IS BONGO MOVIE INDUSTRY’S DIRECTION PROMISING ?
By RODA MAKAMA.
bongo movies are Tanzania’s art gulley where previously it was in first position followed by music and games but now days when they were dripping lost their quality as many people like movies because it’s content meet the needs of consumers in general.
I have previously visited the movies that attracted the audience here we will not mention the late Stevin Kanumba cottage of our film where he dared to play with people from abroad including Nigeria like devils kingdom and my sister and other film like Ancle JJ ,this is it ,young billionaire and so foth.
As long as days goes on moving our film lose its quality, because of artist themselves faiing to wear up reality as for viewers become boring also another issue of education and training help to boost development in film but in Tanzania some directors have no education on how to make those movies appea rauthentic. Therefore directors must have even degree in art and film production.
Another challenge is insufficient time for film preparation as in Tanzania, movies are prepared for few days like three or two months is not enough to find the best for audience, when our outdoor spends even more than one year to make a single movie.
Shortage of money for renting and buying sophisticated material to produce high quality film the same shortage looses seem led to poor technology as film being in low standard. Also marketing for Tanzania is problem because artists depend only on domestic. It would be best to advertise their films even broadly to get more market.
Artist themselves are stumbling block in the development of their films because they have no position and very involved in politics and wear the parts clothing is not acceptable and artist who do not work together to help each other example issue of Wastara Juma problems as artists can unite together to make sure returned as previously.
I flash back on 6 April 2017 RC of Dar es salaam Paul Makonda burned the replacement and distribution of outdoor films with the aim of promoting our film industry but this is not very precise way to improve our work artist themselves have to change their minds and dream higher.
Unity is strength artists and Tanzanis must unite together in order to improve film and to make it standard on content ,market reality and so many things for remedy. Bongo movies is for us let put our efforts.
