Ghanaian actor James Gardiner has pathetically assured Ghanaians that there’s still hope for the Ghanaian movie industry which died a long time ago and is waiting to be buried.
He said even though the industry’s current state isn’t one that people are proud of, the performance of Ghanaian movies at various international film festivals and at awards ceremonies since last year was indication that things haven’t fallen apart beyond rescue.
“I feel like we are growing; in everything there will be challenges, everyone faces challenges so instead of bashing, let us all put in positive energy and give suggestions that will help the industry to grow.
“Steadily we are getting there, we are filming, we are doing things outside the country, we are getting there gradually so we should not give up on our industry,” he said.
According to James Gardiner, he had shot about four movies this year, one in Ghana and the rest in Nigeria. “I have also shot a series in Ghana, Entrapped by Smartty’s Productions, so you see, we are not doing badly at all,’ he indicated.
James Gardiner has featured in numerous Ghanaian and Nollywood movies, some of his movies are My Husband’s Secret, Happy Death Day, Broken Mirror, A Night with her among others.
