    Born in a Norwegian fishing village, Andre up and left everything he knew and everyone he loved to chase his dreams. Being raised in a fishing village, his life was simple and unspectacular. However, that was not enough for him, like many of us, he had dreams but unlike many of us, he took the risk and he went for it!

    Growing up, Andre was constantly in front of the television very curious of how everything worked. Unfortunately he could not afford to ask his mum to take him to the cinema every weekend, but he was an avid follower of films that were broadcasted on standard television. At an early age he knew what he wanted to be: “I want to become a director!”

    These movies are never as low as these sensational stories sometimes try to make us believe. Come on! By the time you properly cost all the things you receive free or on deferred fees, the movies cost a lot more than they advertise. Movies cost money, period. Even if you didn't have to pay it.

    Will read the story and comment later today...

    Very true. There are a lot of 'hidden' costs but the impressive thing, I think, is being able to 'get' actors, locations, props and many other things for 'free'. It all comes down to having a good story that people want to back with 'their' time, skills, property, equipment & so on.

    One advantage (I maybe completely wrong here) oyinbo people have over us is they will jump on and 'help' on a projet they belive in if you are starting out or unknown. The issue I've had with Naija & black people in general is they are first & foremost interested in "How much coins you dey drop for me NOW, NOW!"
