Shooting a movie premiere.

The perks for a photographer like me (besides the photographing) would be visiting different places, meeting new people and becoming an integral part of the event.  I had the priviledge of photographing a Nollywood movie premiere—Gem of the Rainforest, starring Ramsey Nouah.  This crossover Nollywood movie is directed by Don Okolo (Material Witness, Blood and Destiny) and produced by Nkem DenChukwu—Author - Tribal Echoes.

When you meet this charismatic team, you'd know why they've drawn quite a crowd out to support the premiere at AMC Loews theatre Fountain 18, Houston Texas.

Members in the cast include: Perez Egbi, kae Shakir, Joe Grisaffi, Merlisa Langellier and Roxy Rebel.

Nollywood is headed in an interesting direction, we'll have to wait and see.  I'll keep you posted.  In the meantime, catch them next in Washington DC September 13 at the GIAMA awards.  Premiere itinerary include London, Chicago, Los Angeles, to name a few.

Perez Egbi is a star to watch...
