Many producers are complaining that they don’t make money from movie production how true is that.

Well, that is a true situation. Most people don’t make money from movies because of planning. If you plan well, you’d make money. That’s what I believe. We still have many movies that break the boundaries across the continent and globe. So if you plan well, you’d see that it will work well.

What can you say about the state of the industry now?

The state of the industry is picking up. The rate of the industry is commendable and very exciting. See the quality of works and productions we have. You see it is moving well and we are thankful for everyone who buys our works and supports us.


Why did it take you that long to produce your own movie?

Like I said, it takes planning and looking at the way marketers and executive producers are the one enjoying on our efforts. It’s not encouraging and we can’t really stay working without having results and success.

Charles Is Now King After Queen Elizabeth’s Death— Here’s Who’s Next In Line Of British Succession



When Queen Elizabeth II died Thursday afternoon, the crown was immediately passed on to her eldest son and heir, Charles, as part of the United Kingdom’s constitutional monarchy system.


Charles is now king, Buckingham Palace said in a statement announcing Elizabeth’s death, though a coronation—traditionally held at Westminster Abbey—will be planned later to officially crown the new king (Charles’ wife, Camilla, is now the queen consort, according to the palace).
