The President of the Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey, has entreated movie producers to collaborate so they can be competitive on the global market. According to him, Ghanaian movie producers undertaking solo projects has been a bane to the industry’s progress and it was necessary for them to work together.
Speaking at the maiden edition of the Creative Arts Industry Forum which came off at the National Theatre recently, Okraku Mantey said it was a common practice around the world for production companies to work together.
“Even in Hollywood, which is regarded as the biggest movie industry in the world, production companies work together. It is not uncommon to see production houses working together, they normally join forces and resources and that is helping.
“I’m looking forward to the days I will see about three production companies Like Sparrow Productions, Movie Africa and Miracle Films at credit crawls at the end of a film,” he said.
