Filmmaker Prince David Osei has revealed the tremendous effect of coronavirus on Ghana’s film industry and the key players.
He made the revelation in an interview with ace journalist Doreen Avio of JoyNews. He stated that some producers are done with their films but are having doubts on when to release them. Shooting, he added, had come to a halt since every individual had to take precautions to avoid catching the virus.
“My movie ‘News Man’ is finally ready. We were supposed to take it to the censorship board and then book a date at Silverbird, but with what is happening right now we don’t know when this would be over,” Prince David stated.
Prince added that most filmmakers in the country are contemplated releasing the movie but they are not sure how many people would turn up for the premier especially with the cases of coronavirus increasing every day.
Prince David said that most producers and directors are waiting to hear some good news that would send them back to work. “Everything is on standstill, now we can’t really go on set, we were hoping to do another movie but I told my friends we had to wait.”
He commended the work some of his colleagues are doing to help with the education of their followers about the COVID-19.
“No matter what happens we all need to take the precautionary measures,” Prince David added.
