Nigerian actor Gideon Okeke has dished out a word of advice to the makers of the popular television series The Johnsons, schooling them on how to utilize the use of sound.
As a thespian with knowledge on the inner workings of filmmaking, Gideon Okeke picked out the character of Emu (played by your Ada Ameh), saying that her exclamation with the word ‘Akpor’ was rather ‘too loud’, offering his candid advice for the sound department.
Emu is a beautiful character. But the actor should be reminded that she’s wearing a microphone within her wardrobe as those shouts of Aaaakpooor can be rather loud. Consider that the set echoes and it can come off, a tad too theatrical for the medium.”
Okeke was quick to add that his words weren’t meant to disrespect, saying:
I say this with all due respect Eric. You remember we were trained to make the audience forget there’s a remote control. Well done brotherly. RESPECT LARGE. No Vitriol.”
