MARA: GOOD DAY, CAN WE MEET YOU? FOR PEOPLE NOT FAMILIAR WITH WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU DO?
AA: I am Aina Ayomide Emmanuel, A Film maker and Director under Creative Alpha Minds. I am current undergoing my Masters degree program at the Afebabalola University, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State.
MARA: WE LEARNT YOU ARE CURRENTLY SHOOTING A MOVIE THAT WOULD WOW US ALL
AA: (Smiles) Yes we are currently working on a Film titled “JUDGE ME”! Under the platform of Creative Alpha Minds. It will be mind blowing!
MARA: WE HAVE SO MANY NOLLYWOOD MOVIES DEALING WITH VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMENFOLKS, SO WHAT WOULD MAKE ” JUDGE ME” DIFFERENT?
AA: (Clears throat) Well, I would say, “JUDGE ME” is not your regular kind of Nollywood movie, trust me.
MARA: GUESS WE CAN’T WAIT TO FEAST OUR SIGHTS ON “JUDGE ME” THEN. BUT BEFORE WE GO FURTHER, WHO/WHAT IS CREATIVE ALPHA MINDS PLEASE?
AA: Creative Alpha Minds is a team of creative minds, we are mainly a film making platform with a drive to relate the good news to all in the most realistic way! We deal mainly in film making!
MARA: SO WHAT EXACTLY IS “JUDGE ME” ALL ABOUT?
AA: As the writer and director of the movie “Judge Me”, I have seen and experienced the rate at which women get violently treated in relationships, not to talk of marriage!
The movie so titled “Judge me” will place thoughts in the mind of viewers! Thoughts like, how should you live with a man who has anger issues? How should you handle a man who beats up his partner?
Women are delicate but definitely not weak! Is it a crime to love a man who has anger issues and can go extra mile to punish at the slight provocation!
The film being a short film is coming out in a different way! Its a no dialogue movie, which I know is rare! The movie will draw pity and tears, please do watch it as soon as it hits the screen.
MARA: WHAT WAS MOST CHALLENGING ABOUT THE WHOLE MOVIE?
AA: The most challenging part of the movie is the casting during the production. Before casting was done, we had lot of people in mind for the roles but we needed a person who can not just act but can interpret the role perfectly. But thank God we had the very best cast for the Movie! It was indeed a nice time shooting with the likes of Segun Idowu and Inaju Rhoda.
MARA: HOW WAS THE CASTING DONE, LOOKING AT HOW SENSITIVE THE STORYLINE IS?
AA: As much as we promote actors who are new in the industry, we still had to go for actors who are not just experienced but also professional! I could say it was based on recommendation.
MARA: THAT’S WONDERFUL, SO WHO ESPECIALLY DO YOU THINK SHOULD WATCH THE MOVIE?
AA: Everyone! Young, Old, middle aged, women, men! Those in a relationship, those not in a relationship, as long as you intend to get married or you are already married, then you should really see the movie!
MARA: AND WHEN WILL THE MOVIE BE RELEASED IF I MAY ASK?
AA: By 22nd of March this 2019, the movie will be available on different platforms.
MARA: NOW FOR YOUR FANS WHO MIGHT HAVE ONE OR TWO THINGS TO SAY TO YOU, HOW DO THEY REACH YOU? I MEAN WHAT ARE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA HANDLES?
AA: I will be eager to hear from my fans. Meanwhile they can simply follow me on Instagram via @officialalphaminds and @ay_inspired, or Creative Alpha minds on Facebook.
MARA: ALRIGHT THANK YOU SO MUCH MR. EMMANUEL, FOR THIS WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY, WE SURE DO HOPE FOR MORE INTRIGUING MOMENTS WITH YOU IN THE NEAREST FUTURE.
AA: You’re most welcomed!
