Since the premiere of the highly anticipated movie, ‘Banana Island Ghost’ shot and photographed by ace cinematographer, Cardoso Imagery, the movie has continued to raise the bar in the movie industry even as some observers of happenings in the entertainment industry suggested that the movie is capable of setting new standard for movie makers in the country.
The star-studded action-comedy film starred ‘Chigul’ Chioma Omeruah as Ijeoma, who is paired with Patrick Diabuah the Ghost. The Ghost has three days to fall in love and she will do anything to save her father’s house in Banana Island from the bank coming to reclaim it in three days.
Speaking on the project that has once again illustrated his unrivaled influence in the entertainment industry as one of the most respected cinematographers in the country, Cardoso, who is the brains behind the musical videos of notable artistes within and outside the country, disclosed that shooting the movie was a major leap in his career.
According to him, “When I was contacted for the job, I knew it was not the kind of job that come from the regular stuff that we do. It was a capital intensive project that would raise the bar in many years to come. So, what the people are about to see at the cinema is not what they are used to. I assure them that their expectations of the movie would be met,” he enthused.
The movie, which its trailer has reportedly grossed over one million views on You Tube is set to hit the cinemas across the country and the producers have assured the people of the value for their money. Banana Island Ghost is written and directed by BB Sasore and is produced by Omorinsojo Spaine and Tolu Olusoga.
