She made this statement at Golden Tulip Hotel some weeks back during the women in film making forum which was organized by Archi Africa.
The forum which was moderated by multiple award winning actors Majid Michel saw some renowned female movie makers like Leila Djansi, Juliet Appea as well as some movie makers across Africa.
Despite the fact that the theme was built around women in film making, there were general discussions about the way our movie industry is being considered by players in it and those out of it.
Some notable personalities in the movie industry who were present included John Dumelo, Pascal Amanfo, James Gardiner, Prince David Osei, Ebbie Bright alongside some up and coming stars. The media fraternity was also highly represented from all quarters including TV, radio and newspaper.
The forum is a monthly discussion platform to sanitize the movie industry with experts and players in the movie industry with experts and players in the movie industry.
After Ebbie Bright has kept her silence throughout the discussion, Flex newspaper reporters noted that a statement from Leila Djansi who was on the high table as a resource person infuriated Ebbie Bright to come out with this statement:
“No matter what we do as an industry, this is what we have and this is what we can boast off so if one feels that we have no industry to boast off, he or she can leave the industry for us to manage it our own way.
Sometimes I feel very uneasy when I hear people speaking negative about Opera Square and what they do there. I think we have to appreciate them because no matter how poor or disorganized they are at the moment, they are the same people who are helping us to market our movies else these movies will never be distributed.
What I have observed in our movie industry which seems problematic is the fact that our industry lacks professionals. We don’t have more professionals in our movie industry and that is what I believe is disturbing our movie business.
If we should have more professionals in the industry, trust me, everything will be fine” actress Ebbie Bright added amidst claps form forum participants.
Ebbie Bright is known in our movie industry as a notorious young lady who does well in playing the bad girl role.
She is very eloquent in what she does and the industry has accepted her with open arms. She has featured in productions from Venus Films, Marhils Production and most of the award winning movie producers in Ghana.
