More and more celebrities are voicing out on the police brutality ongoing in Nigeria.

Veteran actress, Iretiola Doyle has also expressed her concerned over the violence meted out on the masses by uniformed men.

This is coming after policemen from Trinity Police State, Ajegunle, Lagos state shot dead a 20-year-old woman and severely left gunshot injuries on her boyfriend on Saturday night, JBB reports.

She said if you have problems with the average policeman on the street, depending on how inebriated, angry, resentful they are on the day, things can go from 0 -100 real quick with slaps flying for having the temerity to “question authority”.

“What is it about the Nigerian uniform; it could be any – a high ranking officer, even that of a ragtag task force, that often causes the wearer to ascribe to themselves a level of superiority not to be queried and in who’s presence one must quake & bow?

Kwata with the average policeman on the street, depending on how inebriated/ angry/resentful they are on the day, things can go from 0 -100 real quick with slaps flying for having the temerity to “question authority”. I believe its a throwback from colonialism,” she wrote on Twitter.

The embattled singer was out on Easter Sunday chilling in front of his Trump Tower condo building in Chicago. He puffed on a cigar, right down to the stub, while chatting on his cell phone.

He also happens to be sitting right next to a Rolls-Royce. It wasn’t clear if the car belongs to him, but the photo said it all.

Keep filming, don’t wait till you have $1m before shooting – Daniel Ademinokan tells colleagues

Published

Nollywood movie director, Daniel Ademinokan has urged his colleague to continue shooting movies, irrespective of low budgets.

In a write up on Instagram, he gave tips on how to handle the camera, edit movies, work on good plot and handle actors to make good movie despite the budget.

“Actors and crew that have worked with me over the years know that, as a director, I love well orchestrated camera movements and blockings that add dynamism to a scene. I strongly believe that a great performance by an actor plus the right camera movement/angle equals to a fantastic scene, and of course a good film.

As a directing instructor, I have seen a lot of my students struggle in the editing room with the decision between the well executed steady-cam shot where the actors performance was just OK, and the take where the actors performance was spectacular but on the static close up.

More often than not, younger (newer) filmmakers opt for the shot on the steady-cam because it adds some kind of production value (and of course they paid for the gear so they might as well just use it. LOL).

However, the questions I have always asked are these; What drives your story? The shot or the performance? Is the camera movement symbolic in the film that you would pick it over the actor’s performance? Or is the actor’s performance more important to the story and the audience over the shot? Consider these two points.

1. Less than 15% of the people who will see your film are filmmakers who pay attention to your shots.

2. You are making the film for the audience and not yourself. What will they remember the most; the story you’re telling through your actors or the steady-cam/jib/drone shot? So this is what I always say to my students. Plan. Know what you want to film before you get on set. Talk to your actors and understand the objective of the scene.

Explain what your shot is and what you expect of them and let them know how important the shot is to the THE STORY YOU ARE TELLING (and not how important it is to you). There is nothing wrong with having a great shot a movie – just don’t use your actors to practice on set.

If it’s something dynamic, know how to achieve it before you bring the actors in and wear them out on set. Much love to you guys and remember, keep filming. Don’t wait till you have $1Million before you get your camera & shoot something. LOL.” He wrote.
