The Nigerian movie industry (or Nollywood as it is often called) has come a long way. As would be expected, movie making in Africa in the 1960s was no mean feat. Film making technology across the world was still in its early stages. If the equipment was difficult to setup in other parts of the world, in Nigeria, the equipment was virtually non-existent. Change started when the government of Nigeria begun to pressure local television and radio stations to broadcast more local content and less foreign productions. A direct result of this was the honing of local actors skills.

Cost of Nollywood Movies

There is a cost in the final product of Nigerian films including VCD, DVD, and/or Blue-Ray. A Nigerian movie costs $2 USD on the continent. Compare that with the cost of at least $20 USD and sometimes up to $50 USD for an American or Foreign movie. With some Africa countries having less than 50 per cent of the country living on less than a dollar per day, the pool that can buy  these foreign films at that price is small.

Producing Nollywood Movies  

Nigerian movies have a number of things going for them and that can be picked out as the factors that have led to its success. The first is the low budget. Unlike Hollywood and even Bollywood films that sometimes require millions of dollars to produce, Nigerian movies require much less. It is not surprising to find out that the total cost of producing a certain movie is less than $50,000. USD The second point, which is related to the first, is the high number of films churned each year. The total number of Nollywood movies released in any given year is between 1,000 and 2,000: a large number by any measure.

A third key success factor is the story line. With themes ranging from religion, marriage, traditions, and politics, the movies are able to strike a chord with audiences across the continent. A typical Hollywood movie would find this market a hard sell as the content and theme of the moves are sometimes very difficult for the average African resident to relate to.
