Before a movie stage is set, there has to be an audition, primarily for upcoming actresses and actors. During auditions, many actors are assigned a role to perform individually, and whoever does it best plays the role. It is through this means that producers and movie directors get the best talents. Therefore, aspiring actresses and actors look out for as many auditions as possible. Since film locations are not exclusive to a particular region of the country, the opportunity is therefore open to people in different regions depending on the locations the producers choose.
In some cases, producers advertise the Audition. Other times, its never get advertised to the general public. They either use already established actors or recruit ‘cast’ members from a reputable institute. For more detail, read How to Become a Nigerian Actor/Actress.
What it Takes to Become a Scam Victim
Cynthia Osukogu – The name rings bell? Unsuspecting and carefree, the young woman ended up badly. She did not want to become an actress, she only wanted to do business. Her killers confessed that they specialize in luring rich ladies, she wasn’t their first victim. That is exactly how criminals treat most unsuspecting Nollywood aspirants who go out of their way looking for anyone who could promise them anything called acting role without due diligence.
Some other online scam artistes belong to a syndicate to lure young women who wish to pursue their career in the movie industry to their snare. The bait they use is promises they cannot fulfill, messages that sound promising yet fraudulent when you pay close attention.
Now consider the the aforementioned message: Nollywood registration form online. Quite tempting? Yes, to those who are potential victims. Actors are intelligent people and if you want to be one, you must be intelligent, being able to distinguish what is real and what is scam.
No Nollywood Registration Nor Audition Form Online
If you log on to a site advertising registration form online, and instead of the registration form, you get a phone number, run for your dear life! I do not need to tell you its a bait to lure you into parting with your money or even getting killed.
Now, this is what scam victims see, those who hopefully call those numbers, they get subjected to sex abuse/rape, their nude pictures taken for blackmail and further extortion. The supposed film producers keep demanding money from you until they get as much as they want or may never stop demanding. Then the phone number you once called, the location you have been to, the people you once meet, will exist no more and you will be left in anguish.
Acting career is fulfilling, but what fulfills more is how you go about it. Not everyone who wishes will become an actor. Therefore, follow due process, contact the right people and make sure you conduct due diligence before meeting anyone. It is our humble wish that you remain safe in all you do including the process of pursuing your acting career.
