In 2006, our focus was on Senegal and Nigeria; in 2008-2009,our focus was Ghana. Why Nigeria? Nigeria has the most vibrant
pop film industry in all of Africa, known as Nollywood (see http://www.nollywoodfoundation.org). However, we cover the most
part of Western (Sub Sahara) Africa that includes Benin Republic, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Chad, Gambia, Ghana,
Cote d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Sao Tome and Principe Islands,
Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, and Western Sahara. Why Sub Sahara?
In 2005, we were on speculations in other parts of Africa. We went Northernmost to Egypt (see pictures herein), then Southernmost
to South Africa. For several reasons, we chose to settle for the West. We know West Africa well; we speak some of the languages.
The ECOWAS treaty in West Africa (similar to the EU) offers mobility of the peoples and services. An actor in Benin Republic
can be flown into Senegal for film shooting the next day.
We know the cities and villages in Nigeria and Ghana, as we have been there severally. Along these lines, we are developing
a model artist village on some 800 acres in Maabang in the Ahafo Ano North District of the Ashanti Region of Ghana for replication
in other parts of Africa. We can sublet the acreage to filmmaker and film producers who use to shoot in Ghana.
