Why I am Broke-Shan George


By FRANCIS OGBONNA

Prolific movie producer, Shan George has hinted that if it were not for the intervention of certain investors, who believed in her capability as a producer, her most recent flick, ‘Grey Shadows’ would not have seen the light of the day.

Citing her mum’s health challenge as the reason for her being cash strapped, George disclosed in a chat with My Backyard story that the situation had hampered her ability to churn out movies the way she used to.

Her words: “I have a whole lot of films awaiting production, but lacked the funds to get them done. Like you know my mum, because of her health challenge has been bed ridden for a while. Now because of that I had to take a break to take care of her as her only daughter.

“That not only took my time it also ate up all my funds leaving me with nothing to produce my films. However, thank God for my son-Delnoi Otsemobor; another investor Mrs. Doris Ohazuruike and her husband who rallied around me to make sure this project became a reality.”

‘Grey Shadows’, born out of her personal encounter with medical personnel while she took care of her hailing mum was shot to address the failure of people who emphasize religion over service to human which true religion preaches.

The movie also features other stars, among which is Kehinde Bankole, who won the revelation of the year award at the 2009 Best of Nollywood Awards.
