Please tell us challenges faced in doing your latest star studded movie
The challenges I face were how to manage a very big cast and crew and still stay on schedule and not exceed my budget
What must the world expect from it
The world should expect a film that has the subliminal symbolisms required in storytelling. A story that deals with complex issues of youth gun crime and gang culture often not fully addressed by the authorities We tell the story without any glamourization of crime. From start to finish the audience will be hooked by the twists and the deep plots until the climax of the story
We have Monalisa Chinda. Steve McTigue and Paul Van Beaumont amongst others
What are the plans for Nigeria and African premiere ?
We are looking to Premiere in Lagos and Abuja by November and Theatrical by end of the year We will confirm the date closer to the time because of talks with our South Africa distributors
What do you intend to achieve as ultimate aim in this movie?
Global distribution and various film events in Universities across the world starting in the UK More awards and recognition in the global film industry
Can you give us the idea of budget spent on it ?
Estimated budget was just above 500 Thousand and below 1 Million Pounds
