Socrate Safo, director of Creative Arts at Ghana’s National Commission on Culture, has criticized the country’s film industry, claiming that its members have all the resources they need to create high-quality films.
Socrate Safo, in an interview broadcast on E-TV and monitored by Ghbase.com, expressed optimism about the future of Ghana’s film industry despite its present difficulties.
“It looks like there is no hope, but I can tell you, everything that we need to produce good content in Ghana we have them. Location, money, whatever, just press the right knobs”, he told the host
He further noted that shooting a good movie does not demand a huge budget those complaining are the ones in the industry who do not have much knowledge about what they do.
“If I want to shoot a movie today, I will not go for a loan. I am a filmmaker and I know how to produce it. If you are not part of the system, you will sit somewhere and cry. It doesn’t take money to shoot quality”, he stressed.
