Film producer Socrate Safo has intimated that the current woes of the movie industry are largely a result of the stupidity of industry players.
Many industry players have identified other reasons for the current state of the movie industry but Socrate Safo in an interview with Graphic Showbiz laid the plight on the stupidity of industry players.
“What the industry is going through now is as a result of our stupidity; we are the cause of our own downfall. I mean it is the same people who gave their movies to media houses to show for free,” he said.
Socrate Safo who is also the Director at the National Commission on Culture – NCC further stated that movie producers were in a hurry to catch up with trends without considering the adverse effect of not making money when they gave out free access to movies they spent money to produce.
“We uploaded our movies on Internet platforms free of charge and if people have free access to the movies, do you expect them to pay to watch them or go to the cinemas? No, they won’t. We are the cause of what is happening now,” he stated.
Socrate is however of the view that the movie industry still has a lot of prospects that the players can take advantage of if they go back to the drawing board to restrategize.
