African celebrated actor Van Vicker has lamented that he is not happy about the current state of the Ghana Movie Industry.
The actor in an interview with Ghanaian blogger Attractive Mustapha said he knows a lot of his friends shoot films for the love of it but afterward the movie stays in the room and they do not make profits from the movies they shoot.
Van Vicker revealed that he was happy when he heard about the National Film Authority because the industry needs it.
He added that he knows the authority is working but output has been too slow.
“I think they are doing great things, but at the end of the day, the film producers say they are not getting the outlets to market their movies and actors will say producers are not producing much and they are not being paid well so we are all not happy”.
He was quick to add that the industry is not dead.
The only way producers can make money is through the cinema halls and we have only two major ones in Ghana.
Talking about the online streaming platforms, he said they do not give the producers better offers which generally cost much to produce but the returns are low.
