It hasn't been so easy at all. You know we all lives in different states, and all of us have another job to make an ends meet.  We cannot spend more than 3 days at a go at a movie location.  Most of our movies ends up unfinished due to individual time limitation. It costs a lot of money too. Reasons most of us prefer to come to Nigeria instead.
