Nollywood - The Nigeria Movie Industry – The Nigeria Hollywood

Nollywood is a term used for the Nigeria movie industry as a whole. Nollywood is Nigeria's equivalent of Hollywood. Unfortunately, it is not as profitable as Hollywood.

The Nigeria movie industry is faced with a number of challenges. The foremost amongst them being piracy.

Pirates have a huge market in Nigeria. They search for popular films or movies - both foreign and local - and they duplicate in large quantities. Then they sell at rock bottom prices.

The implication of this is that the artist who has copyrights to his work, is left broke.

Naturally, people prefer to buy the cheap discs, which are duplicates of the original because . . . well, it's cheap. The movie producer then incurs losses . . . losses that can also make him broke.

Bottom line.

The movie industry becomes unprofitable to investors.

Final result?

Actors and actresses are offered peanuts to appear in movies. Of course, the seasoned and popular actors and actresses decline such low pay outs. But the newbies gladly accept them.

Consequently, the movie industry has become awash with half-baked unseasoned actors and actresses.

So, in reality, pirates destroy the movies industry . . . an industry that is a huge foreign income earner for many advanced economies of the world. Piracy results in production of poor movies by Nollywood movies producers. They tend to want to shoot a movie in a span of one month to cut production costs since pirates have significant reduced their profit margins. That is why Nigeria movies are churned out by the hundreds month after month.

To be fair to producers, many still do a great job even with the tight schedule and the challenges posed by piracy and the fledgling movie industry.

How can you help?

Support the Nigeria Films and Video Census board campaign against piracy. Buy original CDs from anti-piracy movie outlets.

Think of your favorite Nigeria movie stars . . . Ramson Noah, Omotola Jolade, Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Ini Edo, Jim Ike, Pete Odochie, Stephanie Okereeke, Bob Manuel, name it . . . your movie purchase decision could make them poorer or thousands or even millions of Nigeria richer.

It's your choice.
