BIG GIVEAWAY: Are you a Nollywood pro? Are you an amateur set on making it big in Nollywood and on the world stage?

The 100th Commonsense Series

How time flies! 

Two years ago, I began shooting the common sense messages in video format as my non partisan contribution to the development of the full strata of Nigerian society from the grassroots to the very top. 

Now, after 99 episodes, we are about to shot the 100th episode.

Now, this episode is all about giving back!

God has blessed me immensely through Nigeria and by His grace I own Dream Magic Studios, one of the most modern studios on earth!

It is based in Los Angeles and used to be owned by the legendary and sometimes infamous Larry Flint from whom I bought it.

It has some of the very best sound stages the world can boast of and they can be converted into almost any scene required to make a movie.

One of my clients/tenants is Kevin Hart and the studio regularly plays host to some of the best and brightest contemporary movie and TV stars. The best always attracts the best.

To give back to Nigeria and help develop the Nollywood movie industry, I want to shoot a Nollywood/Hollywood movie that will take the world by storm and show the entertainment industry that Nigeria’s movie industry has come of age.

I will finance this movie and guarantee world wide distribution both on television and cinema.

Now, here’s where you come in.

Are you a Nollywood pro? Are you an amateur set on making it big in Nollywood and on the world stage?

Send us your script and a panel to be headed by the queen of the African movie industry, our very own Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, will rate the scripts and select the best script and I will sign a contract with the winner and make their script into a movie that will be of sufficient quality to qualify for entry into the world’s very best Film Festivals. 

Who knows, you could even win an Oscar! 

Send your scripts to Let us make Nigeria’s movie industry the biggest and best in the world together!

And remember, my name is Ben Murray-Bruce and I just want to make Commonsense!

  8. Sir, is dere any room for an amateur actress to come and act some minor roles in the movie? U can reply via my email: i will still send in my script. The name is Gift thomas . Thank u


  9. A welcome initiative. Though the Nollywood/Hollywood aspect needs some clarification: will this be a Nigerian story shot in Hollywood in collaboration with Hollywood stars (eg: Black November, 30 Days in Atlanta, Trip to Jamaica) or a diasporan themed film? I ask because a lot of those types of films are already being made (Nollywood USA) but with little or no relatability to Nigerian audiences at home. Diasporan stories rarely draw a crowd in Nigeria because they don’t always capture the essence of life in Nigeria, which one would be the priority to sell Nigeria to the world. Nevertheless, it is a welcome initiative. Furthermore, what is the criteria for the scripts being sought after as well as deadline for the entries?

  22. The #biggiveaway is a great opportunity and a challenging one.
    I want to ask if acknowledgments were sent to those submitted earlier so they don’t start bothering if the submission got lost in spam.



  23. This entry is a great opportunity. i have already sent mine, but share the same thought with Kpac, and that is asking if acknowledgement is sent to those who have submitted theirs, as this will clear the doubt if submission has got lost or something. Please, i need this feed back
