Renowned Nigerian actor and movie producer, Christopher Oluwatosin, based in the United Kingdom, has recently added another feather to his cap by producing a thought-provoking movie titled “Indulgence”. The movie focuses on family dynamics and how parents should raise their children to avoid indulging their bad behavior.
Oluwatosin is an accomplished international actor, known for his exceptional talent, and he is very selective when it comes to the stories he produces. According to him, the storyline in “Indulgence” is one that every family and individual can learn from.
The production process for the movie involved various stages, including post-production, editing, and color correction. Oluwatosin emphasizes that it is crucial to find the right actors who can interpret the story he is producing effectively. Not all actors can play every role, and the success of the movie hinges on the actors’ ability to bring the story to life.
As a filmmaker, Oluwatosin reveals that the public doesn’t always see the challenges filmmakers face during the production process. For instance, he laments the absence of a film village in Nigeria, where filmmakers can shoot movies without being harassed by thugs demanding money. However, he is quick to point out that working with a good writer and creative director is vital in producing an excellent movie.
According to Oluwatosin, the quality of a movie depends on the budget and finances available. Still, he insists that quality should always be prioritized over quantity. He advises filmmakers to be innovative when constrained by finances and to focus on producing quality content.
The production of “Indulgence” involved scouting for the right location and getting the necessary equipment for the job. The actor also underscores the importance of working with a good production manager to break down the budget.
Oluwatosin is optimistic about the growth of the Nigerian film industry, particularly with the emergence of Nollywood. He believes that Nollywood has helped to break the stereotype of how the world views Nigeria and has created an opportunity to showcase Nigeria’s cultural diversity. The actor is confident that his latest movie, “Christopher King,” which is set to be released on cinema screens and on Netflix, will be a resounding success. He credits the story and creative director, Mr. Saheed Apanpa, for the movie’s potential success.
In conclusion, Oluwatosin calls on everyone to watch “Indulgence” and learn from its message about family values. The actor hopes that the Nigerian film industry will continue to grow and evolve, showcasing Nigeria’s immense talent and cultural diversity.
