The CEO OF ABNWEBMASTERS.COM and the head of the IT department of Potential Group of Company Mr. Nelson A. Asamoah spoke on an interview with Ghnewsarena, concerning how actors could make money in the movie industry, he says;
“I am not encouraging producers not to pay actors for their services, but I believe that its not always the duty of the producer to promote and make money to pay actors for their services. The world is changing and actors whether upcoming or popular should step up their game in this business if they want the industry to grow and make money for themselves.
An actor could make over 200 fans show up in a movie premiere because he or she partakes in the movie. And in the long round, the actor gets nothing or something little from his or her hard work or fans. It’s about time actors should realize that it’s because of them their fans, followers, and love ones patronize the tickets and movies, not because of the production houses. Movie Production makes money for themselves for their next project not for you as an actor or actress.
There are lots of Uprising actors who have loyal fans, followers and love one’s who support them where ever they go. They have huge fun-base but they are not making enough money out of that. Acting is a business not only about likes on social media but being capable to make money from your human capital.
I sometimes wonder why actors complain of producers not paying them after a huge premiere with a lot of people attending.
Why can’t actors change the game and stand for themselves?
I hear people saying that acting cant be a full time paid job and I laugh at them because they just don’t understand the business. As all businesses need customers to patronize their products or services, Actors need businesses to give them customers through their influence. I love Funny Face, Kwadwo Nkansah, Yvonne Nelson, Nana Ama Mcbrown, and few others so much not because they are popular but they are using their acting fame, fan base, and understanding of their craft to attract businesses for themselves.
If you are really serious in this Craft Business, you have to learn how to market yourself and have an influence on people. That is your job as an actor or actress, go beyond the acting skills or talent.
As an actor, you represent a character that has to educate, influence, communicate and entertain the viewers or listeners through your voice, actions, and style of presentation to promote an agenda.
How will a company call you to be a brand ambassador if you cant even sell your own movie tickets to your fans on your website? Do most actors or actress have their own websites, Where they can sell movie tickets and make money for themselves? and where they can have their headshots, biography and acting resume, so casting directors can read about them or call them for jobs?
Where they can have time to communicate with their fans and regulate what they want their fans or people to know about them?
I believe the system is not ready to give you the money and fame you want, but you can create a system for yourselves and make every fan, follower, and love one supports your works and stop expecting and depending on producers only to pay you. Get your own website from ABNWEBMASTERS.COM and make money for yourself.”
