Steps to follow to achieve your Nollywood dreams

Nollywood is a sobriquet that originally referred to the Nigerian film industry. The origin of the term dates back to the early 2000s, traced to an article in The New York Times. The term 'Nollywood' was coined by the New York Times journalist Norimitsu Onishi in 2002 when he observed film-making activity in Lagos, Nigeria. The term mirrors two of the most famous areas of film production: Hollywood in the US, and Bollywood in India's Bombay.

AUDITIONS

What To Expect At A <a class=Nollywood Audition | TNS"/>

An audition is a sample performance by an actor, singer, musician, dancer or other performer. It typically involves the performer displaying their talent through a previously memorized and rehearsed solo piece or by performing a work or piece given to the performer at the audition or shortly before. The casting process begins with Casting Directors breaking down scripts, identifying speaking roles and their descriptive profiles, and notifying agents (and online casting services if the audition will be open) of the available roles. ... Actors who make that first cut are contacted for auditions.
