The new Managing Director of TV Africa, Mr. Ekow Blankson, has shared his opinions on the kind of style the movie industry in Kumasi have adopted.
Once an actor and known for his great acting experience, Mr. Blankson said movies by film makers from Kumasi are not different from the old concert party.
The actor explained that Kumasi movie sector do not prepare script to guide actors on set. Mr. Blankson noted they have adapted the concert party style and transformed it into film.
“I think the Kumasi movie industry is a different form of film making, it’s actually concert party where you don’t prepare a script and follow. They are given pointers and they have to create out of it and that is the concert party style and they have enhanced it into film,” Blankson told SVTV Ghana.
Speaking on recent acting skills of young film makers, he said they are a bunch of jokers. He added that there is no reality on the screens when it comes to acting these days.
“For me personally, I think that our new crop of actors are just jokers. Unfortunately, they aren’t as exciting and real as people have done in the past. Sometimes it gets a bit worrying watching them perform.
“Acting isn’t a substitute at all… In America, they have realized a lot of revenue from Tourism especially with film. Film has given them a lot of foreign exchange and also same in India, Canada, Australia and even in Africa, Nigerians are doing so well in movies.
As many film makers complain that there’s no work to do because the industry is challenged, Nigerians come into Ghana and they tap the talents and resources we have here and make lots of money,” He continued.
Mr. Ekow Blankson is the current Managing Editor of TV Africa. Ekow also worked with Media General Ghana Limited, Ghana as the Director of Brands & Corporate Communication.
