Mr. Ivan Quashigah, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Farmhouse Productions, says actors and actresses deserve to be paid very well considering their efforts in entertaining and educating the masses.
He said this at the launch of Season Two of the “Stryke” serial drama which would start showing on the Farmhouse Movie App on Friday, November 26, 2021.
According to the renowned filmmaker who has in the past produced award-winning movies like “Things We Do For Love” and YOLO, the worsening plight of retired actors makes it pertinent to divulge creative ways to raise revenue to pay actors/actresses very well.
Mr. Quashigah asserted that filmmakers can use innovation to generate revenue to pay actors as well as crew members very well especially with the availability of digital film distribution platforms which offers opportunities to maximize revenue.
“We need to work towards paying our actors/actresses well. In this modern era, there are numerous distribution platforms to show your movies and get profitable returns, unlike the past where distribution was limited to a few making it difficult for filmmakers to break even and actors suffer the consequence.
“So, by exploring this new distribution platform it offers filmmakers the opportunity to maximize returns and pay actors very well because they deserve it,” he said.
Speaking about season two of “Stryke”, Mr. Quashigah said his outfit always creates content that would resonate with the youth and was keen on advising them about how to make good use of their time.
He noted that the season one “Stryke” had received a massive commendation from movie lovers around the world which therefore triggered the need to do a season that would produce more thrills.
Some of the star characters in season two include Rev. Benjamin Adalete, Aaron Adatsi, Fella Makafui, Priscilla Opoku Agyemang popularly known as “Ahoufe Patri”, Mariam Owusu Poku, Jason Edwards, Jeneral Ntatia, among others.
