Change is Constant
This rings so true for us here at Nolly Silver Screen. We have had new additions to the team, added more pages to the magazine and welcomed new advertising partners. For our sixth edition, we decided to take our time and come up with a new and improved magazine – from the design to the content. It has been a lot of hard work, constant back and forth and a lot of long hours. Anyone who tells you magazine publishing is glamorous is only telling you half of the story. While the finished product which you are reading today looks like a piece of cake (it does right?), putting it together is no sweet dessert.
So, here is a big shout out to everybody who has stood by us with words of encouragement and advice and has pushed us to come up with nothing but the best. This is for you!
This edition’s theme is on the business of cinema. Wilfred Okiche gets approaches the topic by looking at the life cycle of a Nollywood movie (p. 11). What is the most expensive Nollywood movie? Take a wild guess and find out what others think in our Vox Pop section (p. 9). Our new cartoon strip – Nolly Toons is about the Economics of a Naija Date (p. 10).
Things get smoking hot on the red carpet of Mbong Amata’s DVD launch (p. 24 ) and Ivie Okujaiye’s movie premiere (p. 25). It is great to see these women make their debut as producers.
Nolly Silver Screen was proud to partner with the Nollywood Studies Centre of the Pan Atlantic University during their annual international conference. Check out pictures from the event (p. 20).
You probably know her as Bimpe in Tinsel, our TV sweetheart Linda Ejiofor dishes on her acting journey, her ideal man and Nollywood (p. 14).
Get the scoop on what Nollywood movies will be premiering this month and those that will be released on DVD (p. 34).
For the filmmakers, there are a number of opportunities to submit your works for awards and festivals. Fingers crossed, we just might get one of our movies in next year’s Oscars. Get all the details and see if your film is eligible (p. 37).
I am always proud to see young talents on display – they are the future of Nollywood. This was one of the reasons we started the magazine in the first place. In the homegrown edition of Open Mic Theatre, we were wonderfully entertained and the pictures tell the story (p. 21).
Coming up this July is the book launch of Autering Nollywood: Critical perspectives on The Figurine by Adesina Afolayan (p. 36 ).
