Senator representing Bayelsa East in the Nigerian Senate, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, have pledged to sponsor a Nigeria movie on the eve of his 100th Common Sense series.
The Common sense Senator made this known on his Facebook page.
Here is the post:
The 100th Commonsense Series
How time flies!
Two years ago, I began shooting the common sense messages in video format as my non partisan contribution to the development of the full strata of Nigerian society from the grassroots to the very top.
Now, after 99 episodes, we are about to shot the 100th episode.
Now, this episode is all about giving back!
God has blessed me immensely through Nigeria and by His grace I own Dream Magic Studios, one of the most modern studios on earth!
It is based in Los Angeles and used to be owned by the legendary and sometimes infamous Larry Flint from whom I bought it.
It has some of the very best sound stages the world can boast of and they can be converted into almost any scene required to make a movie.
One of my clients/tenants is Kevin Hart and the studio regularly plays host to some of the best and brightest contemporary movie and TV stars. The best always attracts the best.
To give back to Nigeria and help develop the Nollywood movie industry, I want to shoot a Nollywood/Hollywood movie that will take the world by storm and show the entertainment industry that Nigeria’s movie industry has come of age.
I will finance this movie and guarantee world wide distribution both on television and cinema.
Now, here’s where you come in.
Are you a Nollywood pro? Are you an amateur set on making it big in Nollywood and on the world stage?
Send us your script and a panel to be headed by the queen of the African movie industry, our very own Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, will rate the scripts and select the best script and I will sign a contract with the winner and make their script into a movie that will be of sufficient quality to qualify for entry into the world’s very best Film Festivals.
Who knows, you could even win an Oscar!
Send your scripts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us make Nigeria’s movie industry the biggest and best in the world together!
And remember, my name is Ben Murray-Bruce and I just want to make Commonsense!
