Kwara gov’t planning production studio
The government of Kwara State in Western Nigeria is planning to build a production studio to position the state as a new powerhouse in the audiovisual sector in West Africa.
Plans for Sugar Factory Film Studios were revealed this week by the Kwara State government, lead by executive governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
“The Sugar Factory Film Studios will provide an avenue for aspiring filmmakers and creatives to have access to world-class sound stages for TV/film production at sustainable rates, attracting big production companies to come and shoot in Kwara,” said the Kwara State government.
The plan is to stimulate the local economy by creating employment opportunities for young people across the state. A visual arts centre that will house post-production facilities is also under construction.
The Kwara State government also released artists’ impressions of what the studio would look like, with what appear to be five sound stages, edit suites and production offices in a landscaped setting.
