The new Managing Director of TV Africa, Mr. Ekow Blankson, has shared his opinion 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”
Well, many have alleged that Kumawood moviemakers do not use script when shooting movies, and they term that as unprofessional.
According to the critics, directors narrate scenes to the actors and allow them to improvise their own dialogue.
