Free Screening for Nigerian Movie Goers…
30 days producers plans to distribute their movie to the public Free of charge for a limited time... Watch now pay later if you like it!!
Grand Terrace, Calif. November 12, 2008 -----The producers of 30 days the movie, are so confident in their work, they have decided to let consumers watch the movie for free and pay later if they like the movie. This is an unprecedented move on the part of the producers, and never heard of industry marketing strategy.
However, according to Toyin Dawodu the executive producer of 30 days, “our goal is to showcase our work, and to prove to the world, especially Nigerian movie fans that Nigerian movie makers are capable of producing quality movies that rivals other world standards.”
Says Toyin, “the Nigerian movie industry is growing so rapidly, and one of the biggest complaints from consumers is the quality of the movies. This has led to almost a stalemate between the consuming public and the producer. The majority of the producers are not willing to invest so much in producing quality movies, and the consumers want to pay as little as possible because of the poor quality.” Something has to give; hence we decided to let the consumers decide for themselves. We are so confident in our product and story line that the whole family will be happy to be part of the enjoyment of watching our movie.
The first test of the free screening starts on 11/24/08 and any one can enroll in the program to be among the first 1000 people in the test run.

Here are some of the reviews 30 days has received:
“30 days has thrown down the gauntlet not only to Nigerian Filmmakers but also to Nigerians and fans of Nollywood”
- Kola Munnis, (Executive producer Osofia in London)
“30 Days gets a thumb up for taking the time in pre-production, on location and in post to do all kinds of things right.”
- Sola Osofisan, Founder of Naijarules and Nigerians in America
“30 Days is a film bristling with lethal gusto. It shocks, grips, and entertains; all elements which make for exciting viewing. In the heat of the tension, passion, and suspense is the unsuspecting mastermind who only the clairvoyant will begin to suspect until events unfold in the course of the movie.”
“A timely piece, especially as the Nigerian government tackles corruption and abuse of office by public officers. It pays special attention to sound, lighting and other technical qualities.”
“The film reeks of pervasive vengeance and un-conformist tendencies, which culminates into a richly contrasting pool of the league of rebels who now see themselves as the last bastion in a morally decrepit society.
“Be warned: not all pretty girls have lipsticks in their handbags, some of them carry guns! 30 Days is a terrific thriller set in modern-day Nigeria.”
- Joy Bewaji, Founder of Festacbreed Magazine
