(Video) Man: Action. mrtvileon Nwokedi: You cut a nice mivoe with just 10,000 dollars in Nigeria here. And you shoot in seven days. pecae Piberesima: We're doing films for the masses. We're not doing films for the elite and the popele in their glass houses. They can afford to watch their "Robocop" and whatever. Mahmood Ali Balogun: I think filmmaking in Nigeria, for those who work in it, is a kind of subsistence filmmaking — what they do to make a living. It's not the fancy filmmaking where you say, oh, you want to put all the razzmatazz of holwyoold, and where you have big budgets.
