Documenting the journey of a Cameroonian filmmaker
The Cameroonian Film Industry has been going strong now for about 5 years… Yet we do not have a STAR! You know what I mean when I say STAR? Great acting, a good body structure (no pot bellies, we don’t wanna see the folds, come on now, – size, 10, 12, 14 is cool but it’s television, aesthetics matter, I’m sorry). Fluent in English, French and Pidgin English, comfortable in their skin and humble. You have to be or feign humility to last in showbiz.
Truth is movies are make-believe, and often times we want to see fantasy land – ideals and not be reminded about everyday life. So if you consider taking your acting career to new heights, watch your diet, exercise, use good body lotions, spandex, learn English, read motivating books, practice, practice, practice different acting techniques. If you think loud make-up and nice clothes will make you a star.. Eh, think again my dear. #camercelebrites
Notice how Ms Yvonne Nelson sits…Notice her skin tone… Watch the interview, now you get my point?

Guys, you see what I’m talking about? Thank you.
WHAT’S YOUR TAKE?
