POPULAR Ghanaian actor, Prince David Osei says Ghanaian movie industry deserves lots of credit for evolving over the years in terms of content and quality production.
He pointed out that it will be wrong for anyone to insinuate the movie industry was dead considering the progress he has seen since being part of the industry in the past 17 years.
In a presentation as a panel member at the third edition of the Graphic Showbiz forum under the theme Future of Ghana movie Industry: Bright or Bleak?” held on Tuesday, July 25, the Dead actor said “With regards to Ghana movie industry, I can say that tradition is giving way to transition because things have evolved, we are growing in quality with regards to production.
“I have been in the movie industry for the past 17 years and I’ve seen lot of growth when I look back to the movies I was part of and starred in, I can say we’ve really come far,” he said.
The forum saw a number of industry players in the film sector hold relevant conversations on the state of Ghana’s movie industry and the way forward.
Other panelists for the forum were George Bosompim, a lecturer at the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI) and Public Relations Officer of The Ghana Academy of Film and Television Arts (GAFTA), Peter Sedufia, a film director and CEO of Oldfilm Productions, Ivan Quashigah, film producer and CEO of Farm House Productions, and Afua Kissi-Nyame, Head of Marketing, MultiChoice Ghana.
Last Tuesday’s forum is the third in the series by Graphic Showbiz Forum after the maiden event held in 2020, themed: Moving from Promises to Action, A Discussion Of Party Manifestos On the Creative Industry.
The second edition was held on the theme, Maximising the benefits of Digitisation in the Covid-19 Era.
