After winning the AMVCA in 2016 with their movie BINTA OFEGE, Abiodun Jimoh and Jumoke Odetola have taken the game up an inch by producing a high-tech surrealist concept that makes BINTA looks like a child’s play. The intriguing thriller set in the heart of Abeokuta and another 100 km drive away from the Ogun State Capital, Lufodo and Baale Village in Odeda Local Government, Ogun State.
The film shoot which lasted 8 days did not go without BTS events.
On the first day of shoot, Jumoke Odetola fell and had a sprained ankle. With bruises and inflammations on her legs, she carried on. Urging the entire crew that the show must go on. As if that was not enough, the makeup artiste accidentally gushed a makeup chemical into Jumoke’s eyes, this had us visiting the optician at Healthplus, Oke-ilewo, Abeokuta
On the last day of shoot, Gabriel’s front tyre detached from the mechanical arms holding it. This happened on motion and it was a scary experience for Uzor Osimkpa, another actress in the car who just had a major accident with her car. Luckily, no one was hurt and the car was fixed in no time
Uzor Osimkpa, an energetic actress had a major face-off with the Production Manager (Yusuf Olohungbebe). Yusuf believed Uzor lacked respect for elders but Uzor proved that respect is not about bowing, prostrating or calling everybody Brother this or Sister that. It was a h eated argument on set but the director (Abiodun Jimoh) and veteran actress Jumoke George were able to resolve the issue before it got out of hands
In the reincarnation scene, a lot of spooky events took place behind the scene and at one point, every member of the cast and crew is scared. They had a feeling that some unseen agent were among us
On the set of SOMEWHERE IN THE DARK, live magics are performed and the tricks are revealed
So many things to look forward to in this engaging, never-seen-before concept. Somewhere In The Dark. Something worth seeing
