The veteran Ghanaian performer, Lydia Forson has said that Ghana’s motion picture industry has far to go. It is because of subsidizing requirements from people who have faith in the film and the legislature.
She stated that each industry experiences its stage. The industry is not present at its best. However, she makes a comparison with where it was quite a while prior. Regardless, she trusts it is better in light of the fact that quite a long while back, performing artists were not making much money. It was still observed as a leisure activity. In spite of the fact that the industry is battling, she believes that it has not crumbled.
She was of the view that our greatest test has dependably been subsidizing. A ton of movies in Ghana, despite the fact that they are seen everywhere throughout the world, 99.9 percent are from individual assets and enthusiastic people who have confidence in the film. We don’t have any genuine spots that we can go and state tune in, this is the place we get our cash from, not even from banks.
The performer included that most corporate elements don’t put resources into the film. This issue of financing she trusts cuts crosswise over motion picture ventures in Africa, of which Ghana is of no exemption.
As indicated by her, however, the NPP government is at present pushing media industry plan, the group still experience the customary procedure of looking for sponsorship in view of the ‘frame of mind of lawmakers’.
She expressed, “Over the years, we sort for these funds ourselves. But this year, with the current government pushing the creative arts agenda, I was determined to make a statement but a lot of times, there’s what politicians say and here’s what they do. So we decided to go through the right process where we send letters and all of that.”
