US-based Ghanaian-Liberian comedian and actor Michael Blackson says he wants to shoot a movie in Ghana with some local actors just to promote the country.
According to him, the motivation behind this is that, the movie production in Ghana is not the best and wants to raise it to a higher level and to create a chance for actors and fashion designers to showcase their skills.
He also shared an experience of seeing some Ghanaian productions some time back and how awful they looked.
“The production looked terrible and I’m like we need better television, I think that has got better you know , like I’m ok where the entertainers at.”
“I already talked to a guy here about it, I want to come back and take that character from ‘Coming 2 America’ and make a movie and I want to shoot in Ghana.”
”Let’s put Ghana on the map, let’s get our actors some jobs , let’s get them known to the world.” He added.
Mr. Blackson disclosed he will be building a multi-purpose facility where all sorts of talents can go to acquire some skills for their chosen careers.
“Ghanaians are so talented, you know we have to get out of us, you know people don’t know where to go. The actors don’t know where to get acting class, models don’t know where to find where they can become models and its so crazy.
“I was speaking with my assistant and talked about some kind of something to accommodate actors and fashion designers and that’s my ultimate goal.”
