    ..at the end of the day after making some money ... most times they still relinguish it to the marketers .... I remember keeping Faith after it had been kept in the cooler and ego had recovered some money . I read in her interview where she said she gave it to the marketers .... to market

    This is exactly what my main point is,the creativity space they enjoy because of the support the marketers give them,and not about the cash.Money isn't everything in the art of moviemaking.The minute you start thinking too much about money,you start making crappy movies.
    Too much money concerns constipate creativity.

    Keeping faith made so much from the premiere alone, Ego just sold it outrightly to OJ productions. So it dont matter how much money she makes from the marketer as far as she is able to make her money from premiers and the us release.

    True but the YMG marketers are just a little better cos they also have their own faults just like them EMG marketers. I just hope the new distribution frame work works out so we get to see people do their stuffs freely.

    If bollywood can do it with the hindu language(that is, get wide audience with their native lingo), so can YMG.Bollywood did it with class and style in their productions, and so can the yoruba producers.

    As long as they keep on going in the direction of creativity and higher quality productions,and overhauling the marketing aspect,they are well on their way.

    They don't need EMG and the english language to get wider audience.The audience they have already is huge and it can only get larger and larger.

    I don't even need to state this, because they know this already, and some of them are working towards achieving it.

    As for DS,i don't see her moving away from YMG sector.She can do some english productions every now and then(if she's called to), but she is a "YMGian" to the core, and we love her like that.That is the only sector that freely allows the creative juice to flow unhindered.

    "Gorgeousness" is subjective, just like everything else. I think she is drop dead gorgeous as well as pretty,see.
    And i know there are so many other fans of hers who think she is even more than gorgeous,so...

    A lot of people think that Rita Dominic is gorgeous,but i don't.I think she is just pretty,see?

    It is all subjective views.As they say,"Gorgeousness" is in the eyes of the beholder.

    of course it's all subjective... and i don't necessarily think Rita is "goregeous" either, but... well, she does have *something*

    there's something about her look that has "star" written all over it... maybe it's more her *style* than her natural looks, but she has that thing that if you saw her on the street and you didn't even know who she was, you would have the sense that she is someone you're supposed to know...

    Doris... she just seems like "everyday" pretty to me. like a good-looking housewife.

    not that there's anything wrong with that, of course...

    You see,subjectivity.My own view of these two actresses is the exact opposite of yours.I see Rita as an everyday houswwife and not a star,and i have seen enough of her homvies to allow me to come to that conclusion.
    Rita is sensuous,though.
    As for DS, i see her covered in star quality.
    Subjectivity.

    if there were a way to thank a post more than once, i would definitely be thanking this one at least 5 times.

    the discussion actually should have ended here, but for some reason, everybody seems to be ignoring Sola's posts as they commit themselves to hysterical rabblerousing...

    hahahaha! don't believe the hype!

    look... Stephanie would not have shot in Nigeria for a lesser budget. it probably cost her much, much less to shoot in LA.

    so far, she has remained tight-lipped about how much she spent on the movie, but i am willing to wager that she actually spent very little.

    remember: Stephanie is enrolled in film school.

    which means that most of her cast and crew would most likely be composed of her fellow students, who work for free.

    most of the equipment she used would also be free or very cheap.

    her making that movie in the US has nothing to do with "having to leave EMG to be creative"... that movie is the equivalent of a film student's senior project.
