Every year, the Canada high commissioner in Ghana gets some lectures in Film and Television from Canada to have a workshop with film makers in Ghana.
This year’s workshop started on the 5th to 7th of December. During the workshop, they had some guests like the Deputy Minister of Education and a member of parliament at Cape Coast North (HON. BARBARA AYISI ASHER) who gave a brief talk about how we can promote our culture through our movies and also she gave an assurance that the film industry will rise up again.
The main guest speaker MR. SOCRATE SAFO (the director of National commission on culture) was enthused by the words from the Deputy Minister of Education, and backs her up by saying that with the Creative Art sector in conjunction with the government they will try their possible best to support the industry to be able to reach it maximum height. He also said, it will be best if we can have one data for film industry and also a fixed price that any artist will take from a producer. As he spoke, some of the industry players such as BOB SMITH JNR. Popularly known as DIABOLO MAN, WAAKYE, MR.AKWETEY KANYI, and other organizations and institutions such as FIPAG, GAMI VISION, CREW ASSOCIATION, FLASH MEDIA TRAINING STUDENTS, AND NAFTI STUDENTS gave him a full support on his words.CLEMENT AMANKWAH popularly known as OPAM a Director and Producer was the main organizer for the workshop. He said that if this workshop will continue every year, then it should be like how this year has been which was supported and sponsored by the Canada High Commissioner in Ghana, Commission on culture , Multichoice , GO TV and the coordinator JAMES ABOAGYE ( Formal Secretary of FIPAG ).
The facilitators (MR. PAUL ANDREW AND HELGA- LIZ HABERFELLNER) a renowned Film lectures in France was very proud at the end of the workshop. They said this workshop has been the best ever and promised to be available anytime they call.

Almost every major camera manufacturer has implemented 4K shooting somewhere in their lines.
Perhaps most impressively, the technology has been successfully stretched over models of all billings. So, whether you’ve only got a few hundred pounds to spend or you’re willing to stretch to a handsome four-figure sum, it’s likely you can afford a camera with the technology on board.
Just because two cameras have 4K recording, however, doesn’t mean to say they’re equal. The use of different sensors and different methods of capture, together with variations in output possibilities, mean two 4K cameras can behave quite differently.
Even something as simple as whether the camera uses the full width of the sensor or applies a crop factor is vital to consider, as this has a significant effect on your effective angle of view. And all of the above is before we even consider supporting features such as headphone sockets, focus peaking, zebra patterning and Log profiles.
“At long last the battle is ended and our beloved country, Ghana, is free forever.” That was how our first President
Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah put it in his famous speech on the day that Ghana attained her independence (March
6, 1957) from British colonial rule! Now with the arrival of the free SHS in Ghana, we can say, “At long last the
promise has become a reality and free SHS is here forever.”
Free SHS has been the dream of many a president of Ghana since the early 2000s in the light of affordable secondary
school education to ALL CHILDREN in the country. I therefore personally congratulate Nana Akufo Addo for his
political courage and financial commitment to making SHS free in Ghana at long last.
A lot of people in numerous roles in the Ghanaian movie industry, both English Language and Akan, have
complained endlessly about the negative impact foreign soaps such as Kumkum Bhagya, and Veera are having on their growth.
These soaps are immensely popular and on free to air tv, therefore the argument is that support is provided to them in terms of sponsorship and viewership at the expense of the local movies/shows.
The Film Owners Association of Ghana (FIPAG) has thus announced plans to fight back against the popularity of
these shows. Executive Member Mr. Paul Agyei told Ashh Fm in an interview that the association is holding talks
with government which they hope would yield some concrete results in tackling the menace.
