In her highly anticipated follow up to her highly informative 2011 book The Black British Filmmaker's Guide, London-based writer Nadia Denton is now currently hard at work on her new book, The Nigerian Filmmaker's Guide to Success: Beyond Nollywood, which, as with her previous book, will deal with finance, marketing, distribution of films from the Nigerian filmmaker’s point of view this time.

So far, for the book, she has completed over 40 interviews of some projected 80 interviews Ms. Denton plans for her upcoming filmmaking guide, which she expects to have completed and ready for the public by the end of Spring 2014.

And among those she has already interviewed are directors such as Obi Emelonye (Dir. The Mirror Boy & Last Flight to Abuja), Kunle Afolayan (Dir. The Figurine & Phone Swap), Michelle Bello (Dir. Flower Girl), Kenneth Gyang (Dir. Confusion Na Wa and the Winner of Best Film African Movie Academy Awards 2013 - pictured above).

Some of the other people involved in the film industry she has interviewed for the book, include such distinguished persons like Ayuko Babu (Founder & Exec Director of Pan African Film Festival),  Afolabi Adesanya (Former MD Nigerian Film Corporation), Fidelis Duker (Founder Abuja Film Festival), Jason Njoku (Founder & CEO IROKO Partners) and Richard Aseme (Director of International Distribution, Paramount Pictures UK).

As Ms. Denton says in the introduction for her book, her goal is to create the definitive film industry reference manual that “offers guidance to a new generation of Nigerian filmmaker. This rapidly emerging, new class of creator in Nigeria and the diaspora is currently revolutionizing the industry …and these progressive filmmakers want to have theatrical runs of their films, compete on an international level, tour festival circuits, secure favorable distribution deals and win academy nominations.

She further goes on to say that: “At present many of them are denied opportunities to elevate their work because of the lack of structures in place to support them. The Nigerian Filmmaker’s Guide to Success seeks to partly address this problem by pulling together high level industry guidance and best practice in a single format….It is crucial that this valuable information is centralized for the current generation as well as those to come."

We will keep you up to date with the progress of the book and release date.
