Filmmaking is big business in Nigeria. According to a UNESCO Institute for Statistics report, developing countries accounted for 59% of global movie production in 2015, with the 'booming' cinema industry in Nigeria helping to drive this growth. Back in 2010, the country produced 1,074 films over the course of a single year, making the Nigerian film industry one of the most prolific in the world. It's for good reason that it's known as 'Nollywood', and often cited as second only to Bollywood in terms of output.
But what's behind this success? How have filmmakers in Nigeria been able to maintain such a fast pace of production? And what does the Nollywood moniker actually mean to the people who work in the industry?
"An independent collective consciousness is how I would describe it," says Daniel Ehimen, a director and cinematographer who's worked across features, commercials and documentaries. "In Hollywood or Bollywood, there is a structure with a lot of specialisation, various guilds, unions and codes of practice. We don't have that. When it comes to Nollywood, you have to put on many hats."
