      Sup Genny & Co. Here at your request. 🙂 Of course Marrakech International Film Festival is real and the film is screening there. All true. Did she do the work that she is taking credit for? No. Fact.

      I’ve read your earlier comments about Yinka Edwards directing this film. He is listed as the director of photography on this project. I’m wondering if you are confused about the role of a DOP in contrast with the role of a director.

      You have also claimed that Genevieve missed shoots and left it to Yinka Edwards to direct; for a film in which she plays a major character, I find this very hard to believe. How did they shoot the many scenes which require her presence as the main character? The British director Paul Hills is listed as the second unit director on this project, so for any scenes in which Genny couldnt direct, I would think the responsibility would fall on him to take charge, not Yinka Edwards. But I dont think you even mentioned him.. So again I wonderhow you came to the conclusion that Yinka Edwards did all the work for Genevieve

      Here they come…. No darling, we did not confuse the role of a director and the DOP. When the director is on set and does not know what they are doing, the DOP in this scenario jumped in. When the director was unprofessional and did not show up or show up late, the DOP kept it moving.

      A 2nd unit director is generally in charge of a separate unit where the lead director is not. They are not on the main unit waiting to pick up the directors slack. Paul was the 1st AD. Completely different things.

      Dont start nuttin, there shall be nuttin and we can keep all of these stories to those who were there. But the more aliases you set up to ‘ask questions’ the more you out yourselves Genny & Chinny. Like the average Bella reader knows who Paul Hills is. Keep outing yourselves.

      Lol you sound quite paranoid.. I simply went to IMDb and saw the list of the crew. This is public information. I also saw pics of Paul hills on the lionheart Instagram page helping genevieve to direct when genny was in front of the camera. He was not on any separate set. The AD does not need to be on a separate set. He can take over when the director is indisposed.

      I have also noticed how you avoided the question of Genevieve’s so called absence on set given she is a major character with a lot of scenes. You changed your tune and mentioned tardiness. But please, share with all of us your tales from the set you claim to have been on. Very funny, even calling Paul hills by his first name as if you are on first name basis with him. Girl please, I doubt you have even seen the man in the flesh.

      In which case, copy and paste from imdb to google and understand what people do on a film set before you question whether we misunderstand the difference between a dop and director. And not directing a film does not mean you are not on set. It means you did not direct the film. Yes I said you.

    ps an assistant director does not mean directors assistant.

    “The role of an assistant director on a film includes tracking daily progress against the filming production schedule, arranging logistics, preparing daily call sheets, checking cast and crew, and maintaining order on the set. They also have to take care of the health and safety of the crew.[1] The role of an assistant to the director is often confused with assistant director but the responsibilities are entirely different. ”

    It is public information.

    Second unit director – also public information
    “Second unit is a discrete team of filmmakers tasked with filming shots or sequences of a production, separate from the main or “first” unit.[1] The second unit will often shoot simultaneously with the other unit or units, allowing the filming stage of production to be completed faster.”

      Beloved, where there is no second unit director because there is no second unit the AD can take the role of a director. But since, wikipedia is your ONLY point of reference, allow me to quote the relationship between a DOP and a director directly from there.

      The cinematographer SELECTS the camera, film stock, lenses, filters, etc., to realize the scene in accordance with the intentions of the director. Relations between the cinematographer and director vary; in some instances the DIRECTOR WILL ALLOW the cinematographer COMPLETE INDEPENDENCE; in others, the director allows little to none, even going so far as to specify exact camera placement and lens selection. Such a level of involvement is NOT COMMON once the director and cinematographer have become COMFORTABLE with each other; the director will typically CONVEY to the cinematographer what is wanted from a scene VISUALLY, and ALLOW the cinematographer LATITUDE in achieving that effect..

      You are welcome!

      Yes Ma’am missing the point in everything Jada is saying. in Nollywood, no one cares about the proper definition of the roles. Everyone does everything 🙂 Trying to explain the difference between a first ad and directors asst to Nollywooders is like going to the circus and asking why there are clowns. stop asking why there are clowns at the circus, ask why you keen going to the circus.
