Abuja– Popular Nollywood actor, Ramsey Noah has appealed to the Federal
Government to create an enabling environment for cinemas to thrive across
the country.

Noah, said, on the sideline of the
ongoing Tozali African Fashion
and Cultural Week in Abuja.

He said that more cinemas would attract more viewers and motivate film
makers to inject indigenous content.

“I will like the Federal Government to create enabling environment for cinemas
to be established in all parts of the country.

`’The cost of obtaining license should be reduce to encourage more people to
go into cinema operation; this is because the demand for local contents in
cinema is quite high.

“When that is achieved, we the practitioners will then create demand, raise
funds and create quality indigenous contents that will attract many to the

“If we have more cinemas in the country, it will also provide opportunity for
more Nigerians to watch movies of their choice,’’ Noah said.

He explained that it was a good thing that Nollywood had contents that
could be consumed globally, stressing that the contents transient language,
culture and traditional barriers.

He, however, stressed that some Nollywood movies did not currently have
enough content but with more cinemas, film makers would be encouraged to
begin to inject quality local contents in their movies.

On piracy, the Nollywood star said that pirates were encroaching into the
industry and that it was affecting film makers, producers and actors in many

Noah who also spoke on his achievements in the movie industry said, “ it is
great and overwhelming; I did not envisage fame and success at the
beginning of my career in Nollywood.

“However, it feels good to see that you are in a position in the industry where
you are respected and leave a legacy behind.

“In movies, I play someone’s character; what you are seeing is not me, the
Ramsey you see in movies is different from the one you see in real life.
“ I try everything possible to spearhead so many productions that are
successful; whatever I can add to make it good, I do it; that is what sustains
me till now,’’ he said.

The `My Wife and I’ star expressed concern about technicalities in movie
production in the country.

According to him, there was the need for film makers in the industry to
coordinate technicalities with actors’ performance to give better delivery.
“I think we need to coordinate the technical side of film making and blend it
with the actors so as to avoid unnecessary disconnect.

“It has been observed that there is a disconnection between technicalities
and actors; technicalities like showing of doubt by an actor but the actor’s
action do not connect.

“This makes the act in the movie obviously unnatural and unprofessional;
thus we need to sync the two so as to have a balance,’’ Noah said.

He also revealed that himself and comedian Ayo Makun also known as `AY’
are currently working on a project, `Life of Ramsey Noah.’
“It is like a story. We will start production next month.

“I also have my own project for `Ramsey Films’ that I am working on. I want
to thank God for Bank of Industry (BoI) for their support and assistance in the project,’’ he said. (NAN)
