For some time now most upcoming movie stars who used to attend movie auditions with the aim of archiving their future dreams through acting have now shifted to advertising, with the reason that it is not easy for them to break through into the movie industry.
Angela Tabiri one of the newest faces in the movie industry after getting the opportunity to star in the just released movie titled “Sons of Satan” revealed to NigeriaFilms.Com some of the reasons why many upcoming movie stars in Ghana are going into adverting, especially the ladies.
In a chit chat with Angela, she stated that most of the time,the upcoming actresses’ who want to enter into the film industry go into TV advertisements because they feel the advertizing agencies that handle the TV adverts work with more professionalism than production houses that handle film productions.
Explaining what she meant by professionalism she said that in the advertizing field there are no reasons to sleep with any agent or date any agent before you get the opportunity to star in the advert. Secondly, the payment is very good compared to the film industry and thirdly the advertizing agencies work with time unlike the movie industry where everything is otherwise.
She added that in the world of advertizement you have an agent who will go and lobby Jobs for you but in the world of movie making in Ghana (Africa) you the artiste have to go and search for your own job and also pass through lots of stress “I will say the movie industry is not well starched yet compares to the advertizing field and since both are well related most of us choose advert to movie making”.
Angela has starred in about 50 top adverts like; Vodaphone, Captains Dry Gin, Premier Soap, Playboy, Languor, Sun Silk Hair Pomade, Pusher Bitters, Merchant Bank, Pretty Lady with Stacy etc. Also music videos like Kwasi Pees latest video currently enjoying massive air play, Reggie Rockstone ft Beenie Man, Amakye Dede, Rex Omar as well as Okyeame Kofi. She also has about 4 movies to credit, with titles like Hot Fork, Adults Only, Sons of Satan, Upcoming Hotel Babylon.
She believes The Captain Dry Gin brought her to the lime light,
