Lagos - A film producer Kelvin Ushie urged the Motion Picture Producers (MPP) to make sure they create epic movies that would be appreciated worldwide.
Ushie said in Lagos that if producers packaged their productions better, the products would sell.
"When we do good movies and highlightquality stories, Nigeria will be a home to identify with in film production. It is not enough to call us number one or two and we do not producemovies that can tell our stories.
"There are movies that are good but we need to do more. Most of us go for cheap production; that is why we do not have good story lines," he siad.
Ushie said that with proper packaging, Nigerian film producers could easily win awards and honours.
The producer said that some people indulged in all sorts of films, just to earn money.
Ushie, however, said practitioners in the industry should be blamed for not coming together to take the film industry to another level.
He said that film practitioners could also use the medium to enlighten the public on government policies.
"We really have to use film as a corrective measure to changesociety.
"Films tell stories and how things can be best handled. It is the responsibility of government to fight for the good of the society," the producer added.
