Dimeji Ajibola, the young producer and director of one of the most anticipated films of 2012, Hoodrush, has spoken of his passion and challenges about the movie whose trailer is generating attraction on the blogsphere while awaiting release at the cinemas.
Ajibola said it has been a wonderful experience coming up with such a flick and he is sure it would be a huge success whenever it hits cinemas in Nigeria and abroad.
“This is a passionate project for me as a greenhorn in the movie business. Every movie has its challenges, so Hoodrush had its own but we were able to work as a team,” Ajibola told Showbiz Trends.
The director also said that while some of the cast were auditioned, some of the movie’s lead acts were invited on the strength of their experience.
Hoodrush is a musical movie which features an impressive and vibrant cast of Bimbo Akintola, OC Ukeje, Chelsea Eze, Gabriel Afolayan, Bolanle Ninolowo, Ifeoma Agu, Lee Byoma and others.
Ajibola, an alumnus of New York Film Academy and a hand at the Universal Studios in California, is best described as a creative entrepreneur in filmmaking, virtual worlds, animation, cartoons, interactive digital media and music. His background is a blend of traditional skills and digital art.
Hoodrush will be in the cinemas from 12 October.
