Movie Producer appeals over ban of police uniforms in movies
One of Ghana’s finest movie producers, Eugene Moratt of E&E Productions has appealed to the Ghana Police Service to reconsider their statement concerning the use of police uniforms in making movies.
Mr. Moratt in an interview with seancitygh.com found sense in the police’s statement but he however thinks that the decision will have a negative impact on their work.
He said that, "there are some of the productions who abuse the use of the police uniforms. Some dress anyhow in the uniforms and a whole lot. But, I think they should have given us at least a notice. This is coming to us as a surprise.
“They (police) should at least sit down with us and give us directions because there may be some producers who before their pronouncement might have worked already on movies which used the uniforms. They can even educate us on where and how to use the uniform. We just beg them. Else the value of the movies concerning police will be less."
The Ghana Police Service recently issued a statement banning Ghanaian movie producers from using the police uniforms in making movies.
This according to the police, the movie producers are abusing the use of the uniforms in and that goes and that it tarnishes the image of the police profession.
Mr. Moratt is the brain behind some favorite movies like Fulani Land Guard, Ghana Police, Libya Akwantuo and Electricity Power.
