Christopher Oluwatosin’s Latest Film Explores Importance of Family Values
Christopher Oluwatosin, a Nigerian-born actor and movie producer based in the United Kingdom, has recently produced a film called “Indulgence” that delves into the importance of instilling good values in children and avoiding the indulgence of their bad behavior.
Known for his talent as an international actor, Oluwatosin is highly selective about the stories he produces, always looking for a good storyline that can inspire and educate families and individuals alike.
The film production process involved post-production and editing, as well as color correction and grading. Oluwatosin believes that finding the right actors who can interpret the story he is producing is crucial, as not every actor can play every role. It’s essential to work with actors who can bring the story to life.
However, Oluwatosin admits that the public doesn’t always know about the challenges filmmakers face during production. For instance, not having a film village where producers can film freely without being harassed by thugs demanding money can be frustrating. He also highlights the importance of working closely with a good writer and creative director, as well as scouting the right location and obtaining the necessary equipment for the job.
In Oluwatosin’s view, quality should always come before quantity, regardless of the budget available. If finances are tight, he says it’s better to go back to the drawing board and re-strategize rather than producing something below par.
The Nigerian film industry, or Nollywood, has been evolving rapidly, and Oluwatosin believes that it has broken the cliche of how the world sees Nigeria. He is confident that his latest film, “Christopher King,” set to be released in cinemas and on Netflix, will be a success thanks to the story and the creative director he worked with, Mr. Saheed Apanpa.
Oluwatosin emphasizes that a good story and a fantastic director with a good vision are essential for a well-produced film. A good production manager can help with budget breakdowns, but ultimately, it’s the story that matters.
In conclusion, Oluwatosin encourages everyone to watch “Indulgence” and learn from its message about family values.
He hopes that more filmmakers will embrace quality over quantity, and that the film industry in Nigeria will continue to grow and evolve, showcasing the country’s talents and cultural diversity.
