Nigeria-born actor and movie Producer Christopher Oluwatosin, based in the United Kingdom, who recently produced a movie titled “Indulgence”.

The film centers on the theme of family, and explores the importance of raising children with good values and avoiding the indulgence of their bad behavior.

Oluwatosin, who is known for his talent as an international actor, says that the movie’s storyline is one that families and individuals can learn from. He admits to being very selective about the stories he produces, always looking for a good storyline that can inspire and educate.

The production process for the film involved post-production and editing, as well as color correction and grading. Oluwatosin says that finding the right actors who can interpret the story he is producing is crucial. Not every actor can play every role, and it’s important to work with actors who can bring the story to life.

As a filmmaker, Oluwatosin reveals that the public doesn’t always know about the challenges faced by filmmakers during production. For instance, not having a film village where producers can film freely without being harassed by thugs demanding money can be frustrating.

Working closely with a good writer and creative director is also vital, he says. And while the quality of the film depends on the budget and finances available, Oluwatosin believes that quality should always come before quantity. If finances are tight, he says, it’s better to go back to the drawing board and re-strategize, rather than producing something below par.

Oluwatosin emphasizes that a good story and a fantastic director with a good vision are essential for a well-produced film. Finding actors who can interpret the story well, scouting for the right location, and obtaining the necessary equipment for the job are also crucial. A good production manager can help with budget breakdowns, he says.

The film industry has been evolving in Nigeria, with the emergence of the Nollywood industry. Oluwatosin believes that Nollywood has broken the cliche of how the world at large sees Nigeria, and has built many opportunities for the world to see the country’s cultures and diversity. He is confident that his latest film, “Christopher King”, which is set to be released in cinemas and on Netflix, will be a success, thanks to the story and the creative director he worked with, Mr. Saheed Apanpa.

In conclusion, Oluwatosin encourages everyone to watch “Indulgence” and learn from its message about family values. He also hopes that more filmmakers will embrace quality over quantity, and that the film industry in Nigeria will continue to grow and evolve, showcasing the country’s talents and cultural diversity.
