Ghanaian producer, Ivan Quashiga has advised the Government of Ghana not to invest any money in the movie industry with the intention of helping to revive it in anyway.
Answering a question on what his advice will be to the government on how to save the Film Industry, Ivan Quashiga said; “I would tell them that they shouldn’t even think about putting money in the film industry or movie industry. They shouldn’t worry about investing money into the industry.”
He explained that the movie industry is one that can grow and stand out on it own such that it can also generate its own revenue only if certain structures are taken into consideration instead of trying to resolve the struggle of the industry with the influence of money.
“This is one industry that if you don’t put money in, it can still do well on its own.” He said.
Ivan Quashiga stated very important points as ways to revive the film industry.
“All you have to do is to place a ban on foreign contents, from morning to let’s say 10pm, that it should be local. When that happens, no TV or radio station can produce the content that they need to feed the period.
“The hundreds of students that are out there looking for jobs, suddenly you have created jobs for them because we have to produce the contents to feel in,” he told Zionfelix
Mr. Ivan Quashiga is the producer for popular Ghanaian series such as: ‘Things We Do For Love’ and ‘YOLO’.
