    Okay oh…good to know it is all fun and games. Unfortunately, I am not laughing or smiling. I hope the people behind this know what is called “desensitization”.

    Well done to due diligence on their part in the making and hello to the real world … there are more high risk scenes that have been shot without sending the public into panic mode

    Well said @mde! Why all the big publicity stunt just to show that a film maker can technically re-create a realistic accident! It simply reinforces the idea that Nollywood is still miles behind. Besides getting the technical production side right, there’s script writing, smooth handling of dialogue, acting, editing, etc. all of which still need work!
    Support & Respect do not come because you asked, conned or bullied people for it. Just do a good movie, a great movie, people will watch and they will give it due respect! Just saying.

    This video that they did makes no sense. Who is fighting with them? What is all the story of have faith in Nollywood, this is what got you fooled, we fooled you, no investigative journalism, who is fighting with them? Make your point educatedly. You caused people unnecessary heartache as a publicity stunt and then you come back and insult those same people with a tatelessly done video with terrible grammar. PR people send your proposals to directors like this and stop looking for people who are already polished.

    I must admit that I spoke too soon. I am highly, highly, beyond a doubt, impressed by the level of detail, expertise and professionalism displayed by the whole team particularly Stanlee Ohikhuare and Ani Iyoho.

    Abeg, I apologize because, like the team mentioned in this BTS Video, I never “hexpeered” this kind of realistic scene in a Nigerian Movie. Looking through Stanlee ‘s other movies like Kpians: The Feast of Souls or Verdict: The LaVena Johnson Murder Conspiracy, I now understand that he is in a league of his own! He is clearly passionate about his field as opposed to churning garbage on a weekly/ monthly basis. He is clearly a director who is striving to push Nollywood forward and just needs our support to do so…

    Una Well Done and with this, I really can’t wait to see the movie.

    So much acclaimed Hollywood doesn’t shoot this kind of scene. All they do is “wired actors” in front of big green screen. If you think this is cheap to come by, ask any graduate of movie production from full sail university
