Nigerian Movie Auditions For Kids And Teens
concerns. As it is already known that the goal of Nollywood is to
meassure up with other international movie industries like Hollywood
and the rest.
To be candid on this matter, Nollywood has lacked balancing in the
disseminations of her movie genres and balancing is very vital
in such quest.
Most cases, we watch movies like Super8, Problem Child, Space Jam,
Harry Porter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Baby's Day Out, etc and begin
to wonder how many Nigerian kid movie we have watched; after much rack
of our brain, the answer is one movie or none.
In foreign countries, it is very easy to find movie auditions for kids
and teens. Their channels and movie production firms are not
neglecting the aspects of kids and teens.
HBO, NBC, Nickelodeon, Disney, etc are really at their best.
There are so many factors causing the neglect of kids and teens
movies. Parental factors where most Nigerian parents still believe
that early exposure of their kids to
acting will certainly lead them to uncultured ways of life.
On the part of producers and TV channels, their profit oriented ways
have made things worse; they rather produce absurd movies than take
the production of kids' movies seriously.
Movies industry is meant to entertain and educate. It surprises that
Nollywood is a family or caucus industry where the same
actors and actresses keep reappearing because of the monopoly running
in the industry.
When few publicly announced auditions exist, Nigerian factor comes in.
Instead of selection based on merits, money turns the
table around; no wonder, Nollywood is full of jesters and rascals
performing rascal scenes (where you see Fuji musicians misacting the
scripts and exchanging abusive words and derogatory languages).
This post is a call for more Nigerian movie auditions for kids and
teens. Kid movies will help prepare Nigerian kids and teens for
adulthood to come.
