Pause and take a quick second to think about how you generally get to know about an upcoming film. Is it through the trailer or film still?
For a lot of people in Nigeria, their first exposure is most likely usually through the trailer. Film stills generally come second or even third. Why is that?
I spoke to Chukwuka Osakwe, an emerging Photographer, filmmaker and director based in Lagos, Nigeria, to explain the need for more unit photographers in Nollywood movies and why stills are critical to the success of a film.
