not getting it right in Ghana. Storylines are too low key and do not push boundaries enough and one look at the actors and actresses just shows you the level and acumen of the director who did the casting and is behind the scenes urging them on.
Any Tom, Dick and Harry or Sally can jump on the band wagon of the film directorship given that they have the money to initiate it, but the sweetness of the project comes out for those who are well versed in the act of knowing the ins and outs of film making, selecting the right crew, perfect storyline, and making what is available to them go further. If these things are not in place, forget it... its going to be a flop!

THE CRINGE FACTOR! WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT GOD MADE THREE WORLDS AND THAT I COME FROM THE THIRD WORLD. THE ISSUE OF RACE IS GEOGRAPHICAL AND NOT A STATUS SYMBOL AND NEITHER IS MY SKIN BLACK NOR YOURS WHITE.
